“What’s so great about each gala is the overall energy and enthusiasm that not only goes into the planning, but the actual event,” said Christine Scully, development director for The Pavilion. “With so many new and exciting changes and additions, the 2014 gala is going to be able to give so much back to The Pavilion. At the end of the day that’s what the gala is all about.”
Go back in time with music by the legendary British-American rock band, Foreigner. Yes, the real Foreigner! With ten multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including "Juke Box Hero," "Feels Like The First Time," "Urgent," "Head Games," "Say You Will," "Cold as Ice," "Hot Blooded," and the worldwide No. 1 hit, "I Want To Know What Love Is," Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game.
Money raised from the gala benefits The Pavilion’s performing arts events, educational outreach programs and The Pavilion Partners Fine Arts Scholarship Fund. The Pavilion is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization.
