The Stars Come Out! A Gala Event to Benefit the Gold Coast Arts Center & Gold Coast International Film Festival

CaptureWe are rolling out the red carpet and bringing the Gala back home to our own unique space, as we did for our grand opening in 1997 when we honored legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola.

The evening will begin in the theatre where guests will enjoy “A Conversation with Robert Wagner” moderated by a special guest and attended by Mr. Wagner’s friends, as well as our own supporters who want to support the important work that we do here. The festivities will move up to the Arts Center where cocktails, delicious food, music, and a silent auction, as well as our Award presentations will happen. The evening will conclude with a scrumptious dessert reception!

We will be presenting Hollywood film and TV star, Robert Wagner, with the 2018 Burton Moss Hollywood Golden Era Award, presented last year at a private event in NYC to Rita Hayworth and accepted by her daughter Princess Yasmin Aga Khan. This year, by bringing Mr. Wagner and friends to the Arts Center, we are showcasing our own beautiful region.
