The Hylton Performing Arts Center presents its 8th Anniversary Gala and After Party on Saturday, April 14, 2018, celebrating the arts in Manassas, Prince William County, and Northern Virginia, as well as those who have supported the local community and the Hylton Center. This year, the Gala also honors Julie and Buck Waters for their steadfast dedication and support of the local arts and the Hylton Center. Funds raised through the Anniversary Gala benefit the Hylton Center’s artistic performances, arts education programs, and outreach initiatives, in addition to the Hylton Center’s Endowment to ensure artistic excellence in the performances and programs that it offers. Details are available at hyltoncenter.org/give/galas.

The Gala begins with a reception and dinner—sponsored by Compton & Duling, LC—on the magnificent Merchant Hall stage, allowing guests the opportunity to mingle, enjoy a wonderful meal, and celebrate the honorees. Immediately following dinner is one of the most entertaining and unique features of the Gala—the After Party, sponsored by premium local distillery KO Distilling.

The After Party is a thrilling portion of the Gala evening that includes: signature bourbon and gin craft cocktails by KO Distilling; savory snacks and sweet desserts; a silent art auction with works from regional artists and George Mason University alumni; a jazz lounge in the Didlake Grand Foyer, featuring the smooth sounds of Mason School of Music’s Darden Purcell; and music by one of D.C.’s premier dance bands—Keynote—in the Gregory Family Theater.
