¡CityArts! announces the eighth annual ¡CityArts! All That Glitters Gala to be held on December 1st at the Roger Williams Park Casino in Providence, RI.

And as tradition warrants, we will have our City of Trees Silent Auction, where 25-30 artists, designers, and agencies will create sculptural and inspirational trees for purchase. Cocktails, fine food, festive fun and live music will complement the evening, and trees and/or elements of the trees will be our backdrop. Event tickets are $60. Sponsorship packages of $1,500 to $10,000 are available, and Patron Donors who contribute $350 will receive two tickets to the event.
The evening will begin with a VIP Champagne Reception for Sponsors at 5:30pm. Doors open to the public at 6pm. Live music will be performed by SuperChief Trio. Creative food selections by Fine Catering by Russell Morin. Exhibitions of youth art work will be displayed throughout.
