The Center cancels annual benefit event, seeks $500k to remain operational

JACKSON, Wyo. — For the past 11 years, The Center’s Annual Benefit has been one of the most anticipated events of the year, bringing world-class talent to an intimate stage. Out of an abundance of concern for the health and safety of the Jackson Hole community, The Center has made the difficult decision to cancel their only fundraiser of the year.

This decision, along with their inability to program for the foreseeable future, has left The Center with a funding gap of over $500,000 for 2020.

The Center is asking for your help now through their Set the Stage initiative to ensure they remain operational and able to serve the community well into the future. The Center is confident that their supporters and community want to ensure their viability along with the more than 20 organizations that call their campus home.

The Center continues to be a community hub, both physically and virtually. Through their virtual programming, live streams and social media content, they are supporting local artists and community organizations, helping all to heal and stay connected through art. You can view more about their work HERE.

The Center needs to ensure the health and well-being of their home during this unprecedented time so they can be here for the Jackson Hole community for many years to come.

The Center is asking that you help Set The Stage for their return and donate now so that they meet their goal of raising $500,000 by August 1.

Please contact Anne Ladd, The Center’s Development Director, at (307) 413-3335 and she will process your donation over the phone.
