    • Noche de Estrellas 2019 (Night of Stars 2019)

      Noche de Estrellas 2019 (Night of Stars 2019)

      GALA's annual benefit event honoring extraordinary leaders in the arts and philanthropy. This year we will recognize Orange is the New Black's Diane Guerrero for Artistic Excellence and Activism, Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School's founder Sonia Gutiérrez for Community and Education Leadership, and The Weissberg Foundation's Marvin Weissberg for Philanthropy in the Arts. Enjoy cocktails, a delicious dinner, innovative performances, silent and live auctions, and more! Proceeds from the event will support GALA's youth education programs, which include the Paso Nuevo program -an arts and academic enrichment program for Latino teens in the District of Columbia that was recognized with a 2012 National Arts and Humanities Youth Arts Program Award-, and our Student Matinee programs serving over 9,000 teachers and students in the DC Metropolitan Region.
