Join us under the stars for a night celebrating the ARTS!

LIVE AUCTION with your chance to bid on a night in NYC
at the Roosevelt Hotel with 3rd row center orchestra tickets for two to Hamilton! 

Saturday, November 4, 7:30 to 11:00pm


I hope you can join us for our major annual fundraising evening at the HCA on Saturday, November 4. It’s a get-together that has helped us provide more than 12,000 people in Hopkinton and its surrounding towns with affordable classes, concerts, workshops and other programming in 2017 alone. Since we opened our new center in 2015, those who’ve benefited range from toddlers and teens to working parents and the elderly!

We’re calling this year’s evening at the HCA “The Starry Night.” The HCA’s performance space and gallery will be transformed to evoke the romance and magic of being under the stars in Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting. From 7:30 to 11 p.m., you will enjoy great food, a variety of live music (from classical to rock), an open bar and terrific company – people like you who have appreciated the HCA firsthand or through the experiences of a family member or friend. Cocktail attire is requested.
Tickets are $100, and for that you will get a memorable evening, as well as the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped people in your community grow creatively through the arts. Your ticket includes an open bar, wonderful hors d’ oeuvres from Peppers Catering, a classical music concert during cocktails, party music from the rock band J.P. and Friends (sure to keep you dancing all night), raffles featuring some wonderful gifts (a fire pit, wine and cheese party, sculpture and other prizes) and a live auction with an incredible grand prize: tickets for two to see “Hamilton” on Broadway and a night at the nearby Roosevelt Hotel.
