Grand Center Inc. hosted its largest annual fundraiser on September 13 at The Big Top on Washington Avenue. This magical evening honored local philanthropists Jerry and Mary Beth Daniels. The 2019 gala celebrated the arts district and is the main source of the nonprofit’s budget. Proceeds help support such things as the nonprofit’s marketing efforts and the maintenance of public spaces. This year we added a unique design element by cascading dozens of white umbrellas at the center of The Big Top. The lighting design reflected off the white umbrellas to create a colorful, chandelier presence for the gala.
