ON THE ROCKS is the Un-Gala: a new twist on a popular annual favorite. You are invited to join us on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center. From 6:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m., indulge in rock music through the ages while supporting our electrifying performing arts community.
The evening will feature Dayton-favorite Jeans ’n Classics in a unique collaboration with Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera, and Dayton Philharmonic that will rock the arts in a whole new way!
Enjoy food and drinks fit for a rock star, including a sumptuous dinner, open bar, and a spectacular silent auction featuring unique experiences and memorabilia. Dress as your favorite rocker—jeans with a suit jacket and a concert t-shirt, a twist on black tie with a hint of the 80s, or rock couture that’s fit for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Be comfortable and ready to dance in an evening that will rock the arts to 11!
