Hartnell presents its annual Gala in support of the arts


SALINAS, Calif. – Hartnell Community College District and the Hartnell College Foundation present the 11th Annual Gala for the Arts this Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.  The feast will be at the newly opened STEM Center Building (S) at 411 Central Avenue in Salinas, CA.


This year’s theme is Black and White and all are encouraged to dress to impress!  This fabulous end of year celebration has become a popular start to the Holiday Season, while celebrating the love for the arts in our community.


The Gala features a scrumptious strolling dinner by Michael's Catering, cocktails by Dubbers, a fantastic silent auction, and an outstanding musical performance of Nice Work If You Can Get It at Western Stage in the Mainstage Theater. This Tony Award winning musical comedy features the Gershwin brothers’ most famous hits.
