Step Up Soirée – A Virtual Gala

Saturday, June 13 | 7:00 pm


Each year, Flushing Town Hall hosts its annual gala to raise funds and celebrate our mission of bringing people together through global arts. While the world has changed, our mission has not. We remain committed to bringing people together–even in the virtual world–by presenting arts and cultural traditions from around the globe. This year’s reenvisioned virtual gala, the Step Up Soirée, will be streamed live at or Facebook and YouTube on Saturday, June 13 at 7:00 pm, and will be open to the public. Partake in this special event from home, dressed in your favorite gown, tux, or pajamas—festive attire is encouraged! Join us for entertainment and a salute to our medical heroes. Have the arts brought you comfort during this time? Funds raised support our mission of bringing people together through global arts. We depend greatly on funds raised from the gala each year and hope you will join our efforts with one of the sponsor levels below. Thank you to our past and present gala supporters.
