2019 Giving Gala & Silent Auction

There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season than to attend AIGA Charlotte’s second annual, Giving Gala. On December 11, we invite you to join us at 8.2.0 for a festive evening of heavy hors d’oeuvres, tasty libations, merry mingling, and incredible silent auction items that can be yours regardless of if you’ve been naughty or nice.
