2018 Giving Gala + Silent Auction

There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season than to attend AIGA Charlotte’s first annual, Giving Gala. On December 12, 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.

This is the perfect opportunity to get into the holiday spirit and give back to the Charlotte creative community—with all proceeds from this event benefitting the Design Continuum Fund.
