Update 04/14/04: It was a rather rainy party but wonderful nevertheless, with great food, entertainments, awesome decorations, and pretty umbrellas. Thanks to all that came out to support the Center! Some pics from the party can be viewed right now at our Facebook page, the rest of the pics will be up through a link from our website soon...
ANCA, the Arne Nixon Center Advocates, invites everyone to its eighth annual Secret Garden Party, on Sunday, April 11th, from 3 to 5 p.m. There will be no cyclones, flying monkeys, or apple-throwing trees, but you might see a Wicked Witch in this spacious north Fresno garden. The party will feature songs from “Wicked,” the hit Broadway musical, and other Ozzy surprises. The exact location of the garden party will be revealed to underwriters and ticket holders upon registration.
Underwriters are needed; they will receive tickets to the party and acknowledgements in promotional materials. The $1,000 Sponsor fee includes up to eight tickets; Patrons, for a $500 fee, get up to six tickets; Contributors, for $250, receive up to four tickets. Individual tickets are also available for $50. The garden party is ANCA's major annual fundraising event; all profits benefit the Arne Nixon Center, this year helping to support the Center’s programs and collections, including the national Oz conference planned for May 14-16, 2010.
