PALM HARBOR – The Centre of Palm Harbor will host the inaugural fundraiser, Harbor Nights, featuring jazz music and local artists on April 27, 6:30 to 11 p.m., at 1500 16th St.
The event will include a gallery of seven artists of various media, jazz band, butler-served hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar and silent auction in a cocktail-party environment.
Along with raising funds, Harbor Nights will promote the Centre as a rentable space suitable for upscale functions.
“It is our intention to highlight the banquet room as a venue that can be used for cocktail parties, wedding receptions and anything in between,” said events manager Trish Harrison. “The room will not look like it looks when you come to a meeting. It will definitely be transformed.”
Tickets are $35 and include a complimentary drink. Harrison said that staff at The Centre has decided to focus on a single, major event to raise money for programming instead of smaller efforts throughout the year.
