Please join us for Avant Garden, a fundraising event designed to deepen the power of art to transform lives. For our 14th annual event (2019), GoggleWorks is celebrating unique, artistic freedom by foregoing our traditional sit-down gala format for a more inventive approach, including:

Gourmet Food Pop-Up Stations
Musical Acts throughout the Galleries
Silent & Live Auctions, including Wearable Art
Craft Cocktails, Local Beer, and Wine
Dessert Station by Sweet Street
Check-in begins at 5:30; Creative Cocktail Attire

Avant Garden will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 5:30-8:30pm.


Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors
