tOpening Night at The Dali Museum & Mahaffey Theate

Matt Skallerud's insight:

The evening networking begins at The Dali Museum, the largest collection of the surrealist painter's works outside of his native Spain. Attendees will have a chance to view the collection and enjoy cocktails and light hors d'oeuvres before moving to the neighboring Mahaffey Theater, the city's waterfront performing arts venue, for more food and drinks plus live music.

 

Attendees of this year's fundraising event to benefit the IGLTA Foundation are in for a special treat. Join us for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres alongside the astonishing collection of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly’s unique glasswork. The Chihuly Collection is the first installation of his art in a building designed specifically for that purpose. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Foundation's efforts to inspire the next generation of LGBTQ travel professionals through education, research and leadership development.
