The popular ladies only event, Center Place’s 24th Annual Wild Dame Night will take place on Saturday, February 21, beginning at 6 p.m. at Center Place located at 619 Vonderburg Dr. in Brandon. For over two decades, Center Place’s Wild Dame Night has been a highly anticipated event filled with fun and entertainment with proceeds helping to keep the arts, especially children’s programming, alive in the greater Brandon area.

The theme for the 24th Annual Wild Dame Night is “The Dames of the Wild West.” Entertainment is provided by Stages Productions.

“Instead of our usual theater presentation, Stages Productions will be doing a Country Music Revue. We are looking forward to it,” said Executive Director for Center Place said, Dawn Galia. “We will also have the dance floor open for line dancing. The ladies will receive a sit down dinner, Country Music Revue, wine and soda bar, decadent dessert room, and door prizes at the end of the evening. We sell out very quickly for this event, and seats are limited.”

Individual tickets are $60 and are on sale now at Center Place. Individuals or businesses can make a tremendous impact and statement in support of the arts by becoming a table sponsor for $800.

“This is one of our largest fundraising events of the year. All of the funds from Wild Dame Night go to our children’s programming at Center Place. We are able to offer summer art camps, art scholarships, a children’s art reception and many other things for our children at Center Place,” said Galia.

Center Place, a registered non-profit, was established in 1976. Its members are dedicated to the promotion of the fine arts and civic involvement. Center Place offers cultural enrichment through a variety of programs including monthly exhibitions of fine, original art; art education for both children and adults; and the performing arts.
