The Tinker Ball

Saturday, February 3rd, 2024 | Portland Art Museum | 1219 SW Park Ave

Our 2024 Gala returns to The Portland Art Museum! We’ll jump on the wind’s back and fly to Neverland for this whimsical and lavish affair. With dinner, dancing, and childlike fun, nothing can stop us from having the most fantastical Gala yet. Every year our Gala raises critical funds to provide world-class ballet performances, classical ballet instruction, and dance-focused community education programs across our region. We hope you’ll dream, wish, and join us for this magical event.
