Last year’s Hollywood Ball raised more than $100,000 and The Center looks forward to exceeding that number in 2019! Community support is key for The Center for the Arts during this exciting time of transformation as they usher in an innovative era of art and performance at The New Center and create a powerful new cultural destination in Nevada County.
