Join us for a one of a kind evening of fun, friendship, and festivity at the Center Stage gala this November. With our ace in host Kate Clinton, the ever-relevant and always funny comedienne, we’ll be seeing double in the Palm Springs debut of Will and Anthony Nunziata, the classically trained singing and comedy brother duo hailed by The Huffington Post as a “nearly impossible pairing of talent, stage presence, and charisma.”

And to make the occasion even more special, we’ll be honoring the late Palm Springs legend Dick Haskamp, with the Legacy Award for his indelible mark on our community. We expect nothing short of revelry in his honor, in true “Shirley Idaho” fashion. We’ll see you in the limelight at Center Stage 2018!




Thank You to Our 2018 Event Sponsors
