The Hugo House Gala

Dress your best and join us for an elegant evening at Sodo Park for our Hugo House annual gala fundraiser. Your support at this annual event helps award scholarships to writers, increasing the accessibility of our programs, bring authors from near and far to our classrooms and theater, grant fellowships to emerging talents, and provide a welcoming and open space for anyone who loves books or has the drive to write.

This year's fundraising event will include a cocktail hour, catered dinner, dessert, a "raise the paddle" auction, and keynote address by Executive Director Diana Delgado—to name a few! We invite you to celebrate writing the next chapter with us.

Please note: Tickets must be purchased before October 16th, 2023 to attend the gala.
