The gala Friday evening event is the first opportunity for the general public to see what's being offered at this year's rug show. This special showing will give attendees the first chance to enjoy the full selection of rugs, jewelry, and crafts being offered at the show.

The evening serves as a fundraiser for the Program and includes hors d'oeuvres, entertainment, and an auction. Those attending the event receive 10% off the purchase of any rugs.

The culmination of the evening is the benefit auction. Although we sell many rugs at the show, all the sales proceeds go directly to the weavers, so this is a chance for the Program to bring in some funds to help underwrite the cost of staging the show.

Tickets for this special event are $30 for adults and $10 for children under age 12.
