Tickets on Sale Now!

Community members and supporters of the arts are invited to attend one of the most highly anticipated social events on the Lied Center calendar hosted by the Friends of Lied – the 13th biennial “Fire and Ice” Gala. Enjoy dinner, live music, dancing, and an auction and raffle at the Lied Center for Performing Arts on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016 at 6 p.m. in the name of a very worthy cause – giving all Nebraskans access to world-class performing arts. Tickets are available now at www.liedcenter.org/event/FOLGALA.

The evening’s events will take place throughout the Lied Center including the 30’ x 70’ proscenium main stage where guests will enjoy a gourmet 3-course dinner catered by Hap Abraham Catering, cocktails by Meier’s Cork ‘n Bottle, and dancing and live entertainment by Musivo Live from Kansas City. Black tie is optional.

The Friends of Lied is a group of volunteers who support the Lied Center in all capacities from on-stage programming, free tickets for underserved children and adults and educational outreach. They hold the biennial Gala every other winter. The event centers on fundraising efforts for the Lied Center and includes a silent auction and raffle of various donated items. This year the raffle features an all-inclusive week-long stay at a spa resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico; a weekend getaway in Colorado; and stunning fine jewelry from Borsheims. Raffle tickets for the event are currently on sale for $10 and can be purchased from Friends of Lied board members or at the event.

For the first time ever, the Friends of Lied will be accepting Gala reservations online at www.liedcenter.org/event/FOLGALA. Tickets can be purchased individually or as part of a table package. The silent auction featuring performance and event tickets, autographed Husker memorabilia, electronics and more will be facilitated online via smartphone or iPad using Qtego auction technology. The Friends of Lied will have volunteers on site to assist with the auction process. Those unable to attend the Gala are also invited to bid on auction items online.
