Grand Center, Inc. produces two annual fundraising events and several friend raising events throughout the year. Each of the fundraising events salutes the arts and recognizes individuals and corporations who help make art happen in our community.
Founded by Grand Center, Inc. in 2003, the Visionary Awards is an annual recognition event celebrating the numerous contributions and achievements of women who work in or support the arts in St. Louis.
The Gala serves as Grand Center, Inc.’s largest annual fundraiser — providing critical support for our work in maintaining and promoting the Grand Center District as a nationally significant arts and entertainment destination.
“Since the rebirth of this wonderful historic district some 30 years ago, Grand Center has been an engine for economic growth in this region. This great institution has also helped our arts institutions prosper here by showcasing live concerts, theater, dance performances and special events all year round.”
