What: Ebby Halliday & Senator Florence Shapiro invite you to dine and dance the night away at Plano Symphony Orchestra’s 2012 Valentine Gala with Limelight, an Emerald City band and with guest appearance by Broadway star James Moye. Silent and live auctions items include a gourmet dinner for 20, a hand crafted wine cabinet, fabulous vacation trips, sports memorabilia, hand crafted jewelry, and much more.

Why: With only 30% of the Symphony’s funding coming from concert ticket sales, the Valentine Gala is PSOs signature fundraising event of the year. Proceeds help fund the PSO’s education programs and, due to school district budget cuts, the PSO is seeking increased community support to continue these programs.

Where: Marriott at Legacy Town Center in the Trinity Ballroom, 7120 Dallas Parkway, Plano, TX 75024

Tickets: To make reservations, call the Plano Symphony Orchestra Ticket Office at 972-473-7262 or visit Reservations are $130.00 per person.

The buyer donated it back to be auctioned again. Since the bidding went high with two interested parties, James agreed to make a second chair. So – three bids & two chairs later, the Plano Symphony raised $20,000. An amazing story! James Muns wood-working piece to be auctioned at the 2012 Gala is a magnificent hand-crafted wine cabinet – a true work of art, not just furniture.
