Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual Gala?

A virtual gala is a fundraising event where everyone participates through the internet instead of in person. PAA’s Stars in Arts Gala will have one-hour of live-streamed and pre-recorded video content that ticket holders can view from home, including student performances and interviews, a live auction, and messages from PAA Staff and board members. The Silent Auction portion of the Gala will be just like years past, with a website that makes it easy to bid on the items you like.


Will the Gala be interactive?

Parts of it will be! The silent auction opens Tuesday, October 20th at 5:00 PM and just like in past years, the silent auction is entirely online and can be accessed easily by your mobile device or computer. A link will be emailed to the ticket holder once the silent auction opens. You can purchase your tickets here. The silent auction closes at 9:00 PM, Saturday, October 24th.

The live portion of the Gala evening is from 7:00 – 8:00 PM on Saturday, October 24th and will also be online. Ticket holders will be sent a link that will prompt you to log in. Once logged in you will be able to watch the Gala event.

During this hour we will have live video streaming from our evening’s emcee as well as pre-recorded video segments from our students and staff.

The interactive part of the evening will come in the form of our live auction. We have some REALLY exciting items lined up for our live auction and you will be able to bid on them using your mobile device or computer.


How do I bid during the live auction?

On the screen during the Gala programming you will see a QR code. Open your smartphone’s camera and hold it so the QR code is positioned on your phone’s screen. Your phone should prompt you to open a web browser which will take you directly to the mobile site for the PAA Gala. Once logged in you’ll see the button to “Bid Now” where you can enter your bid. Alternately, you can get to the Gala site by entering the url into your phone’s browser.


How do I bid during the silent auction?

The website for the silent auction is very easy to use! Just log in with your ticket holder email address, click on the item you want to bid on, enter your bid, and submit. You’ll be notified by text and/or email when you are outbid or when you are the winner.


Do I need to dress up?

Since you’ll be in your home, you can dress however you feel most comfortable. In the past, the Stars in Arts Gala has been a black tie event, so our presenters plan to continue the tradition, but they may be wearing slippers instead of dress shoes 😉

If you do decide to dress up, we’d love to see your amazing ensemble! Post your photos to your favorite social media account and tag them with #starsinartsgala. We’d love to include them in our wrap up eNewsletter! Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.


Can kids attend the Gala?

This year, since the Stars in Arts Gala is online, we are encouraging families to attend together! Enjoy a meal with each other then turn on the Gala! A Family pack of tickets is for 4 people and includes themed drinks (Shirley Temple or sparkling cider for the kids!) as well as a special version of our printed Gala program that includes activities the kids can complete during the 60 minutes of live programming. Kids will stay busy with PAA and 1920’s themed word searches, coloring pages, and bingo!
The live programming will include many familiar faces for PAA students, Dr. Jim and Ms. Melanie will be on screen along with PAA student alumni and current students. Finally, (and possibly most importantly) kids will be able to cast their vote for which crazy stunt they want to see Dr. Jim do at the end of the Gala evening! More details on that coming soon… Get your family pack of tickets today!

How do I watch the Gala?

The night of the Gala, Saturday, October 24th, ticket holders will be emailed a link to the live Gala programming where you can watch our live presenters. You will be able to watch on any device with a screen and a web browser that is connected to the internet.
Since the Gala will provide opportunities for interaction through the use of your smart phone, we suggest using a second screen to watch the Gala, like a television.
Here are some tips on how to watch the Gala on your television:
  • Smart TV
    A lot of modern TVs connect to the internet and have built in web browsers. If you have a TV with these capabilities then all you need to do is open the browser, type in the Gala URL, and log in to watch the PAA Gala on your television.
If your TV does not connect to the internet, or doesn’t have a web browser then here are some alternate solutions:
  • FireStick
    If you have an Amazon Firestick, you can install a web browser app such as FireFox or Amazon Silk.
  • Gaming Console
    If you have an Xbox or PlayStation you can use the web browser functionality to navigate to the Gala url.
  • Apple TV/Roku/Chromecast
    Unfortunately these devices do not include a web browser. They do have the ability to stream content from a computer or phone to your television, so you can set up a computer to stream the Gala to the TV screen, keeping your mobile device free to interact with Gala activities.

Yes! Paper programs will be mailed to ticket holders and will arrive in mailboxes the week of the Gala (October 19-24).
