Join us for RPEC’s biggest event of the year, the Annual Dinner & Auction! The event will take place at the Crowne Plaza Richmond Downtown (555 E Canal St) on November 8th at 5:30pm. We’ll begin the evening with cocktails and bidding on fantastic items in the silent auction.
Then we’ll move on to a delicious dinner and the always exciting live auction, featuring incredible vacation getaways, entertainment packages, opportunities to meet with famous Richmonders, gourmet meals, and much more. It will truly be an unforgettable evening!
This is the Peace Center’s most important fundraiser of the year, by far, and its success is instrumental in ensuring the future work of the Peace Center. Without your support, our essential programming within the Richmond area would not be possible. Every ticket sold and item bid on will directly support our work towards fostering peace and social justice in our community. So, come out and enjoy a fun, entertaining evening and support RPEC at the same time!
