The evening begins with cocktails and bidding in the wonderful silent auction. Then we’ll move on to a delicious dinner followed by a fun live auction featuring vacation getaways, entertainment packages, opportunities to meet with noted Richmonders, gourmet meals, and more. Don’t miss it!
The Auction is the Peace Center’s most important fundraiser of the year. Its success ensures the future work of the Peace Center. Every ticket sold and item bid on directly supports our work building peace and social justice in our community.
If you are coming with friends and wish to sit with them, e-mail Beth Sparks at email@example.com. We will do our best to seat you together.
Our supporters contribute some amazing items to the auction. From hand-crafted jewelry to incredible artwork, relaxing massages to home cooked meals, there is something for everyone. Between now and November 5, we will post some of our most exciting items. Check for updates and plan your bidding!

Visit With Paul di Pasquale in His Studio
Have you ever wondered what it’s like inside the studio of a sculptor? Come to Paul DiPasquale’s studio near Rocketts Landing! Paul di Pasquale, who created the Arthur Ashe Monument, is a renowned sculptor who produces public sculpture about history and the people who made it. The Washington Post wrote that “placing this statue of Arthur Ashe on Historic Monument Avenue was one of the most important things to happen in Virginia in the entire 20th century.” Other recent public sculptures include the Martin Luther King Bronze Monument for the King Foundation in Hopewell and Bronze busts of Oliver Hill at the Virginia Historical Society, the Richmond Convention Center, and the Black History Museum. Come see where the work is done and hear from Paul at his studio on December 3, 2017, from 3pm – 4:30pm. Refreshments will be served.
