In Loving Memory of Diana Gerding

This gala will be held in celebration of the life of Diana Gerding who, along with her husband Bob Gerding, was one of the most influential people in the history of Portland Center Stage. As a board member, Diana not only offered her sage counsel to the theater, she also demonstrated deep personal commitment to our artists and staff, and she was beloved by all in return. We look forward to honoring her on this special evening.

Make the night even more special — order dinner in!

Our friends at Vibrant Table have created a delicious, three-course meal for $55 per person, which they will deliver to homes within 25 miles of Portland or have available for pick up. Every order will include a complimentary bottle of wine from Winderlea Vineyard and Winery per household. Thank you for joining us in supporting local businesses!
