Historic Richmond’s Third Annual Celebrate the City Gala – A Night on Grace Street!
The spotlight was on the revitalization of Richmond’s historic Downtown commercial corridors at Historic Richmond’s third annual Celebrate the City Gala | A Night on Grace Street. On Saturday, October 27, 2018, guests dined and danced on the stage of the historic Carpenter Theatre at the Dominion Energy Center and raised funds for Historic Richmond’s mission-based activities, including educational programs and future rehabilitation, revitalization and preservation efforts in historic neighborhoods and districts.
The atmospheric theatre’s cerulean skies, drifting clouds and twinkling stars illuminated the stage as guests enjoyed a three course dinner curated by noted Richmond Chef Carlos Silva and grooved to the swinging beats of Big Ray and the Kool Kats! Guests supported Historic Richmond’s mission to preserve, protect and promote Richmond’s historic built environment through a creative raise the paddle “unauction.”
Attendees celebrated Historic Richmond’s significant efforts over many decades to save the historic commercial, cultural, and civic structures of Broad and Grace Streets. Historic Richmond’s work with these structures, most notably Monumental Church, the National Theatre, Old City Hall and the Broad Street Old & Historic District, “set the stage” for today’s revitalization of Downtown Richmond.
Founded in 1935, Historic Richmond is the only non-profit solely dedicated to protecting and enhancing Richmond’s irreplaceable historic built environment. Historic Richmond has been instrumental in saving hundreds of historic structures, was a leader in the designation of Richmond’s first Old & Historic District in Church Hill, and from its earliest efforts has pioneered the concept of rehabilitating old buildings.
