The Ross Ragland Theater's 13th Annual

Red Tie Romp 2.18.2017

You likely know that this fundraiser is vital in helping us raise money for our ever-expanding Education and Outreach programs.  The Ross Ragland is now serving 20,000 children throughout the Basin, providing high quality performing arts and educational experiences through the following programs:

  • Youth StARTS Program (provides much needed arts education programming to over 2500 County elementary students)
  • The Young Audience Matinee Series (provides educational programs to Basin schools)
  • Three Youth Summer Camps (offers a complete immersion into the world of the arts)
  • The Access Program (allows for reduced ticket pricing for low-income youth and families)


  • Workshops, theater classes, master classes, pre-concert lectures and MORE

But did you know that the Ross Ragland was one of the first non-profit entities in the Basin to hold a dinner/auction fundraiser, 13 years ago?  This means we've had the longest to perfect the process!  The result is a fun and sophisticated evening that funds our incredibly worthy programs! 

Tickets go on sale in November 2016 for the 2017 event.  If you would like to be added to a waiting list for a FULL TABLE now, call Crystal at 541.884.0651 x 123
