Join us in celebration of DC youth and Sitar Arts Center reaching The Next Stage!

Sitar Arts Center’s Annual Benefit Gala will feature inspiring performances, a seated dinner, and an online silent auction in the stunning Grand Ballroom at The Mayflower Hotel.

The Next Stage Gala raises essential funds for equitable and inclusive arts education and career training for DC’s children, teens, and young adults. Sitar Arts Center is a safe space and nurturing community for youth to learn and build skills in the arts. Sitar’s high-impact programs prioritize equity, affordability, and mobility by removing financial and cultural barriers to afterschool/summer opportunities and workforce training. Year after year, at least 80% of our 900 students come from families with low-income, and 84% of our students identify as Black, Hispanic, Latinx, or Multi-racial.
