PRYAF's Dining with the Arts Gala Goes Virtual on 10/3!

9th Annual Dining with the Arts Gala Brings the Magic of Youth Arts to a Virtual Stage

Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation asks the community to stand up in support of free arts education for all area youth

For Immediate Release – (Paso Robles, CA) One of the most unique fundraisers in San Luis Obispo County, Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation (PRYAF’s) 9th Annual Dining with the Arts Gala returns 10/3/20, as a virtual event.

Guests say the Dining with the Arts Gala is like nothing they have ever attended. It weaves Art, Dance, Music, Theater, and an incredible dining experience together for one spectacular night only. Th
is year’s Virtual Gala promises the same magic and excitement guests love but in a new format which allows them to participate from the comfort of their homes.

The funds raised are even more crucial in 2020, for the health of PRYAF’s no-cost Visual and Performing Arts Program, benefitting students (5-18 from across SLO County). The Pandemic posed great challenges for PRYAF and for this year’s Gala. With many community fundraisers and grants cancelled, the Youth Arts Team got creative. The Virtual Gala came to life and promises surprise performances, Live, Silent and Cake Auctions, plus stories like only PRYAF can share them.

Although this event will be FREE, there are many ways you can participate from your home or safely gather a small group of friends. Dressing up is optional! Reserve a Party Basket for 2 or 4 people, 
with a gift certificate to Jeffry’s Wine Country BBQ, local wine and treats to be delivered to your door. Register in advance to get all the updates! The event will be conducted online so registrants will participate on their computer, iPad, or smartphone device. A link to the live broadcast will be sent to all registrants before the event. Please register by October 1st if possible, at

The benefits of the arts are so important to the development of our local youth. Please help keep community-funded youth arts education (Music, Dance, Theater, Art and Creative Enrichment) alive for all area students. Please join emcee and Board President, Leo Castillo and Live Auctioneer, Cody Dawson for a celebration of all we love about youth arts on 10/3!
