2022 Summer Benefit

Benefiting the artistic programs of the LPCA

2022 Summer Benefit

This annual event ensures the LPCA's ability to present and foster arts programs that inspire, enrich, educate and entertain people of all ages.


We've Moved Dinner Outdoors!
After hearing from many that it's most comfortable to gather outside this summer, we rented a tent! We hope you'll enjoy an entire evening with us in the fresh air.

This year's benefit includes cocktails and dinner outdoors featuring a live auction and a preview performance by The Hillbenders.

The LPCA Spotlight Award will be presented to Parmelee Tolkan for her many years of dedication to both the LPCA and the Adirondack arts community.

Following dinner, join us for the a special performance by The Hillbenders of WhoGrass! - opening the 2022 Open Sky Arts Festival.

Attendees are encouraged to wear their white summer attire (not white tie) in a nod to the Dîner en Blanc™ movement, where friends gather for an elegant, pop-up picnic. We were inspired by the beauty of these events, and imagined how striking dinner will be against an Adirondack summer evening. White attire is suggested but not necessary! Come in whatever makes you feel comfortable. We can't wait to gather together for this special evening of great food, the magic of Adirondack summer weather, and an unforgettable outdoor concert!

Proceeds from the evening benefit the arts and education programs of the LPCA.
