Help honor the recipients of five awards for their significant contributions to Rock County, this year with the theme of The Golden Age of Hollywood. View the 2019 winners

We’ll roll out the red carpet for you and your guests, with Hollywood-style surprises all evening long. You’ll be immersed in glamour while enjoying a plated dinner, live music, dancing and a live auction. Dress in your favorite Hollywood-inspired attire … if you so desire.

Entertainment by DB Orchestra

Lively, loud, and local, the DB Orchestra is one of the hottest new bands in Madison. You’ll hear everything from timeless swinging hits from the 1930s and ’40s, to rock’n’roll classics, show tune medleys, and more.

With nearly 20 musicians, the hot horns, smooth saxes, and driving drums of the DB Orchestra will keep your head humming and toes tapping long after the Gala is over.
