On September 24, 2022, gather a table of friends, family, or co-workers to dine at the beautiful Thomasville Center for the Arts.

Dinner on the Bricks for The Vashti Center is a colorful evening that brings people together for food, music, and fun.

Tables of eight start at just $300 each for patrons, with all proceeds benefitting the children. The table, white linen tablecloth and chairs are provided, everything else is up to the patron. We highly encourage you to get creative with the table decor and let your appetites decide whether you bring your own dinner or hire a caterer.
