Auction Donations

Donations to our live and silent auctions are crucial to the success of this annual event. We have an amazing auction committee and wonderful partners who are donating time and goods to ensure we create the best packages and raise as much support as possible for your historic, nonprofit theatres. Funds raised from this important event keep the theatres operating each year with enlightening performances, while also providing impactful education programs both at the theatres and in Central Texas classrooms.

We look for auction donations such as stays in private homes for vacation getaways, high end jewelry, original artwork, airline travel vouchers, artist performance time to pair with events, and more. Items are prominently displayed with recognition in both the auction catalogue and our season programs.


Thank You to Our 2019 Gala Donors!

Thank you for your generous and important support of the Anniversary Gala! Table and ticket partners, donations to our live and silent auctions, and catering and spirits partnerships are all crucial to the success of this annual event. All donations raised help the theatres’ continued preservation efforts, annual operations, film programs, and education programs. All the donations received enable Austinites to continue calling the Paramount their historic home for the arts. We could not do it without your support – thank you! See the Gala Program.
