Evening at Duke’s Place

Don’t miss the 2017 Evening at Duke’s Place Gala!

Dukes Place - Save The Date

On September 30th The Ellington Fund hosted the first annual Evening at Duke’s Place – a gala to benefit the Duke Ellington School of the Arts.  This elegant evening of food, music and dancing brought over 400 people together in support of arts education and raised significant funds to help us provide Ellington’s 534 students with enriching learning experiences. Ellington vocal music students and the school’s Virtuosi string quartet performed and impressed our guests with their talent and professionalism. Guests were on the dance floor all evening long, dancing to music provided by the Marquise band, as well as a special performance by El DeBarge.
