The Saugatuck Center for the Arts’ annual summer Benefit returns Saturday, June 17, with an evening celebrating the organization’s 15th Anniversary. Tickets are $180/person and can be purchased by calling 269-857-2399.


Honorary co-chairs Sandra & Travis Randolph and Monty Collins & Jerry Dark welcome guests for an evening of drinks, dinner, auctions, and live entertainment — all in support of the SCA’s cost free programming for children and adults. SCA Executive Director  Kristin Armstrong said she expects 300 guests, and calls the event an “SCA family reunion with a great mix of old and new friends. We love celebrating in the SCA rain garden with dinner and drinks — then heading into the theater for entertainment”.


This year’s dinner – created by The Gilmore Collection – features “elevated street fare” channelling the street truck food we all love with tastes from Cuba, Polynesia, Korea, and Greece.


The silent auction features dining and tasting experiences from Coppercraft Distillery, Virtue Cider, The Southerner, Salt of the Earth and others, plus jewelry, original art, tickets for hot concerts, and more. The live auction includes an exclusive wine pairing dinner at Wyncroft Winery, “must have” original art from Chicago artist Rubén Aguirre, hot summer sailing and dining experiences, a luxe trip to Cancun and more. And, guests will also get a sneak peek at the first Mason Street Warehouse production, the Tony award winning musical  “Memphis: The Musical”.


The event takes place at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts, 400 Culver Ave., Saugatuck. Space is limited; for more information or to buy tickets contact Kristin Armstrong at 269-857-2399 or visit
