Our 13th annual Evening of Stars gala benefiting SCERA’s Endowment for the Arts and presentation of The Star Awards.


The Star Awards will be hosted by NICEA DEGERING of ABC4’s “Good Things Utah.”

OUR 2018 THEME:  “Fiesta!”

Our 13th annual AN EVENING OF STARS is a black tie event featuring fine cuisine from UVU Culinary Arts, live entertainment and presentation of The Star Awards, a tradition of honoring and celebrating those who have made a significant impact on the arts and whose passion and dedication has enriched the citizens and communities of the state of Utah.

The prestigious event is held in conjunction with a benefit arts gala for SCERA’s charitable Endowment for the Arts, including silent and live auctions with 100% of the proceeds benefiting our non-profit arts organization.  And with our 2018 theme FIESTA, you’ll enjoy unique themed decor, a themed photo op and free digital photo, and costumed characters!

There are nine awards being given, with categories including Lifetime Achievement, Theatre, Visual Arts, Music, Dance, Friend of the Arts, Advocate of the Arts, Volunteer, and The 2018 Star Award. A professional video tribute on each honoree will be shown that evening.


Your reservation will be under your name at the event. No tickets will be printed or mailed.

This event features a silent auction with a large variety of themed baskets and larger items that are placed in our live auction. 100% of the money raised from the gala auction support SCERA’s non-profit charitable Endowment for the Arts and is our biggest and most critical fundraiser of the year.  We are always in need of items or services, large and small, to be used in the auctions.  If you would be willing to help gather items, would like to donate a finished basket or have individual items or services you’d like to donate, please contact April Berlin at 801-225-ARTS ext. 1011 or april@scera.org.  High quality, unique “handcrafted” items are also a big hit!  We can also use any gently used baskets or cool containers you might have laying around your home or business. Donations will be recognized on printed auctions sheets and by our auctioneer. You are welcome to include a business card or brochure with your donation.
