Triangle Community Center’s Visionary Gala: Let’s Have A Ball is being held from 6pm to 11pm on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s (2748 Boston Post Road, Darien, CT).
2Who can go to the Ball?

3How can I get tickets?
You can purchase tickets at the following link:
4What should I wear?
It’s a BALL! Dress to impress and wear whatever you feel amazing in. Dresses, suits, a combination of both or something completely different…this is a Gala so get as fancy as you like.
5How do I get there?
From I-95 North take exit 9 toward US-1/CT-106/Glenbrook Road. Turn left onto Seaside Avenue. Turn right onto E Main Street. Continue onto Boston Post Road. Just past the third traffic light, the destination will be on your right.

From I-95 South take exit 9 toward US-1/CT-106/Glenbrook Road. Turn left onto US-1N/E Main Street. Just past the fourth traffic light, the destination will be on your right.

6I am unable to attend but I love the work that TCC does. How can I support you?
We are so glad you asked! You can donate either by texting "tccpride" to phone number 56651 or if you would like to make a major gift, you can contact us at to arrange to participate in our live appeal.
7What is the Golden Paddle?
The Golden Paddle is like Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket. However, instead of chocolate, the holder of the Golden Paddle gets up to a $5,000 credit for an item in the live or silent auction! We offer chances to win the Golden Paddle in advance of the Ball through the event ticket link as well as during the Ball cocktail hour. Each chance is $100, and we only sell 100 chances so your odds of winning are way better than winning the lottery, and for a great cause!
8Can I bid on silent auction items without attending?
You sure can! To take part in our silent auction, you’ll need to register with ClickBid, our auction platform. You can do that by visiting the following link: Once you register for your ClickBid account, you’ll need to enter your credit card information. You won’t be charged unless you are the winning bidder of an item. The auction opens on October 12, a week before the Ball, so you can preview all the great stuff we are offering! Bidding will open October 14 and the auction will close at 11:59 pm on October 21.
