The Dunes Center invites you to support educational programming for thousands of Central Coast students and residents by tuning in to our first virtual fundraiser! The Dunes Center Gala and Auction is an annual tradition we know and love, but unfortunately, we had to pivot and change our plans for this year. The Dunes Center will be hosting an epic Battle of the Chefs and Silent Auction. The competition will showcase three incredibly talented local chefs in an epic battle for all the glory!

This virtual event is free for everyone looking for a little entertainment and fun to kick off the New Year! Tune in on YouTube on Saturday, January 30, 2021, at 4:30 PM for a fun-filled hour of cooking and competition!

The auction will open Saturday, January 23rd at 8:00 AM. At 8:00 PM on Sunday, January 31, 2021, the highest bidders win!  Stay up to date on event updates by following us on Facebook and Instagram and/or checking this page!
