Schuster Performing Arts Center Wintergarden
1 West Second Street, Dayton OH 45402

Support Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm by attending our annual fundraiser, Aullwood én Blanc! Aullwood én Blanc is an evening of extraordinary music, performance and cuisine held in downtown Dayton. Friends of Aullwood Board of Trustees hosts this annual event to raise funds to support Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm's environmental educational programs which serve over 50,000 students each year from 13 local counties. 

Our second annual Aullwood én Blanc event will commence with participants arriving all in white attire at this year's venue, the exquisite Schuster Performing Arts Center Wintergarden. The evening will proceed with a delicious gourmet meal, inspiring performances from the youth in our community, and music from Chicago’s Hey Jimmy - a truly amazing dance band - all in the delightful ambiance of the Schuster Center's Wintergarden. Guests will be able to show off their white ensembles, enjoy an exciting evening with friends and dance the night away while toasting Aullwood! Join us in this celebration of our mission to teach, lead, and inspire children and adults to preserve, protect, and enjoy nature, farming and the environment that we love. All proceeds from Aullwood én Blanc will support environmental education programs at Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm. 

ALL WHITE ATTIRE IS REQUIRED. You can dress fun and casual, or elegant and formal. As long as your wardrobe is all white for Aullwood én Blanc, then you're ready to shine! Looking for ideas on what to wear? Try the Aullwood én Blanc Pinterest page!
