The Marquee Ball is Creative Alliance’s annual fundraiser gala that includes a VIP dinner, live and silent auctions, open studios, and a wild dance party that honors The Patterson’s history as a movie palace. The movie theme inspires party decor and costumes with eye-popping results! Baltimore’s wildest party supports Creative Alliance’s free youth education and community arts programs!
