The Marquee Ball is Creative Alliance's annual fundraiser gala that includes a VIP dinner, live and silent auctions, open studios, and wild dance party that honors The Patterson's past history as movie palace. The movie theme inspires party decor and attire of the partygoers with eye-popping results! Baltimore's wildest supports the Creative Alliance's free youth education and community arts programs, praised for their high quality by parents, teachers, and educating institutions alike. Annually, 3,500 Baltimore City elementary and middle school students learn new thinking and practical skills through art making.
