The annual GRYP Gala, G!G!, has a tradition of being a fun and inviting social gathering of GRYP members, their guests, and overall contributors to GRYP’s mission in the Greater Reading community.

For 2018, G!G! will return to Downtown Reading and be housed in the architecturally rich Santander Performing Arts Center with its soaring ceilings framed in masterful molding, grand staircase, and decades of history.  Tell your friends and mark your calendars for “3-3”!  We will see you in March 2018.

Check back in January when we will provide additional information regarding this signature event including when you can secure your tickets.  Sponsorships will be available!
