Thank you for making String Fling 2015 a success!!

Guests of the Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough table show off their Fantastical Friends puppets they made before dinner.

String Fling, the Center’s annual fundraising gala, is a unique, fun, puppet-filled evening for a great cause. You’ll get up close and personal with our puppets and puppeteers, bid on some amazing auction items, and enjoy an open bar followed by a delicious seated dinner, short puppetry performances, live auction, and more! This past year, through generous and charitable support from the many sponsors and patrons, the Center for Puppery Arts was able to provide nearly 70,000 reduced-price or free admissions to schools and youth-serving organizations.
