The annual gala honored the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose generosity made it possible for Circus Flora to have a year-round Big Top home in Grande Center. Circus Flora supports community outreach programs year-round including “Clowns on Call” and “Share the Circus” as well as a Peanut Free Preview and a Sensory Friendly Performance. This year’s Flora Dora gala was chaired by Dr. Barry and Alissa Duel.
