Valet parking will be available (cost is $10 per car). From I-235, take exit 8A. Then, take the 3rdStreet exit (get in far right lane). Valet parking will be located on the east side between Hy-Vee Hall and Wells Fargo Arena. You can also self park in the Iowa Events Center lots on either side of Crocker Street. If you tell the parking attendant you are attending the Cardinal & Gold Gala, there will not be a cost to park.
The silent auction starts when the doors open! Sip on your beverage of choice, enjoy delicious food, and bid on one-of-a-kind auction items.
Food stations (featuring entrees and sides) will open at 6:00 p.m. and close at 8:30 p.m. Because of high attendance, we strongly encourage you to eat early to avoid long lines. Please note that we will begin our program at 8:00 p.m. and will ask you to take a seat at this time.
