One of the premier cultural events of 2021, The Wittliff Collections Festival Gala at ACL Live will feature a 50thanniversary performance by the legendary Ray Benson as well as live and silent auctions with rare treasures from the Lonesome Dove miniseries and many other auction items. We’re also planning special after-party appearance by a surprise artist. 

The Wittliff Collections Festival Gala will be held at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater (ACL Live), a state-of-the-art live music venue in downtown Austin that hosts approximately 100 concerts a year. It serves as the permanent home for the taping of the acclaimed KLRU-TV/PBS series Austin City Limits, the longest-running music series in American television history. Nestled next to the W Austin Hotel & Residences, ACL Live is the city’s premier destination for live performances and seated-dinner fundraising galas.

A limited number of tables, VIP sponsorships, and individual tickets are available. For information, contact Senior Director of Development Ramona Kelly at 512-245-5154 or
