Crystal balls are optional at Featherstone Center for the Arts’ upcoming gala, Looking Into the Future. But you could get your palm read or check out the belly dancers.

The big event is on Monday, July 7, at 6:30 p.m. at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs. Trips, parties, experiences, services and more will be up for grabs during the silent auction. John Alaimo provides the music and wine, beer and desserts will be served, along with a raw bar.

Judy and Bill McConnell will be honored during the gala for their years of service and support. The event is a fundraiser for the center and helps support its operating expenses.

Tickets are $175 per person. For more information, call 508-693-1850 or visit
