About Union Station

Designed by John and Donald Parkinson, Union Station was the last grand railroad station built in the United States. Its unique combination of Art Deco and Spanish Colonial Revival styles make it one of the most recognizable buildings in Los Angeles. 

Metro purchased Union Station in 2011 and is now completing a master plan to transform the site to accommodate current and future transportation needs while maintaining the original building's historic character.

Prices and Sponsorship Levels

Reservations for the benefit begin at $500, including cocktails on the south patio, dinner in the main ticket concourse, and entertainment in the former Fred Harvey restaurant. Donors at higher levels will enjoy a cocktail reception in two private luxury railcars on the station’s tracks (see photos of the railcars, the Utah and the Kansas).
