As long as your page design is vertically centered on the page you  
might get away with:

\title{Put the Title Here}
% here's the page
\mbox{}% to get into horizontal mode
Centered Info
% end of page
Some more text on the next page.

and there are probably much less dirty ways of doing it. Note:  
without that \mbox{} the vertical glue would disappear at the top of  
the page.

Good Luck,
