Gala galore


It is a spectacular evening and a really
good time. Our students are so fantastic and this is so helpful to them. The scholarships that we raise for the ArtsGala help us support our extremely talented students with the gift of time
which is the most valuable thing we can give them. Time when they don’t have to
work when they don’t have to worry about
excessive amounts of loans. Time when they can concentrate on owning their
craft. I got the ArtsGala scholarship
and it helped me so I only had to work one job instead of three now but that’s
really great. I’ve received an ArtsGala scholarship the last two years it means a great deal to
me I am paying for my college education of my own so being able to have any help
and support it was absolutely wonderful. It’s one of the finest arts related
events in our community that we’ve raised over 2.7 million dollars in the
ArtsGala and probably will eclipse three million here shortly. I don’t paint
quite like other people do I’m a little more loose with my strokes so people get
to see how I go about doing things. It truly is unique to be able to bring
the entire breadth of the Fine and Performing Arts together so that patrons can
experience in one evening what would probably take years in any other
situation. It’s always new entertainment in the
dining rooms new productions on the stage new songs in the concert hall it’s
fresh every year but what doesn’t change is the gratitude that the students have
for the generous donors that help them out on their voyage. I remember when we
started this 20 years ago just a little idea let’s let’s throw a party and raise
some money for students and look where we are now.
