The Board of Directors, and staff of the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council would like to thank everyone who made the 2014 Gala for the Arts such a success!

The approximately 150 guests at the event, held June 7 at the Shoreline Center, really went the extra mile by raising over $47,000 to make sure our communities will continue to be enriched by the Arts!

The Make a Difference portion of the evening (formally called “raise the paddle for arts education”) raised an impressive $10,700 for arts education in our schools; a 38% increase over last year! This money goes to support the Arts Council’s Artist-in-Schools program which brings working artists into the classroom to lead tactile, hands-on art experiences in our increasingly digital world.
