Sold out crowd for Gala for the Arts

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council would like to thank everyone who came out to this year’s wedding-themed Gala for the Arts! Because of your exceptional support and passion for creativity, we were able to raise $73,800 in support of the arts and arts education! From that total, we were able to raise $18,900 for our Artists in Schools grant program!

Held at the Shoreline Center, over 200 guests enjoyed delicious food, drinks, sweets, and a variety of wedding themed activities. The specialty champagne bar even had a royal wedding drink named after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex called the Harry and Meghan! Guests unearthed their past wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses, and suits, including Best Dressed Winner, Norm Lieberman!

It's clear that the sweet tooth always makes an appearance at the Gala. During this year's dessert dash we raised an astounding $6,660! Thank you to all of those who provided these delightfully sweet dishes.

It was fantastic seeing so many community members come out to enjoy each other’s company and share stories and memories as well as continue to build new ones. We look forward to furthering our mission and promoting the arts and creativity amongst the Shoreline Lake-Forest Park community.
