The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council would like to thank everyone who came out to this year’s 80’s party themed Gala for the Arts! Because of your incredible support and passion for creativity, we were able to raise $65,000 in support of the arts and arts education!

170 guests attended the Gala at the Nile Country Club

Held at the Nile Golf and Country Club for the first time, over 170 guests enjoyed delicious food, drinks, sweets, and a variety of 80's themed activities. Guests pulled out all the stops and traveled back in time to wear some eye-popping outfits, including Best Dressed Winners, Micah and Monica Blair!

The heART award represents dedication, generosity, and passion to the mission of the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, which is to cultivate creativity and inspire our community through the arts. Thank you, Bob, for everything you do for the Arts Council!

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!
