ArtsGala planned for Wright State


If you ask folks in our region to name their favorite community fundraising gala, chances are many will pick Wright State University’s annual ArtsGala.

What makes this event so special are the 250 talented students who entertain guests with theater, dance, motion pictures, music, visual arts. In the past 14 years, the festive evening has raised $1.6 million for arts scholarships.

This year’s party, which will take place from 6:30 p.m. until midnight, is slated for Saturday, April 12, and will be held in the Creative Arts Center. About 600 attend each year.

Among the highlights for this 15th anniversary celebration are a Wind Symphony, selections from “Les Miserables,” live artistic creations by student artists, a student film festival, chamber orchestra and dance performances.
