3rd Annual Art Gala and Auction - April 5th
Our 3rd Annual Art Gala was a huge success, raising $18,000 to support the Arts in our schools and the students of the Downingtown Area School District. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, the work of our talented artists and the efforts of our volunteers, 400 members of the community were able to enjoy this event and be a part of the Foundation's initiative to support, inspire and enrich the Downingtown Area School District community by providing innovative educational programs and services to all its students.
The Art Gala would not be possible without the involvement of the DASD art teachers and students. Thank you to Karen Guidas-Sidorick for generating enthusiasm around this event, recruiting teachers and organizing students. The Auction had 213 artists (253 counting the MC6 Mural club) enter 237 pieces of art. There were 34 pieces in Live Auction, 58 in the Silent Auction and 145 in the Showcase.
