Thank you to all who joined us March 11, 2017 at the Loews Hotel in Annapolis for our Annual Gala!

Festivities began at 6:30 p.m. with our silent auction and continued throughout the night with food our live auction and entertainment.


The Arts Council’s annual Gala is our only major fundraising event of the year. This themed extravaganza, open to everyone, included a night of professional entertainment, dancing, silent & live auctions and dinner. Participating in our Gala is the perfect way to support the Arts Council’s mission of supporting the Arts of Anne Arundel County!


Thank you to the Marcus Mitchell Project for providing soft jazz to accompany dinner and lively music for dancing after the Live Auction!


Our live and silent auctions featured local art, hand painted wine glasses, trips to New York City and New Orleans, a beautiful ring from Elegant Slumming, sports jerseys, movie posters and some of the best high-end package experiences and fine jewelry pieces around for bidders to bid on.
