Annual Overture Gala
ArtsBridge Foundation holds this major fundraising event once a year to gather community support for our arts education program season. The event is paired with an incredible show at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre; previous pairings include Kristin Chenoweth, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Jay Leno, and Million Dollar Quartet. Live entertainment during the gourmet dinner is provided by Overall Production winners of the previous year’s Shuler Awards®. The Bid-to-Give portion and large raffle items raise funds for the Adopt-A-School financial aid subsidy program and benefit students across the state of Georgia.
Join event Co-Chairs Samit & Mita Roy and Sid & Elisa Roy of Scicom Infrastructure Services, Inc.; Honorary Chair Valerie Jackson, award-winning television broadcast journalist, former First Lady of the City of Atlanta and Member, Atlanta Restaurant Partners, LLC Monica Pearson, for a raucous evening that is paired with ABBA: The Concert – A Tribute to ABBA!
Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards
ArtsBridge Foundation holds the Georgia High School Musical Awards, also known as "The Shuler Awards" once a year. This event recognizes, promotes, and celebrates nearly 10,000 Georgia high school musical students. It was originally designed to increase awareness, advocacy and support for Georgia’s theater arts education programs across the state of Georgia.
During the pandemic, we were met with a challenge to hold these virtually, but we are back in-person for 2022!
