An Important Update!
To our beloved ArtsBridge community:
Your safety and well-being is our first concern.
We are following the constantly updated guidance of governing authorities and institutions such as the Mayor, the Governor, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the World Health Organization.
That said, the ArtsKSU Revue Field Trip, scheduled for March 18th, is cancelled and the Overture Gala, scheduled for Saturday, March 21st, is postponed. Thus far, the Summer Bootcamp Series, scheduled for mid-June, will occur until further notice.
In consultation with the Broadway League/Jimmy Awards and our partners at Georgia Public Broadcasting, Georgia State University and more, we are working to find a solution for a version of the Shuler Awards to occur this year; we will keep you posted.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate this unprecedented time. We wish each and every one of you safety and good health.
Jennifer D. Dobbs
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 partnered with an incredible show at the Cobb Performing Arts Centre, with previous shows including Kristin Chenoweth, Dance Theatre of Harlem, and Million Dollar Quartet. Live entertainment during the dinner is provided by Overall Production winners of the Shuler Awards from the previous year. The Bid-to-Give portion helps to raise funds for the Adopt-A-School financial aid subsidy program and benefits students across the state of Georgia.
The 2020 Overture Gala, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 21st, 2020 is postponed.
Donor Appreciation Luncheon
Every spring, ArtsBridge hosts a luncheon to thank all those who invest in the lives of the students we serve. Attendees get to see firsthand how their gifts have impacted Georgia's youth, as well as join together for a delicious meal prepared by Culinary Director and Executive Chef, Nicholas Walker. Attendees include Broadway Star Shuler Hensley, among many other influential members of the Atlanta community.
We hope to see you at our next Donor Luncheon!
ArtsBridge Foundation partners with artists for meet and greet opportunities as they perform at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre to raise money throughout the year for general programming. Past Prelude events have included six time Tony® Award winner Audra McDonald!
These events happen as the performing artist is able to accommodate - check back here for upcoming Preludes!
