Arts Alive 17 was the most successful fundraising event in the history of Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts (MHCA), grossing more than $205,000.  Proceeds from the event will fund Maryland Hall’s mission to “art for all” to more than 100,000 people of all ages in our community. 

The theme for the event, which took place on Friday, September 11, was “Swing for the Arts.”  The event began in a “tent under the stars” on Maryland Hall’s front driveway with a sizeable silent auction and tasting stations featuring food and drinks donated by 22 local restaurants, caterers and hotels.  Following the silent auction, guests moved inside to Maryland Hall’s newly-renovated theatre for swing and jazz music by the Craig Gildner Big Band and a live auction and a paddle raise in support of Maryland Hall’s Outreach Program.   

More than 500 people attended the event, including guests of 37 sponsors who donated between $1,500 and $10,000 in support of Maryland Hall.  Guests included Maryland First Lady Yumi Hogan, Representative John Sarbanes, Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh, State Senators John Astle and Ed Reilly and Former Maryland First Lady Frances Glendening. 

“We could not have raised these vital funds without the generous donations from 150+ local businesses, organizations and restaurants who contributed valuable goods and services to the event,” said Linnell Bowen, MHCA President.  “We are also thankful to our 100+ Arts Alive volunteers, led by Event Co-Chairs Barbara Jackson and Lisanna Gardiner, for their time, energy and enthusiasm.”   

Proceeds from Arts Alive help underwrite Maryland Hall’s 2015-2016 season of performances, exhibitions, outreach and education activities that will positively impact the lives of thousands of people in our community.
