SCAD Scholarship Gala Celebrates Art, Education, Student Success

The Savannah College of Art and Design announces its 12th annual Scholarship Gala Saturday, February 5, 2011 at the River Club, 3 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Savannah, Ga. The Scholarship Gala is the primary scholarship fundraiser for SCAD. Proceeds from the evening go to the SCAD scholarship endowment, which supports existing and creates new scholarships for the talented students at SCAD.

The annual Savannah Scholarship Gala is a celebratory evening for art enthusiasts from near and far to gather together and show their support for creative and talented SCAD students in need. The walls of the event space will showcase photographs, paintings, sketches, jewelry, sculptures and more, all of which are available for purchase in a silent auction. As always, the event will also feature imaginative decor and delectable cuisine.

“The scholarship gala is a unique opportunity for the community to embrace the SCAD students, celebrate their creativity and, most importantly, provide financial support to allow them to continue to be creative individuals,” says McLean Hooff, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “We have many scholarship recipients present at the event and seeing hundreds of supporters gathered together and enthusiastic about their art validates why they work so hard to continue their education and pursue their dreams.”

Individual patron tickets are $150 and include cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music, and a silent auction complete with original artwork created by SCAD students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Individual preview party tickets are $250 and include an exclusive buy-it-now option, catered cocktail party, special VIP activities plus all the features included in the patron party.
