The Geneva Cultural Arts Commission is thrilled to report it raised $15,000 during its Eat Your Art Out! gala fundraiser March 7.
The second annual event held at the Herrington Inn & Spa provided a night of fine dining combined with beautiful art, which was sold through both silent and live auctions.
The generosity of Eat Your Art Out! participants enables the Commission to foster and infuse the community with annual events/programs, including the Geneva Film Festival, Summer Concert Series at RiverPark, Shakespeare in the Park, Steeple Walk, Bike + Rack = Art and the Greater Geneva Art Guild.
