Each year, the Starkville Area Arts Council holds our annual fundraising gala and silent auction. With this year's gala, "Eye On The Arts", we will be bringing an exciting, interactive experience with the arts to our patrons. Guests will be entertained by a variety of art experiences including a 3 course dinner, a wine tasting, music and dancing, a variety show, and a silent auction including works of art donated by many local artists.
The Gala is cocktail/formal attire and will be at the Hunter Henry Center. Tickets are $75 each. For information about purchasing tickets or donating pieces to our silent auction, contact the SAAC office at 662.324.3080.
Proceeds from this fundraising event help the Starkville Area Arts Council work toward our mission of promoting arts in the Starkville area. In pursuit of our mission, SAAC produces many local events including the Cotton District Arts Festival and Forks & Corks, organizes art experiences in the community including Art in the Park Children's Festival and the Starkville Art Walk, and we award grants and scholarships annually totaling around $30,000.
