Agala full of roses grants opportunities for young artists
TheNational Society of Arts and Letters (NSAL) Florida East Coast Chapter will host its “Red Rose Gala” March 27 at the Royal Palm Yacht& Country Club. Heading into its 32nd year, this black-tie event is co-chaired by Alyce Erickson, Linda Gunn Paton and honorary chairwoman Christine Lynn. The gala will honor Lynn University president Dr. Kevin Ross and NSAL’s 2014 competition and scholarship winners.
“This year’s gala is particularly meaningful for two reasons. Dr. Kevin Ross has been so instrumental in helping NSAL reach out to so many deserving young artists, and secondly, because of our incredibly talented Woodwind, Musical Comedy Theatre and NSAL Lynn University Scholarship winners who, with the support of NSAL, are turning their dreams into opportunities,” said Shari Upbin, president of NSAL.
Set to take place at the Royal Palm Yacht& Country Club, attendees will enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing, a silent auction and a performance by this year’s Woodwind and Musical Comedy Theatre winners. All proceeds fromthe “Red Rose Gala” will help fund scholarships and create competitions dispersed by the NSAL Florida East Coast Chapter for young artists in art, drama, dance, literature, music, voice and musical theater.
Founded in1944, NSAL is an organization of men andwomen committed to discovering, nurturing and financially assisting talented young artists in the dawn of their careers.
