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. Through the scholarships and awards, that NSAL pro­vides, nu­mer­ous young artists are able to turn their dreams into op­por­tu­ni­ties while pro­mot­ing a greater in­ter­est and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the arts.
