What is The GALA?

The GALA combines the talents of two organizations to raise money for The Arts in southern Illinois. The title is an acronym for the concept: Giving through Art | Learning through Art. Proceeds are split between Cedarhurst Center for the Arts and SSM Health Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation.

In 2017 more than 130 people attended the inaugural event, raising more than $70,000. Proceeds helped renovate Cedarhurst’s Beck Family Center, a place where families can create, play, and connect; and helped SSM Health Good Samaritan Hospital launch Compassion Unleashed, a program that provides hope and healing through art, music, and pet therapies.

Proceeds from the 2018 event will help SSM further develop its therapy programs, while Cedarhurst will use its portion to champion projects in the sculpture park, part of the new Kimball’s Habitat campaign.

All auction items at The GALA are created through Cedarhurst programs. Young artists take pride in donating their artwork to The GALA and find confidence knowing that we value their creativity and talent.
