Everyone’s Getting Excited!

On September 12, 2011,  Arts Horizons hosted a Benefit Committee Reception at the home of Chairman Emeritus and 2011 honoree Celeste Holm. The evening was filled with good food, good wine and great company.  In attendance were Co-Chairs of this year’s Gala Barbara Sellinger and Jo Standish along with Chairman of the Board Peter Culver, Trustees Donna Esteves, Rozanne Gold, Patricia Palermo, Jan Prokop and Founder, John Devol.

This annual event is hosted by Chairman Emeritus Celeste Holm, as an opportunity to get everyone excited about the Gala.  In true class, Ms. Holm took pictures with her star struck guest in her beautiful Manhattan apartment. Guests included awarded winning cookbook author Arthur Schwartz, Grammy Award nominee violinist Phillippe Quint and Jewelry Designer/Benefit Committee member  Norma Wellington.

As guest mingled, they became more familiar with each other and Arts Horizons.  This year Arts Horizons was excited to announce the launch of their new gala website, www.artshorizonsgala.org produced by E-Journal.  The venture was inspired by society’s effort to go green.  Realizing that there was a more eco-friendly and efficient way to serve not only their organization but their environment was the next step in continuing their success. The website is up and running and the organization hopes to increase their exposure for financial support.

The Benefit Committee which is made up of NY and NJ professionals volunteer their time to work with the organization in ensure that the Gala is a success. Members include E. Jean Ward, David Grossman, Kay J. Wright and Liz Roditi. They research sponsors, request donations and organize auctions; the list is endless but the reward is great.  Every sponsorship, journal ad, auction item helps Arts Horizons to continue their work to transform lives.
