Chair of the Choral Arts Society Holiday Gala
What the best advice you’ve ever received about chairing a big fundraiser?
The best advice I have ever received is to start early on the gala. You can never start too early, and you have to choose a very good committee. You need people from many different backgrounds.
What is the best gala you’ve attended as a guest?
The Choral Arts Holiday Gala has always been a very special evening for me as it is the initial celebration of the holiday season. Additionally, it carries a significant philanthropic contribution as it helps support our award-winning arts education programs
What do you do the day after the gala is over?
I go back to my real job.
Do you prefer French service or plated courses?
At a gala with over 300 people, I prefer plated courses.
