"The arts enable us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time! My general nature is to give, not to keep score, but to give wholeheartedly to programs like this one that I soundly believe in. The arts in their entirety, have a rare and unique way of changing the world!" - James Hardy, Classic Lawn + Landscape
While the Gala is cancelled, we will celebrate James', Lillian's, & Amelia's hard work in both fundraising and practicing. We are planning a creative way to honor their support and give awards to the top fundraisers at an online celebration on October 22, so stay tuned.
The annual Gala Dinner and Ballroom Dance Competition event fuels the operating budget of the Maryland Center for the Arts, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides quality arts programs for all ages and is building an arts center in Bel Air, MD to provide quality space for performances, exhibits, and educational programs in the arts. Because of your generous support, we have been able to continue our operations, partnerships to provide arts programming around the region, our Harford Plein Air outdoor painting festival, and our capital project to provide the community with an arts center for performances, art exhibits, and educational programs in the arts.

“While the Coronavirus pandemic has caused the cancellation of such an important and truly entertaining fundraising gala event, the arts continue to be vital to our communities. We need to continue to support the arts through these unprecedented times so that when it is safe we will again join together for dancing, concerts of all kinds, art exhibits, and all other forms of art that can transform communities,” said Gala Honorary Chair, Yumi Hogan, First Lady of Maryland.
