About the Gala

Each year, the OCSA Foundation hosts a themed Gala, featuring a spectacular student performance, incredible virtual and live auctions, and a gourmet dinner. Gala is OCSA’s largest, most prestigious fundraiser of the year. All proceeds from the event contribute toward the $13 million needed annually to continue providing our donation-dependent arts programs. Please consider joining us for, or helping to underwrite, one of the most entertaining and unforgettable evenings of the year. 

Together, we can help our exceptional young artists reach for their dreams!

Save the date for an unforgettable night at Gala 2024: New York State of Mind!

Guests will move to the ballroom, which will shimmer with the glittering lights of the unmistakable Manhattan skyline, and enjoy three delicious courses of artfully plated cuisine. The evening's sensational production will feature original arrangements of numbers from some of Broadway's most beloved musicals, as well as moving tributes celebrating this magical city of dreams!
