About the Gala

Each year, the OCSA Foundation hosts a themed, black-tie Gala, featuring a spectacular student performance, incredible silent and live auctions, and a gourmet dinner. Gala is OCSA’s largest, most prestigious fundraiser of the year, raising more than $1 million annually. All proceeds from the event contribute toward the $10 million needed annually to continue providing our tuition-free, 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 these exceptional young artists reach for their dreams!
