State of the Art: Gala and Silent Auction

Cultivate Grand Rapids’ Fundraising Committee is hosting the Annual State of the Art:  Gala and Silent Auction, a social event with a silent auction to benefit and support the school’s current and future goals of excellence in education. Cultivate Grand Rapids uses proceeds raised from the State of the Art event each year to fill the gap in its annual budget, while improving our space and enriching our students’ experiences in arts, culture, and the environment while partnering with community stakeholders, creatives, and organizations.

The State of the Art: Gala and Silent Auction is not only the organization’s largest fundraiser and an evening of fun and merriment, it also a great opportunity to meet administrators, teachers, staff, alumni and parents.
