Thank you for making our 2018 IMAGINE Gala the most joyful, successful gala in the history of The Academy! Nearly 300 guests were in attendance and, together, we grossed over $435,000 in support of scholarship and world-class educational programs. This is an increase by more than 20% compared to last year and we are deeply grateful!

Academy students performed and exhibited stunning work Friday night, we celebrated the tremendous philanthropic investment and leadership of Rusty and Jeffrey Sanfilippo, and our generous array of sponsors and guests were abuzz over the fabulous live and silent auction offerings. The celebratory vibe was palpable among our guests — both those who were able to attend and those participating remotely. Students, parents, alumni, civic and business leaders, arts patrons, trustees, faculty, and staff came together to have a ball, raise a ton of funding for critical priorities — scholarship and world-class education program, and to IMAGINE the possibilities.

None of this would be possible without you, and we thank you.
