Salon 2020 A Virtual Success
Our first virtual Salon Gala program on November 14 was a huge success raising over $30,000 to support the Propylaeum. A big thank you to all who provided support videos, bought tickets, contributed to underwriting, participated in the silent auction, donated to fund-a-need and made cash donations. A special thank you to the professional performances by the Propylaeum Quartet of the ISO, and ensembles from both the Indianapolis Ballet and the Indianapolis Opera, and spoken-word performer Okara Imani.
I want to thank the committee who worked so hard behind-the-scenes brainstorming and creating this wonderful virtual program, Jill Chambers, Kassie Ritman, Nora Spitznogle, Diane Tolliver, Monica Vojnovich, and Rose Wernicke. Hats off to Diane Tolliver, silent auction chair, for creating our first online silent auction. I hope everyone loved the electronic bidding; I did!
Thank you as well to staff members Liz Ellis and LaurieAnne Perez who contributed hours and creativity to help make this salon the best ever.
Thank you to all members, friends, and supporters of the Propylaeum for the best virtual Salon Gala ever.
