About This Event

The Caroga Arts Collective presents the “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” 7th Annual Caroga Arts Gala on July 20th, 2024

This year’s gala promises to be an evening of fantasy, fun, and fairies as we enter the enchanted forest and revel in the magic of music.

Musical entertainment for the evening will feature Cara Samantha, of American Idol, and her band Highline, New York’s top dance band for luxury weddings and events. Cara has been a prominent artist at Caroga Lake Music Festival since 2014.

The 2024 Ruth and George Abdella Award Recipient: Joyce Barrett aka “Grandma”

We will proudly be presenting the Ruth and George Abdella Award to this year’s recipient, Joyce Barrett (aka Grandma), in honor of her instrumental role in nurturing the roots of the organization over the past twelve years by providing meals and housing for our musicians, as well as inspiration, guidance, and countless hours in writing thousands of treasured hand-written thank you notes to our donors and patrons through all the years (as she continues to do to this day).

We excited to have you join us for this magical evening. We promise you an evening unlike any other! This year’s gala is being chaired by the mother/daughter team of Judy and Mia Simon. If you would like to volunteer to serve on the Gala Committee or donate an item for the evening’s auction, please contact Judy Simon at judy@carogaarts.org.

The Caroga Arts Collective Gala is one of the largest fundraising event of the year, providing vital support for the daily operations of the organization. All Gala contributions help support Caroga Arts Collective’s mission to reimagine the Caroga experience through the power of the arts.
