2017 ARTSGALA Host Committee

The ARTSGALA Host Committee is comprised of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about the arts and who play a vital role with community outreach, event organization, and auction and sponsorship support.  Since the first ARTSGALA in 2000, these friends of the University have helped the College of Liberal Arts raise over $2.2 million for scholarships for Wright State’s fine and performing arts students.  This amazing group ensures that ARTSGALA continues to be the premier event in the Dayton area!
