Annual Arts for All Gala is essential to Lawton art programs

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- The Arts for All Organization is getting ready for their annual Gala that will be held tomorrow in Lawton.Today is the big push to get everything in order for the event. The Arts for All Gala is just a day away and, if you haven't gotten tickets, you might want to act quick!

This year, they'll be celebrating their 21st year of holding the event, which is vital in funding art projects around Lawton.

"The group- the Arts for All organization - have seven-member organizations that really, include a huge segment of the community - everyone we hope - That would be the goal," said Arts for All board member Jan Stratton. "Without the money these art groups seriously would not survive we depend I know when I was on the Lawton community theater board we depended on that check. Without it, it would not be the same and every group I know feels the same way a good hunk of money goes to these art groups right from this arts for all organization."

Tomorrow at 7 o'clock in the evening,  the Great Plains Coliseum will be filled with people supporting the arts in our community. There will be a silent auction, food, and live entertainment. Tickets are $40-dollars per person and are available at the Arts for All office. The proceeds will be put back into Lawton to keep the arts strong.

This year, they're hoping to raise anywhere from $60,000 to $70,000 for their different member organizations. For more information, visit
