We are a group of women and men who organize one major fundraising event each year. GALA is an elegant event that brings supporters of the arts together for an enjoyable evening of charity. The night entails silent auction bidding, raffle ticket drawings, beautiful art and an energetic live auction.
In just the last five years, the Burlington Fine Arts League raised over $200,000 at the GALA to be awarded. In the past year more than $20,000 has been awarded as scholarships to students from all over the Des Moines County area. We also contributed over $30,000 to art related organizations, events and school activities. The Fine Arts League takes great pride in investing in our community’s effort to maintain and expand the arts. 100% of the money raised by the Burlington Fine Arts League is donated back to the community.
