Tower Club Fort Lauderdale hosted its second Annual Charity Art Exhibit benefitting the South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s impactful Symphony in the Schools program.
The community was invited to the private club for the charity art exhibit in support of the South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s Symphony in the Schools program. The event featured a cocktail reception, DJ and a silent auction showcasing the works of several local artists such as Lee Brock, Andrea Huffman, Ornella Verano, and Yozzy Davilsaint. “We are deeply grateful to Tower Club Fort Lauderdale and TJ Walsh for hosting this event to support our Symphony in the Schools program,” said Jacqueline Lorber, President and CEO of South Florida Symphony Orchestra. “In the past five years, we have provided over $3.5 million in services and resources for our education programs. Funds raised from this event will help ensure the continuation of these important programs that benefit children from underserved communities.” TJ Walsh, Managing Partner, The Walsh Law Firm and Board Director at South Florida Symphony Orchestra and Tower Club Fort Lauderdale, adds “Art is vital to the success and overall well-being of our community. The South Florida Symphony is the leading classical music orchestra in the region and their educational program, Symphony in the Schools, is unparalleled. I am thrilled that so many artists were willing to donate their extraordinary artwork to benefit such a worthy organization and invite members and non-members alike to join us for the event.”
The Symphony in Schools program is a crown jewel of South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s outreach initiatives, engaging over 100,000 children from Fort Lauderdale to the Florida Keys and allowing them to experience classical music – often for the first time – both through performances and educational engagements. South Florida Symphony Orchestra, the largest professional orchestra in the region, is committed to delighting, inspiring, and educating the communities that they serve. Founded 25 years ago by Music Director Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso, South Florida Symphony presents more than 100 concerts and events throughout South Florida each season.
