Our 20th annual Champagne & Chocolate Gala is a highlight of the holiday calendar in Tulsa that benefits all the programs at Living Arts.  This year we will be honoring 20 Friends For 20 Years, artists and patrons who have contributed to Living Arts’ success since 1994.  The Gala includes our famous Fashion Performance which features wearable art, an art sale and art auction from nearly 100 regional artists, original music and choreography, each inspired from the other and performed together. There will be complimentary champagne & exquisite Glacier Chocolates, our presenting chocolatier, in addition to hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are $35 UNTIL 5pm on Wednesday, December 3, 2014; $180 for a 6 pack; $45 at the door AFTER 5pm on Wednesday, December 3, 2014. Join us at the After Party at the new restaurant/bar The Rusty Crane, just south of Living ArtSpace following the Gala at 10pm!
