Annual Arts Awards Gala

PRESS RELEASE

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO—The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri is proud to announce that recipients of the 2015 annual Otto F. Dingeldein and Friend of the Arts Awards will be honored during a reception in January. Recipients of these prestigious awards will be announced at the Dingeldein Gala, held on Friday, January 8, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the home of Dr. Sandra and Jerry McCearley in Jackson, Missouri. During this time, a very special announcement will also be made pertaining to the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri.

The Otto F. Dingeldein Award was established in 1975 and honors living individuals whose artistic achievements have made a considerable impact on the cultural enrichment of the Cape Girardeau community. The award can be given to artists, non-artists, or to organizations.

The Friend of the Arts award was established in 2002 and is one of the highest honors the Arts Council can bestow upon an individual, or organization, within the community. Nominees are involved with the Arts Council in a capacity that helps the organization achieve its goals for programming and outreach. This assistance can be delivered either through the nominee's service as a volunteer, or through donations of funds or goods.

Sponsors of the Dingeldein Gala scheduled in January include hosts Dr. Sandra and Jerry McCearley as well as Celebrations Restaurant and Primo Vino.

Tickets for the Gala are $25.00 per person, and can be purchased through the Arts Council prior to the event, or at the door on January 8.

For more information about the Gala, please contact Murielle Gaither at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri.
