Spring gala to honor longtime contributors to East End Arts

Downtown Riverhead, East End Arts

East End Arts’ Spring Gala scheduled for Saturday will honor longtime patrons and Advisory Council members Içim and Mark Miller of Miller Environmental Group. 

The fundraising event, titled ARTworks 2014, will be held at Sea Star Ballroom in Riverhead from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Proceeds from the event help support East End Arts and provides for art and music lesson scholarships to local children.

The Millers have supported East End Arts in multiple ways. Most recently, they helped East End Arts’ string students receive the opportunity to perform under the direction of famed conductor Itzhak Perlman at Southold High School, alongside students from the Perlman Music Program Student Orchestra.

The fundraising event features cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing to the Trevor Davison Orchestra.

Last year’s event celebrated over 40 years of East End Arts and honored community supporters Alice and Jack Van de Wetering and gallery owner Peter Marcelle.
