STRING FLING GALA




Save the Date: String Fling 2014 will be held on Saturday, September 6, 2014
at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead!


The Center celebrated our 35th year on September 7th with our annual String Fling Gala. It was a uniquely magical evening filled with cocktails, puppets, balloons, confetti, streamers, the thrill of the bid, the rush of the raffle - it was incredible!

With the gracious support of donors like you, we were able to raise over $200,000 to help support Field Trip sponsorships, our Distance Learning program, our arts-infused education programming, and more! We’d like to give a big, heartfelt Thank You to our sponsors, committee members, auction donors, volunteers, and everyone who made String Fling possible. With your help, String Fling 2013 was a complete success. Thank you again; we are truly fortunate to have your support.
