The 2021 Virtual Short North Gala helps to Lift Up the Short North Arts District, as we honor those who have done the same. This year, we’re honoring an incredible set of honorees who have contributed to our local community in so many ways.

The Short North Gala also supports the Short North Alliance, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves the business and property owners of the Short North Arts District. After the challenging year we’ve all gone through, our organization needs your support more than ever — but we aren’t the only ones.

This year, a portion of the proceeds from General Admission and VIP Tickets and Tables will go directly to Short North Arts District partnering businesses, in order to lift up our local business community as well.
