Meet Our Empower Artists Sponsors

On Nov. 8, we our hosting our second annual Empower Artists Gala, a fundraising event where we celebrate our gracious donors and the progress Off The Lane has made as a mission-oriented organization. Our programming strives to help young artists succeed in their careers, and none of our programming would be possible without our donors. With your generous support, we have launched 5 programs and have reached over 250 artists from diverse backgrounds and are looking to an exciting year ahead.

We’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the following donors for helping make the 2021 Empower Artists Gala possible: Herb n’ Peach, We Are Volume, Flaweless, and Show Up Event Consulting. Please support these kind, wonderful people and their businesses!

“When you Google the arts – Wikipedia says a list of things it includes and is not limited to-the first of which is music. The Arts inspire me and spark memories that put me in my happiest place. A song, a dance, a picture or even creating a meal can help me to be more mindful and creative. The arts inspire me and allow me to inspire others.” — Ally Lipton McArthur (Owner)
