First of its kind Italian themed gala coming to Columbus, and you’re invited

What if we told you that you could partake in a magical night away in Italy, all without booking the lengthy and pricey flight there?

Okay, well obviously that can’t actually happen, but here’s the next best thing: an Italian themed gala on May 10, complete with vibrant art, refreshing limoncello, delectable cuisine, and much more – all while staying in central Ohio.

Hosted by ALS United Ohio, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting individuals battling ALS, this one-of-a-kind gala is something you don’t want to miss. “We’ll be coming together for a feast for the senses,” explained Amy Hall, Event Fundraising and Engagement Manager of ALS United Ohio. “There’s never been anything like it in Central Ohio.” 

And the best part about it is that you’re invited.

This Farm to Table(aux) gala, themed “Da Vinci’s Arty Night,” features a spectacular array of living art installations, including Da Vinci and Mona Lisa themselves, where you’ll be able to pose for pictures and interact with both. Plus, a local chalk artist and a live accordion player will be showing off their talents during a 2 hour cocktail soiree to start the evening.

Guests will enjoy curated appetizers by none other than Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, who’s also a presenting sponsor. The acclaimed company will offer multiple delicious bites including prosciutto wrapped melon and mini Marcella’s meatballs. For dinner, a choice of chicken marsala, prime medallion sirloin, or a red wine vegan barley risotto will be offered. 

Indulge in fine Italian wines expertly paired with your meal, all while supporting a worthy cause. This gala serves as a beacon of hope for those affected by ALS, with proceeds directly funding services for people living with this devastating disease. 

You can elevate your gala experience by participating in the silent auctions featuring coveted items like golf packages, beauty packages, and high-end alcohol, among others. Bid on local artwork that’s worth $100-$1,000, unique travel opportunities, and even private chef dinners, with all proceeds benefiting ALS United Ohio’s mission. 

Don your finest cocktail attire and immerse yourself in an evening out in Italy (or the closest thing to it here in Ohio), knowing that your presence alone contributes to a brighter future for ALS patients and their families. 

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experience at The Exchange at Bridge Park. Secure your tickets, or even explore sponsorship opportunities by visiting here!
