Syracuse, N.Y.(NCC News) — The Everson Social will make its first debut on October 13 at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse. The Everson Museum decided to put a pause on the annual picnic and feature the Everson Social as the premier fundraising event of 2022. The event will involve great food, socializing, and a culinary experience. This year, committee members decided to build an event around a Hip Hop group from Los Angeles. Versa-style will be doing a weeklong residency at the Everson Museum and performing two shows a day for the Syracuse School District.
This fundraiser will help raise money for Everson exhibits and programs. Director of Communications Kristin Sheehan states, “We had to take advantage of a unique opportunity to shake things up.” Sheehan says that the focus of this year’s event is to honor the lifelong volunteers who make the Everson what it is today. The 2022 Everson Award recipients are: Jessica Arb Danial, Patricia Miller, and Sandra DiBianco (posthumously). Sheehan believes that the Everson is a community hub for Central New York. The Social will allow sponsors to support the arts and future events for the museum.
Tickets went on sale today August 10 and are priced at 250 dollars apiece. Sponsorship opportunities are available for area businesses. Four new exhibits will be on display during the fundraiser, and a Central New York artist Helene Starr will have an exhibit on display too. Mark your calendars for this innovative event as it brings a new perspective to Syracuse.
