Marion County Alliance 14th Annual Applauding the Arts

The Marion Cultural Alliance 14th annual Applaud the Arts event will take place from noon to 12:30 p.m., October 10, at the Ocala Civic Theatre with a champagne brunch. Artists, CEOs, entrepreneurs, elected officials, arts patrons and nonprofit leaders will gather to applaud the visionary individuals and organizations that play a vital role in the quality of life in Ocala/Marion County and celebrate them with grants and awards.


The ethereal sounds of Tasha Robinson, principal harpist of the Ocala Symphony Orchestra, will grace the theatre’s new outdoor stage. Local artists put a creative twist put on classic comedy and tragedy masks, which will be available to collect. Local restaurants will provide culinary delights created just for Applaud, along with mimosa and bloody Mary packages to enjoy perusing designer auction items. Sensational Selfies will capture the festivities with their fun selfie station so attendees can leave with photos in hand and wonderful memories in their hearts.
