Nonprofit Spotlight: Craft Alliance Makers Ball

March 26, 2019

Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design is a nonprofit arts center in St. Louis. What began as a cooperative art gallery more than 50 years ago has expanded to offer workshops and classes, free community programs, a popular gallery gift shop and artist exhibitions and residencies.

The Makers Ball, an annual evening of celebration benefiting Craft Alliance, is a gala with a goal. The event highlights Craft Alliance’s commitment to community and provides a unique opportunity for partygoers to explore the wide breadth of programming and education the organization delivers.

Karen Foss, award-winning St. Louis broadcast journalist and patron of the arts, will be the honorary chair and emcee of the 2019 Makers Ball. Foss is even a former student of Craft Alliance workshops.

Appropriately themed On Fire!, an element that plays a role in a lot of different craft media, the 2019 Makers Ball will include live flaming demonstrations by local craft artists, live and silent auctions, and other surprises. Hopefully, this event will ignite passion in attendees to assist Craft Alliance’s mission.

“The Makers Ball is important because the funds that are raised at the event go to support the programs that reach out into the community,” Witzling says. “Craft transforms lives.”
