Gatsby’s Phantom Gala
Friday, April 17 to Saturday, April 25

Thank you to everyone who made Gatsby’s Phantom Gala a fantastic success. During these uncertain times, we appreciate everyone’s support. Your efforts to ensure the music plays on into the future is simply wonderful.
We are proud to announce that our virtual gala raised over $47,000 to support IPO’s artistic educational programs!

IPO’s 42nd Anniversary Roaring 20’s Gala is going virtual! Due to the recent mandates surrounding COVID-19 and for the safety of all of our patrons, IPO has canceled the in-person portion of the annual gala on April 25, 2020, and moved to a virtual format open online from Friday, April 17 to Saturday, April 25, 2020.

We thought one night of celebration wasn’t enough, so instead, we will celebrate our gala for a whole week! We hope you will join us online for our gala and fun content that will come during the week. With the purchase of a gala ticket, you will be invited to a cocktail party featuring an IPO string trio at Olympia Fields Country Club at a later date, when it is safe to gather in person again.

IPO is fortunate to have such dedicated supporters and volunteers who give so generously to support our mission. While we are disappointed not to see all of our attendees in person this year, we will spend a week bringing our mission to you online and via social media.

IPO’s Annual Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year, raising funds to support educational and artistic programming for years to come. Help us to make this a roaring success for the Southland!

IPO is cognizant of the fact that many in our community may be more personally affected by this pandemic. Please know we are sending you strength during this time and understand if you are unable to participate in our virtual gala. We look forward to connecting with you on the other side of this global health emergency.
