FAMILY DAY WITH THE ARTS
The family place to be …Saturday October 26th and Sunday October 27th the Ocala Fine Arts Festival returns to downtown Ocala with the art maze for the kids to create sponsored by MCA, shopping early for the holidays provided by participating artists, food, music, and lots of fun. Spanning from Citizens Circle near City Hall, to the Ocala Downtown Square and a little beyond, Fine Arts for Ocala has something for everyone.
Come join us from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days and have a great time!
Gerald’s active support of the arts in downtown Ocala precedes the founding of Marion Cultural Alliance dating back to his service on City Council and as Mayor when his support of Brick City Center for the Arts, Discovery Science Center (now Discovery Center), and others lead to the formation of MCA. His continued support was key to the early success of MCA and its signature project, Horse Fever.
His name is synonymous with this organization, and frankly, several others in Marion County! Gerald is a seemingly tireless supporter of MCA and its mission in our community. He has served as a Board member, Board chairman, volunteer, donor, general contractor, horse wrangler, transporter, liaison with city government and catalyst for fundraising projects that have changed the face of MCA.
We are blessed to have Gerald as a supporter of our mission but most importantly our community is blessed to have Gerald as an example for us and future generations of philanthropists. Thank you Gerald for all that you do for MCA and your community.
MCA was pleased to honor Gerald Ergle this November at the Association of Fundraising Professionals luncheon as MCA’s Outstanding Volunteer of the Year.
