Guests at the Fischoff gala helped raise money for music education

Some 100 Michiana residents traveled back in time to 1920’s Paris at an event aimed at raising support for music education.

The Fischoff National Chamber Music Association hosted its annual black tie fundraising gala in downtown South Bend with the theme of “Midnight in Paris.”

As a cabaret jazz saxophone quartet filled the air with music, guests packed into the Palais Royale Ballroom and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, a French bistro dinner and a silent auction.

The money raised at tonight’s benefit helps support the Fischoff’s goal of encouraging kids and teens to pursue their love of music.

“It's a wonderful support vehicle for us. The money we're raising tonight is being used to support all of Fischoff's educational programs for kids in our schools in 2013, which is the Fischoff's 40th anniversary in South Bend” says the association’s executive director, Ann Divine.

NewsCenter 16’s own Maureen McFadden showed her support for the arts by attending this year’s gala.

The Fischoff hosts the biggest chamber music competition in the world in South Bend every spring.
