15th Annual Great Art Heist – A HUGE success!





The 15th Annual Great Art Heist was held on Saturday, June 25th and it was tremendous success. RAL’s largest annual fundraiser was sold out by June 2nd. From the 112 pieces of art generously donated by RAL artists, members and friends, to the incredible Italian-inspired buffet, this years Heist was an exciting evening.

“This event would never have been possible without the incredible support of the volunteers who gave selflessly of their time,” stated Heist Chairperson Christine Mason. “This year’s event was fantastic with very few hiccups. I have received so many positive responses from our guests.”


Mistress of Ceremonies, Laurie Breakwell and her sidekick Pat Mason were a big hit and kept the event moving at a steady and manageable pace. Their energy was infectious and their antics made the environment quite entertaining.


“I have come to the Heist since it’s very first year. We buy two tickets every year and are surrounded by 32 pieces of beautiful art from the incredibly talented RAL artists,” stated Doug Mock, RAL Executive Director. “It is so gratifying to see where the Great Art Heist is today and how our community has embraced RAL and this amazing event.”


Plans are already in the works for 2023.
