2022 Heart and Soul Gala is a Success

Recorded By Chain Reaction Studios and Filmed at the City of Monroe Dowd Center Theatre


A heartfelt thank you to all who participated in the 2022 Union Symphony Heart and Soul Gala held this past Saturday at the historic and lovely Grande Victorian in Monroe. It was truly an evening to remember of exceptional jazz, delicious southern rustic cuisine, signature cocktails, top live auction items and so much more, as we raised funds for our Union Symphony programs. While the results of the evening are still coming in, your efforts in our live auction alone raised over $20,000. We keep the music playing with the generosity and support of our community and beyond. Thank you donors, guests, sponsors, and volunteers.

With gratitude,

Michele J King
2022 Heart and Soul Fundraising Chair
