There was something for everyone Saturday night at Starkville Area Artâ€™s Councilâ€™s annual Artâ€™s Gala. The dinner, dancing and auction were enhanced by the addition of the MSU vs. LSU football game playing in the ballroom.
Bekah Sparks, co-chair of the gala planning committee, felt like once the game was turned on, the energy in the room became more excited.

And he was right.
