FLAMEº, COCA’s annual appreciation event for current Richard Baron Leadership Circle (RBLC) members, will be held on January 21, 2022.

We will honor the awardees of the Ferring Award for Philanthropy and the Newell S. “Jim” Knight Volunteer Service Award. It will be a night to remember!

Event Update (January 6, 2022):

We have been looking forward to gathering together at COCA in gratitude of the Richard Baron Leadership Circle. However, due to the highly contagious Omicron COVID-19 variant and in the interest of health and safety, we have made the difficult decision to move our January 21 FLAME° event to a virtual platform. Additional details for RBLC members are forthcoming.

Questions? Contact Virginia Howell at vhowell@cocastl.org.

FLAME° is a complimentary appreciation event to celebrate the members of the Richard Baron Leadership Circle (RBLC) and showcase the extraordinary talent developed at COCA every day. Richard D. Baron founded COCA in 1986, transforming a synagogue designed by renowned architect Eric Mendelsohn into a community arts center. From the start, COCA has been a beacon in our community, using the arts to transform young lives and foster creative potential.

The RBLC allows COCA to provide $1 million annually in tuition support, student support services, and arts education programs to schools. Investment in the RBLC has also contributed to COCA becoming the 4th largest community arts center in the country! COCA sincerely thanks members of the RBLC for sharing the passion for our mission. Now, with your support, COCA is poised to extend our impact to benefit the next generation.
