Celebrating 28 years of Making a Dramatic Difference in our community
2019 Honoree Paul R. Tetreault, Ford's Theatre Director
Join us on the evening of Sunday, November 3 for our annual Cabaret Benefit Dinner + Auction at the Ritz-Carlton Washington. Enjoy fantastic food, entertainment, and live and silent auctions.
This annual event gathers over 500 guests each year and supports and provides the greatest source of income for our scholarships and community outreach programs.
Last year's event featured touching performances, live music, one of the largest silent and live auctions in town, and raised funds to support theatre education for people whom the arts rarely reach. You don't want to miss this night.
The open bar begins at 5pm and dinner is served at 7pm.
