Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2014 Annual Gala, A Night at the Rainbow Room, was held on Saturday, March 1,2014 at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and featured a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, live music and dancing. The event was chaired by Chris Cogan, Carol Phillips, Nikki Sedacca and Nikki Taylor and was hosted by Asolo Rep Company Member Carolyn Michel. The entertainment featured NYC Rainbow Room Headliner Michael Andrew & The Atomic Band, with a special performance by the star of Asolo Rep’s Show Boat Marissa McGowan.
All Gala proceeds benefitted Asolo Rep’s entire 2013-14 season and award-winning Education & Outreach programs, which help students develop an appreciation for the arts while gaining empathy and insight into the lives of others through experiencing, discussing and creating live theatre.
We thank all those who contributed to the success of this year’s event. We hope to see you at the theatre soon.
