Annual Gala

ANNUAL GALA 2020

 

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2020 Annual Gala, A Bollywood Ball, was held on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and featured a cocktail reception and auction, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. The event was chaired by Mary Braxton-Joseph, Tammy Karp, Donna Koffman and Elisabeth Waters. The evening’s entertainment featured a Bollywood-inspired show with dancers and performers, along with the Atlanta-based 5-piece Indian band Jashn. This year's guest artists included Shivali Bhammer and Navin Kundra.  

 

Gala proceeds supported the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2019/20 season and our award-winning Education & Engagement 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.
