Annual Gala 2018

Save the Date.

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2018 Annual Gala, Old Hollywood at Cocoanut Grove, was held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Art Ovation Hotel and featured a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. The event was chaired by Susan Malloy Jones, Elizabeth Moore, Jules Price and Michelle Senglaub and was hosted by ABC7’s Joey Panek. The evening’s entertainment featured headliner Warren Priske and his Old Hollywood Jazz Band, and a special performance by Ana Isabelle, who starred in Asolo Rep’s 2017 fall musical Evita.
 
Gala proceeds supported the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2017/18 season and our award-winning Education and Community 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.

SAVE THE DATE FOR NEXT YEAR: March 2, 2019
