Annual Gala 2019

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2019 Annual Gala, Vive les Folies Bergère, was held on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and featured a cocktail reception and raffle, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. The event was chaired by Tammy Karp, Donna Koffman, Jules Price and Michelle Senglaub and was hosted by ABC7’s Joey Panek. The evening’s entertainment featured headliner Tatiana Eva-Marie and her 5-piece Avalon Jazz Band, and a special Parisian Cabaret Show.

Gala proceeds supported the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2018/19 season and our award-winning Education & Community 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.

SAVE THE DATE FOR NEXT YEAR: March 7, 2020
