ANNUAL GALA

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2017 Annual Gala, La Fête de Monte Carlo, was held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and featured a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. The event was chaired by Ann Charters, Caroline Ellerson, Susan Malloy Jones and Jill Ramsey and was hosted by ABC 7’s Joey Panek. The evening’s entertainment featured headliner Mark Zauss and his 11-piece orchestra, the 007 Band, and a special performance by Veronica J. Kuehn, who starred in Asolo Rep’s 2016 fall musical Guys and Dolls. Gala proceeds supported the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2016/17 season and our 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.
