posted by Andrea Glickman, Director of Development

The 2011 City Theatre “gala season” kicked off on February 10th with a special reception attended by members of the 2011 Gala and Auction Host Committee.  The kick-off party was held at American Eagle Outfitters’ headquarters in the South Side Works, coordinated by AEO employee, City Theatre Board Member and Gala Co-chair, Cyrus Erickson.  Clyde, Cyrus, and Gala co-chairs, Tacy Byham and Laura Kronk, welcomed the committee members and inspired everyone to strive for record attendance and to exceed the fundraising goals we have set for the Gala.

Guests enjoyed complimentary food and wine as they mingled with each other and City Theatre’s Artistic Director, Tracy Brigden and Interim Managing Director, Mark Power.

The event was generously underwritten by Clyde Jones, President of the theatre’s Board of Directors and Chair of the Gala host committee.  Even though the Gala is over three months away, the momentum is building, tickets are selling, the auction catalog is growing and corporate sponsors are signing on.  We look forward to seeing you all at the Gala on Monday, May 23rd at Heinz Field’s East Club Lounge.  For more information and/or to purchase tickets, please contact Dianne Duursma at 412.431.4400 x278.
