Little Orphan Annie Fundraising Dinner
Saturday December 8th, 5:30-6:45pm
NEYT is hosting an elegant fundraising dinner for our Angels in the Wings Scholarship Fund.
"Pairing this dinner with Annie is such a fun idea - Annie is all about finding a home for a girl without a family and NEYT is a home, or a second home, for so many kids in our community!" says Bari Shamas.
Food will be catered by Elizabeth Warner of Elizabethan Fare. Dinner tickets are $50 for adults, $35 for students.
The dinner will be served at 5:30-6:45 pm on Saturday December 8th. This puts it right between the afternoon and evening shows of Annie! so, don't forget to get tickets to the show as well.
"This is a terrific way to celebrate the holidays: a nice dinner, a special show, and giving to a worthy charity that benefits our community's children." says Elizabeth Warner. "I'm so glad we're doing this!"
