My friends all know that I like a good party. I have been looking forward to the Depot Theatre Gala since I was hired in April. Give me a good reason to dress up, eat yummy food, drink, and dance and just try to keep me from being there. And this Gala did not disappoint. If you want to see some of the great photos of the fun you are either a) responsible for or b) going to be sorry you missed, please check out the Depot Theatre Gala Facebook Page.
Thank you to all of our guests, to the folks who donated our amazing live and silent auction items, to the generous people who bid on items (& bid on upgrading our office technologies!), to our beyond hard-working staff, and to our super-supportive Board of Trustees - most especially Gala Committee members John Hall and Kate Danzeizen. The Westport Country Club took good care of us in spite of the monsoon that extended our cocktail hour by 20 minutes (but hey, who's complaining about that?)
And last but not least, we've got BINGO on Tuesday, August 14 from 6-8pm at the Westport Heritage House. At what other fundraiser do the guests get to be the ones raising their own funds? Cash and prize packages will be available to win - plus find out which number is Roothe Farnsworth's favorite (hint: it's not a G number)!
Looking forward to seeing you soon at the Depot Theatre - where you can take a journey without leaving the station!
See y'all soon,
Y. Angel Wuellner, Managing Director, Depot Theatre
