MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE’S
NINTH ANNUAL GALA ‘WE’VE GOT ELEGANCE’
TO SHINE AT THE BREAKERS
Dec. 14, 2011 (Jupiter) – The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s ninth annual gala, “We’ve Got Elegance,” is set to shine and sparkle as the not-for-profit theater’s most spectacular, elegant evening of the year!
Inspired by the Theatre’s upcoming production of the Tony Award-winning musical Hello, Dolly!, the affair will take place at 6 p.m. on January 14 at The Breakers Palm Beach and will transport guests back to the turn of the twentieth century, complete with magnificent hats, glittering gowns and more.
Organized by a gala committee and led by co-chairs Roberta Golub and Marcia Cohn, the evening will honor community philanthropists Susan and Ross Johnson and corporate partner PNC Bank.
“Our goal has been to create an entertainment experience for our guests that reflects the Theatre’s high production standards, yet also make sure that we’re raising as much money for the Theatre as possible,” Cohn said.
The event will feature a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by dinner, live auction and dancing the night away to the Powerhouse Band.
Nearly 400 supporters attended last season’s gala, which raised nearly a half million for the Theatre.
This year’s gala, however, is slated to be the biggest and most lavish celebration yet.
“Hello, Dolly! is the perfect show to inspire this year’s gala theme of ‘We’ve got elegance,’ because the show is reminiscent of days where elegance was synonymous with everyday glamour,” said Kathy Berman, the Theatre’s development director. “The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s gala is a great reason to get dressed up and enjoy an unforgettable evening for a great cause: the largest regional theater in South Florida, which wouldn’t be here without its generous supporters.”
Grand Benefactors of the event are Roberta and Harvey Golub, Bonnie Osher and John Osher. VIP sponsors include Joan and Allen Bildner, Mr. and Mrs. Richard J Katz, Jr., Jane F. Napier and Diane and James Perrella. Corporate sponsors include PNC Bank, Tiffany & Co., Braman BMW Jupiter, The Capital Grille, Saks Fifth Avenue and Wilmington Trust.
