Starlight Theatre Annual Gala
||Planning is already under way for Starlight Theatre’s 29th Annual Benefit Gala!
Please note an important change: From 2015 forward, the Annual Starlight Gala will be held in September, a change from previous years.
Mark your calendars for Saturday night, September 26, to attend this highly anticipated and entertaining annual event. Serving as Co-Chairs of the 29th Annual Starlight Benefit Gala are Cliff Illig, chairman and co-founder of Cerner Corp., and his wife, Bonne. The evening will recognize our 2015 Star Award honorees, Peter and Michelle deSilva.
Guests of Starlight’s Annual Benefit Gala enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres under the stars, a delicious multi-course dinner in the stage house, and an original theatrical performance produced by EPIC Events, a Starlight subsidiary. The event also honors a local “Star” for his or her commitment to Starlight and support of important causes throughout our community. Guests conclude their night with an after-party in Starlight’s Applause Club.
The 2014 Starlight Gala netted $504,251 to support Starlight’s education and outreach efforts, Broadway programming and theatre operations. We remain grateful to Russ and Debbie Welsh, 2014 Gala Co-Chairs, for their leadership raising these critical funds. With their help and the support of our many sponsors and guests, Starlight Theatre will remain a treasured Midwest destination for years to come.
