A fabulous evening is planned inside Artpark’s huge Mainstage Theater featuring cocktails, dining, music and dancing set against the dramatic backdrop of the legendary theater. A unique silent auction will be highlighted by an array of distinctive gifts, original art, ticket packages and dazzling baskets, prior to a special stage welcome for the guests. All proceeds will be directed to 2011 season programming, free outdoor concerts, and the free family and children’s activities annually presented by Artpark & Company – the non-profit cultural organization that presents Artpark’s annual summer schedule.
“We at Artpark are proud of our past and excited about our future,” said Artpark & Company Chairman Chris Brown. “On behalf of the Board of Directors I invite everyone to be part of this exciting event at the site of Western New York’s premier Summer entertainment venue.”
