LeAnn Rimes to Headline Ridgefield Playhouse's 13th Anniversary Gala, 11/22
One of the most popular and critically-acclaimed singers of our time whose stellar career was launched when she was just 13 with the Platinum hit single "Blue", American country-pop singer/songwriter LeAnn Rimes is coming to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, November 22, to celebrate the 13th Anniversary of this non-profit performing arts center. LeAnn Rimes is making The Ridgefield Playhouse one of the first stateside stops on her world tour in support of her most personal album yet, Spitfire. Some of LeAnn Rimes' best-known hits are "How Do I Live?", "Can't Fight the Moonlight" and "Life Goes On". With a versatile vocal style similar to that of Patsy Cline, LeAnn was the youngest recipient of a Grammy Award and was also the first country recording artist to win in the "Best New Artist" category. The Gala festivities include dinner-by-the-bite with open bar and a silent auction beginning at 5:30 p.m. An open bar for non-gala ticket holders starts at 7:15 p.m. LeAnn Rimes takes the stage after a live auction at 8 p.m. A pair of Allison Stockel-inspired Inside-out Burmese pinky-red 4-carat ruby hoop earrings (2-inch diameter) set in 14-carat white gold created especially for the Gala by Larry Seegers of JEMS in Katonah, NY will be a coveted live auction item. Lori Berisford and Elaine Cox, the 2013 Gala Honorees, and the Arts Volunteer Award recipient Alex Fischetti, will be honored on stage before LeAnn Rimes' performance. This year's Gala is underwritten by Campari America and is being sponsored by AllShows.com, Bliss Lawyers, Trish Breede and Family, Colonial Automobile Group ~ Ford, Subaru, Mazda ~ DelBello, Donnellan, Weingarten, Wise & Wiederkehr LLP, Rob and Elizabeth Ellis, Fairfield County Bank, Scott Schneider and The Ridgefield Playhouse Board of Directors with special thanks to Campari America, Glen Gate Pool & Property and Pepsi, with media sponsor KICKS 105.5fm Today's Best Country. ?
