Cortland Repertory Theatre Holds Cabaret Night Fundraiser Tonight, 7/21
Cortland Repertory Theatre presents its very first "Cabaret Night" fundraiser, hosted by the CRT Board of Directors tonight, July 21 at the Little York Pavilion in Dwyer Memorial Park. Early Bird tickets are currently on sale for $35.00 until July 1, after which they will be raised to $40.00.
This fun, casual affair will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail buffet offering hearty appetizers, assorted seafood and carving stations, along with complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and a cash beer and wine bar.
During the evening, two fund raising events will take place concurrently with prizes donated by Central New York businesses and individuals: a silent auction and a "Tricky Tray" raffle, in which attendees may purchase multiple tickets to place in the "hat" beside the raffle prizes. At the conclusion of bidding, one winning ticket is drawn for each item. There is no limit to how many tickets one may put in each "hat".
Following the auction, attendees will adjourn to the theatre and will enjoy a "one-night-only cabaret" featuring performances by the cast of "CATS" and other CRT friends. This will be a unique evening, and will give attendees the chance to see the performers of "CATS" without their cat make-up and costumes!
Tricky tray and silent auction items include:
One of the newest versions of Apple's iPad
A 68-piece Oneida Stockholm stainless steel flatware set, valued at $1,245
Autographed Jets memorabilia
Passes to Disney World and Darien Lake
