Virginia Rep's "Anything Goes" Gala

Virginia Repertory Theatre's annual "Anything Goes" Gala this past January was an elegant, chic affair that not only was a great party, but also surpassed ALL previous years fundraising goals! Our team had the pleasure of working alongside the theatre's talented board committee and staff, together creating an impactful, exciting atmosphere for guests with the events "Opening Night" theme.  Thanks to the help of gracious sponsors, hosts and participants, and with staff working tirelessly behind the scenes, the Gala was able to bring in $400,000 for Virginia Rep!

The black and gold decor and candle lit ballroom provided a warm glow, and the perfect setting as we highlighted a variety of "Opening Nights" VA Rep produced over the decades.  Guests were greeted at the entryway with a display of costumed mannequins representing the incredible handiwork of Virginia Rep's designers.   A showcase from favorites Mary Poppins, River Ditty, and West Side Story were performed by Virginia Rep's award winning professional theatre artists.  The live auction led by Justin Swisher, did not disappoint and was thrilling for all!     

This organization has served Virginia for over 60 years- adults, children, families and schools- while contributing to the cultural, educational, and economic life of our city and region. We were thrilled to be a part of celebrating all they do with such a rewarding event that provides a fun evening and an even better addition to the Richmond community. We can't wait for next year!
