Tony Award Party 6/6/15

This was a very nice event to benefit the Towle Youth Theater Ensemble. A "Tony Party" was held at the Briar Ridge Country Club (same time as the Tony Awards on TV), red carpet and all, with donations from sponsorship which was raffled off. Proceeds went to the TYTE.

I enjoyed the smiling faces of everyone who bought tickets and attended. Christi was able to photograph everyone while they walked the red carpet. Me, I took most of the candid photos. Enjoy the evening with us!

And the Tony goes to . . . well, we had our chance to vote for our favorites in each of the categories before the The Tony Awards went on TV. The photo above and the next two below are of the team who were looking at our ballots to see who came the closest. (The photo below is Kevin taking peak on the screen as the awards were announced.)

As long as I have been donating my photography time to the Towle Theater, and paying my own way to musicals, plays, and this event, it never crossed my mind that Christi and I would ever have a monetary return as we did tonight. Christi bought raffle tickets and placed them in the box for some of the sponsored gifts. She won the gift card from Albert's Diamond Jewelers! This made our year . . .

Needless to say both Christi and I are proud to support the Towle Theater and the Towle Youth Theatre Ensemble. The art of musicals and plays help us to remember who we are . . . to remember where we came from. This art, combined with all the other forms of art, define humanity. We need to maintain, remember, create, our humanity. We need to grow. We do this through our arts. The next time you go see a musical or play at the Towle, remember this. How has art changed your life? How can you support the Towle Theater!
