Notable Moments: Supporters enjoyed a creative, culinary-inspired evening supporting the Herberger Theater’s youth education and community engagement programs. After a cocktail hour at the theater featuring a silent and live auction, guests got a sneak peek at the world premiere of “Mad Hatter: The Musical.” After the performance, the big reveal to find out where each “table sponsor” and their guests would be dining at was announced from stage. From there, everyone headed to one of 23 restaurants for a three-course meal paired with wine for an intimate evening with friends while supporting the arts!
