Aurora Fox Theatre's 28th Annual Gala Benefit
6 p.m. and offers you the opportunity to show your support for the arts in Aurora with
drinks, dinner, eclectic silent auction, and—back by popular demand—a sampling from each
show in the upcoming season! Sponsorship levels include:
Event Sponsor: ($1,000) Your organization will truly be what they call in the theater trade, an angel. On this opening night you and nine of your guests will attend a professionally catered event including carefully matched premium wines. Of course, your company’s name and logo will receive the most prominent display in the Plaza area, in the program, in the Chamber newsletter, and on the sponsor plaque in the Historic Fox. After food and drinks, nine of the best seats in the house will be set aside for you to enjoy a variety of performances by the Aurora Fox Theater Company.
Of course, you will be recognized both from the theater stage and prior to the curtain going up, as the primary event supporter. In addition, you’ll receive a special ticket package for future performances, and your name will be prominently listed in all future Aurora Fox programs during the season.
THE PRODUCER: ($600) On this glittering opening night you and five other guests will attend a professionally catered event featuring fine Italian cuisine by Carrabba’s Italian Grill, served with carefully matched premium wines. Your company’s name and logo will be prominently displayed in the Plaza area, in the program, in the Chamber newsletter, and on the sponsor plaque in the Historic Fox. After food and drinks, six of the best seats in the house will be set aside for you to enjoy a series of performances by the Aurora Fox Theater Company. Of course, you will be recognized both from the theater stage and prior to the curtain going up, as a prime supporter. In addition, you’ll receive a company ticket package for a future performance, and your name will be prominently listed in all future Aurora Fox programs during the season.
THE DIRECTOR: ($400) On opening night you and three others will enjoy superb Carrabba’s cuisine and fine wine on the Plaza. Your company name and logo will be prominently displayed in the theater. You will also be recognized from the Fox stage. You will be listed in all programs throughout the season. And you will have four reserved seats right up front in the Fox for the gala season opener.
THE STAR: ($200) For you and one other, you’ll join in the festivities of a Carrabba’s prepared pre-play event including a variety of premium wines. Your company name will be displayed on the program that night and throughout the season and you will enjoy the performance from two reserved seats that are guaranteed to be some of the best in the house.
Once again this year, the extremely popular sampling of a whole season’s shows will be presented on this special evening, Sept. 8. You’ll see excerpts from A Christmas Carol, Wooden Snowflakes, Consider the Oyster, The Color Purple and a special extended preview of the season premier of the very funny Steve Martin comedy, Picasso at the Lapin Agile.
The plaza area, decorated in a theme in keeping with the evening’s performance, may be reached through the Fox and opens with the Silent Auction at 6:00 p.m. A beautifully prepared and presented food and wine buffet will be available for your dining pleasure in this unique outdoor setting. Curtain rises at 8 p.m. A special dessert and gourmet coffee will be served on the Plaza following the play. Black tie is encouraged, but not, of course, required. Individual tickets are $50.00.
The Historic Aurora Fox Arts Center is located in the center of Original Aurora at 9900 East Colfax Avenue. Free parking is conveniently located behind the Fox and in the MLK Library lot.
