Join us for a memorable country western experience at our annual fundraising benefit on Friday, October 19, 2018, from 7pm-11pm at The Music Hall.

Evening will include live performances by The Mammals and CC & The Boys with line dancing provided by Fred Astaire Dance Studios. The menu is generously provided by Pik Nik BBQ, Ruth’s Chris, RiverMarket & Saw Mill Tavern. ‘Boots & Bling’ attire encouraged.

WHY we need your support:

We’re a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving our community by presenting world-class musicians and performing artists right here in Westchester, offering theater education opportunities for young people, providing community outreach efforts to make the arts accessible to diverse audiences, and proving our historic, landmark theater can be a showcase for renewable energy! Ticket sales only cover a portion of the theater’s annual operating costs. Support of our annual benefit party is essential to ensuring the long-term success of The Music Hall and the new Music Hall Academy.

Please know that funds from first-time contributors or contribution increases from existing donors are eligible for a match from the ArtsWestchester 2018 Challenge Grant.
