The Herberger Theater Center is the stage for Valley Youth Theatre’s annual fundraising event, “VYTal Affair” on Saturday, Aug. 22 beginning at 5:30 p m.
The evening, which includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, silent and live auctions, and a musical performance by stars of VYT, also honors this year’s VYTALITY Award recipients, Gwen and Doug Parker and Gammage and Burnham PLC.
The annual event is an opportunity to mingle and support a local nonprofit as well as experience the talent of the young stars of VYT.
Ticket prices are $250 or $125 depending on seating for the performance.
“This is our 16th year presenting ‘VYTal Affair,’ our premier fundraising event,” says Bobb Cooper, director of Valley Youth Theatre.
“Not only does Valley Youth Theatre offer the opportunity to perform, but most importantly, we offer a safe, supportive, positive environment in which youth learn time management, teamwork, presentation skills, and build self esteem. The funds raised at ‘VYTal Affair’ are indeed vital to our operation so that we may continue to inspire children to be the best that they can be!”
