The Cortland Repertory Theatre Board of Directors invite everyone to "Come to the Cabaret!" as they host the very first "Cabaret Night" fundraiser on Saturday, July 21 at the Little York Pavilion in Dwyer Memorial Park. The evening will feature "one-night-only" cabaret performances featuring the cast members of the current main stage production of "Cats".
This fun, casual affair will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail buffet offering hearty appetizers, assorted seafood and carving stations, along with complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and a cash beer and wine bar. During the evening, two fund raising events will take place concurrently with prizes donated by Central New York businesses and individuals: a silent auction and a "Tricky Tray" raffle, in which attendees may purchase multiple tickets to place in the "hat" beside the raffle prizes. At the conclusion of bidding, one winning ticket is drawn for each item. There is no limit to how many tickets one may put in each "hat".
Following the auction, attendees will adjourn to the theatre to enjoy the performances by the cast of "CATS". This will be a unique evening, and will give attendees the chance to see the actors without their cat make-up and costumes!
An updated list of tricky tray and silent auction items include:
· One of the newest versions of Apple's iPad
· A 68-piece Oneida Stockholm stainless steel flatware set, valued at $1,245
