Hearts for Performing Arts
What: Party on the Stage
Where: Bass Performance Hall
The 411: Nearly 200 young professionals gathered on the Bass Hall stage to help kick off Performing Arts Fort Worth's new Young Patrons Club.
Local singer-songwriters Sam Anderson and Danni & Kris, both featured on the upcoming Texas Crossroads music series, performed for the partygoers as they sipped plenty of bubbly.
Guests noshed on bites like belly bao buns, chicken gyoza, and veggie dumplings provided and prepped by Hao Tran of catering company Lost in the Sauce and chef Victor Villarreal of Savor Culinary Services. As a special sweet treat, ice cream shop Gypsy Scoops wheeled in their colorful cart and scooped out a half-dozen flavors of ice cream.
Dione Kennedy, president and CEO of PAFW, personally welcomed guests. PAFW board chairman Elaine Agather and memberships-sponsorships manager Emily Galey encouraged attendees to get involved.
A $50 membership to the just-launched Young Patrons Club ($90 for couples) includes discounted ticket offers to select PAFW shows at Bass Hall and McDavid Studio, access to members-only special events, pre-show cocktail receptions, and exclusive pre-sale ticket offers. One-hundred percent the annual membership fee goes to providing show tickets to local students. For more information, visit the group's website.
