When: Saturday, April 2, 2011 5:30-9:30pm
Where: Empire Theatre, 114 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23220.Directions
What: This costume-optional formal event will be held in conjunction with our season finale, Honk!, and will prove to be a night for the whole family to remember. With a cocktail buffet, children’s activities, live music, an auction, costumed characters and more this event gives children the opportunity for a black tie night on the town with mom, dad and grandparents. This event has grown to be Richmond’s signature Family Gala with over 700 attendees each year and has raised over $700,000 in support of Theatre IV’s work with children.
What is this money used for?: All proceeds from each year’s Fairy Tale Ball are used to share Theatre IV’s nationally acclaimed programs with less advantaged families and schools, and to support our innovative health programs, including Hugs and Kisses, Virginia’s principal child sexual abuse prevention program since 1983. Proceeds help Theatre IV bring the arts to thousands of children and families from Virginia’s most challenged neighborhoods.
