As a non-profit performing arts center, The Ridgefield Playhouse, like any other non-profit organization, relies heavily on its annual fundraising events. And, thanks to generous Gala sponsors, you’re in for a treat! The Ridgefield Playhouse Fall Gala will not only feature an open bar, dinner, and one-of-a-kind auction items, the highlight of the evening will be a performance by Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, who will perform Broadway classics, standards and pop hits! Sponsors for this year’s Fall Gala are: the Berisford, Cox, Rabinowitz, Ross, & Stockel Families; Colonial Automobile Group & the Beylouni Family; Tauck and Wells Fargo Private Bank at the Diamond level. There is an anonymous donor at the Platinum level. The Gold Sponsors are Scott & Danielle Edwardson and Mr. & Mrs. Robert Kaufman. The Silver Sponsors are Eric Diefenbach & JK Brown, Daniela Sikora & Keitha Kinne and AllShows.com. Deb & Howard Bubb, Ann & Steve Carlson, and The Sawtelle Family are Bronze level sponsors.
