We can't wait to celebrate our mission of D.R.E.A.M. with you! 

Here's some information to help you plan for our event! Buy tickets here.  


Attire: We recommend Black & White inspired Cocktail/Festive attire - whatever that means to you!

Seating: Unless you are one of our honorees, have purchased a group of tickets at one time, or indicated in some other way that you are a group of 8 or more and want to sit together, seating will be open and you will have choices between various options - open tables, cocktail style tables that accommodate up to 4, and some couches.  We want you to be comfortable but also to mingle!


We are thrilled to partner with Events by Joni, Amanti Vino, and Vanillamore for delicious food and drink.

Choices of passed hors d'oeuvres, a pasta bar with gourmet cheeses and toppings, and desserts crafted especially for Vanguard Theater Company!


Take home gifts from many local merchants, organizations, and theater partners.
