HEARTS will honor Allison Freidman and Stacey Medford at The Red Party on Thursday, Feb. 8. Allison and Stacey are the founders of Curtains Up: The After School Musical Theater Experience which is a district-wide grant funded by HEARTS since 2014. Hundreds of fourth and fifth-grade students have had the opportunity to perform in a full-scale musical production under the expert guidance of Ms. Friedman and Ms. Medford. Damon Gersh and Sherri Suzzan will present HEARTS Annual Founder’s Award for outstanding volunteerism to Elyse Luray and Erika Cooper, who have been co-chairs of PortFest’s silent auction since 2011.
At The Red Party, a video journal will be displaying congratulatory “valentines” for our honorees (Interested in sending a “valentine”? Call 917-544-3523).
The Red Party will be held at the picturesque Port Washington Yacht Club at 1 Yacht Club Drive from 7 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 8. Proceeds from The Red Party will benefit HEARTS’ mission to support the arts in the Port Washington community and in Port Washington’s schools.
The Bach to Rock Staff Band, a talented professional band comprised solely of teachers from the Bach to Rock music school in Port Washington will get the party rocking. Utilizing years of experience as touring pros, recording artists and incredibly talented music teachers, the band plays all styles of music ranging from current and classic pop and rock to jazz, soul, classical and more.
The Red Party is the only ticket in town where you can celebrate the arts while supporting arts programming. Don’t forget to wear a “splash of red” and come ready to sample hors-d’oeuvres and enjoy the open wine bar along with an assortment of beers. There will also be an opportunity to bid on fun and unique art and music inspired raffles.
