Sunday, June 4th, 2017, we celebrated Eat, Drink, and Be Jolly for the Folly, a fundraiser for our general operations fund. This fundraiser is an amazing way for us to celebrate the Folly’s years of success with our patrons, donors, and Board of Directors that love the acts and music that come to the Folly’s historic stage.
This year was especially exciting as we were joined by local musician & Billboard Chart Topper Max Groove, who provided us with upbeat and smooth jazz to help set the tone of the event. With over around 150 people joining us in the historic home of Brian Williams in Hyde Park, we were able to raise over $43,000 to help cover the costs of the daily operating expenses of the Folly Theater. We were also joined by Anne’s Catering that provided us with all the picnic fixin’s including fried chicken, pulled pork sliders, and some delicious (possibly alcoholic) lemonade! A special thanks also goes out to our friends at Gregory’s Fine Floral who provided all the floral arrangements used at the event! Simply beautiful!
We even received some great press coverage by KSHB local news with our very own Gale Tallis and Brian Williams chatting up the event!
Here are some of the fun photos from the event!
Finally, and most importantly, we want to give a shout out to all the sponsors of our wonderful event. We really couldn’t have accomplished this without you.
