SUNDAY SUPPER WITH THE STARS

A Virtual Celebration and Fundraiser to Benefit Cal Performances
Sunday, May 23, 2021

5 PM VIP Pre-Program Party
6 PM Main Event

THE CAL PERFORMANCES BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND SPECIAL EVENTS COMMITTEE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US for a virtual gathering and star-studded evening in recognition of the artists, producers, and donors who make our Cal Performances at Home streaming series possible. Let us come together to raise a celebratory toast to the enduring power and beauty of the performing arts!

The evening will begin with a VIP pre-program Zoom event. Sponsors and their guests will gather in private breakout rooms for virtual supper clubs and enjoy visits from favorite Cal Performances artists and other engaging personalities. This will be followed by an exclusive, one-night-only streaming presentation hosted by the charismatic American soprano Christine Goerke and featuring artists drawn from the Cal Performances at Home spring season. As the warm and witty Ms. Goerke entertains and provides context for the performances, we will be treated to a few surprise cameo appearances!

Now, more than ever, the work of Cal Performances is essential to the recovery of the performing arts and arts education, and this fundraiser is a timely opportunity to amplify your impact. Every new donation dollar that exceeds your giving from the previous fiscal year will be matched 100% by an anonymous donor. For new donors, your entire gift will be matched.

Thank you for supporting this special event and the mission of Cal Performances. We hope to see you there!

CO-CHAIRS   Helen Meyer, Maris Meyerson, Sara E. Wilson

COMMITTEE   Naniette Coleman, Marianne Geagea, Cary Koh, Chris Lauer, Sylvia Lindsey, Jen Lyons, Leigh Teece, Caroline Winnett
