The Mountain Play will present their annual fall fundraising gala on Nov. 10, starting at 5 p.m., at the Hoytt Theater at Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael. This year’s event is “Rock, Roll & Broadway,” a musical celebration to benefit the 2019 Mountain Play production of “Grease.” The evening will feature a champagne and wine reception, cocktail supper buffet, silent and live auction, followed by more than 20 Bay Area artists performing songs from Broadway and beyond. Above are performers from last year’s fall fundraising event.
The annual fall benefit kicks off the production season, helping raise much-needed funds to begin work on the spring 2019 production of “Grease.” Pictured are guests at last year’s event, enthusiastically bidding on the Fund-a-Need portion of the 2018 gala. For information and tickets for the Nov. 10 event, call (415) 383-1100. -Photos by Gary Ferber
Marin Charitable held a fundraiser on Nov. 3 at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley that raised more than $70,000 for local groups that offer critical support, education and enrichment for Marin youth of middle and high school age who have limited opportunities. Approximately 250 people danced and rocked the night away to Neil Diamond tribute band Super Diamond. The band posed with event co-chairs Liz Harrell (left) and Jessica Berry. -Photo by Jarett Skeffington
