Patrons will be whisked away to a seated multi-course, plated dinner showcasing local cuisine by Bitterroot, Black Bear Bread Company, Emeril’s Coastal, and Ovide. Throughout the evening guests will delight in craft cocktails, spirits, and local brews poured by Better Together Beverage including Campesino Rum, Distillery 98, Good Clean Wine, Grayton Beer Company, and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company, courtesy of Step One Automotive Group.
Attendees will have the opportunity to peruse and bid on a plethora of silent auction items featuring jewelry, gift baskets, hotel stays, and much more. The evening will conclude with a sweet treat by Kilwins Ice Cream and Fudge courtesy of the Hahn Family and a special celebration performance on the main stage, sponsored by Bedsole Wealth Management Group at Raymond James.
"We are so excited to celebrate our tenth season with everyone in the community who has supported us and inspired us along the way,” said Nathanael Fisher.
All funds raised through ticket sales, donations, and silent auction purchases will go directly to ECTC and its continued mission to enrich and entertain the Emerald Coast community through professional and educational theatre. When creating the company, the Fishers wanted a place to inspire, educate, and empower the community and artists of all ages. Their goal is to achieve the highest level of cultural excellence through collaboration, productions, and educational programs that promote lifelong learning and provide excellent, professional theatre in the Emerald Coast Community. This event commemorates their impact on the community and their decade of service, while simultaneously looking ahead to the future and their continued efforts to support, promote, and establish the Emerald Coast as a leader and proponent of the cultural arts.
