The 2010 Helen Hayes Star Gala raised awareness about the importance of DC’s theatre community- while providing an elegant night out.
Theatre aficionados from throughout the District stepped out recently to demonstrate their support for the Washington art scene at the 2010 Helen Hayes Star Gala. Held at the Four Seasons, the Gala has long been raising awareness about and bolstering attendance for DC theatre. Though it maintained its central purpose, this year’s gala added pizazz. A live auction, hosted by Sebastian Clarke of Doyle New York and Antiques Roadshow, was one of the night’s most appealing additions. Who wouldn’t love the chance to bid on a vacation to India and support the arts simultaneously? Neighborhood Theatre Raffles, which offered guests the chance to win tickets to shows in their neighborhood, were another exciting addition to the night.
