In making the announcement Susan said, “Every year, around this time, we host a fundraising event that helps us maintain our operations and programming and education offerings year round. As a not-for-profit arts organization, Ruth Eckerd Hall relies on ticket sales and contributions to fulfill our mission. In our most challenging year yet, our fundraising efforts are more crucial than ever, our main stages have been dark for many months due to the global pandemic, diminishing income drastically.”
