Night at the Derby – Fall Gala 2019
November 14, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST$150
Join us at The All-American Boys Chorus’ 2019 Fall Gala, “Night at the Derby”. The Gala will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach. Guests will be treated to a fun, glamorous evening, beginning with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by a gourmet dinner, live auction, and entertainment by the internationally ac-claimed All-American Boys Chorus. Like many non-profit organizations, tuition and performance fees do not cover all of TAABC’s expenses. A revenue gap of approximately 40% needs to be covered through fundraising. We rely on generous donors such as you and your organization to support our mission and join us in transforming boys’ lives through the power of music. We respectfully request your consideration of underwriting or sponsoring our 2019 Fall Gala in support of our efforts to provide our Chorus Program for all boys, regardless of their circumstances. Please feel free to contact me at 714.361.3920 x105 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about our gala or would like to learn more about our programs. Your generosity inspires great achievement! Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at our 2019 Fall Gala!
Each year the All-American Boys Chorus recognizes individuals or organizations with awards for positive and lasting contributions to America or the world. These Great American Awards acknowledge excellence in such areas as achievement, leadership, philanthropy, compassion, and citizenship. Award recipients are determined by a selection committee appointed by the Board of Directors. The Awards are presented each year at the All-American Boys Chorus Fall Gala.
This year we are pleased to have two Great American Honorees! Mr. David Benoit and Mr. David Pyle. David Benoit is a renowned jazz pianist from Southern California who is a champion of local arts groups in his community.
