Windhover Gala: Discover the Magic

Windhover Gala: Discover the Magic

August 10, 2023

Windhover Performing Arts Center is excited to announce our Annual Fundraising Gala on Wednesday, August 23rd from 5:00-9:00pm.  DISCOVER THE MAGIC is our theme. 

You and your friends are invited to attend an unforgettable magical evening on the beautiful Windhover grounds in Rockport, MA. By attending our Gala, you’ll not only be treated to delicious food, live music and modern dance, but you will also be supporting a cause that is close to our hearts. Your generous contribution to this Gala will directly benefit our non-profit organization and the artists whose work sustains it. This enables us to continue bringing the magic of outdoor theater and performing arts to our Cape Ann community.

The Gala promises to be an extraordinary affair, filled with delightful surprises, delectable cuisine, and the opportunity to connect with friends and supporters who share these interests. We invite you to help us make a lasting impact on the arts and cultural landscape of our community.

Upon arriving, folks will be greeted by live bluegrass and folk music played by Scott Moore and George Clements. Cocktails and a variety of wines and beers will be served by sommelier Paige Farrell who can guide you through the variety of wines we have selected. Next, you will be seated outside under Windhover’s tent canopy to enjoy a delicious catered three course dinner provided by beloved chef Melissa Donati, of the former Willow Rest in Gloucester. During the meal, there will be a featured special mini-dance performance by New York’s modern dance company Alison Cook Beatty and ensemble. Throughout the evening, American Songbook music and original jazz by musician and composer Joe Mulholland will take place on keyboard. Windhover inspires camaraderie, community and conversation on its bucolic grounds. This gathering takes place rain or shine.

Tickets are $125.00 and include the three course dinner, wine, beer, water, sparkling water, plus a featured private dance interlude and live music. Kindly reserve your tickets now before they run out:  Seating is not assigned, so guests can sit wherever they like under the tent. Please come experience the magic.

Warmest Wishes,
