Now in its third year, Thea Foundation's Into the Blue fundraising gala is back, and with a whole new attitude.
Thea is shaking things up this year for the Saturday, April 29 event. Not only will it take place at a new location — the Center for the Humanities and Arts at Pulaski Technical College — but, according to organizers, the ambience, the format and even the ticket price are all getting a makeover.
But true to form, the night will celebrate the foundation's achievements with performances from past scholarship winners. Guests will enjoy the likes of Little Rock natives Isaiah Bailey and Allison Stearns (pictured above) and many more.
The night calls for cocktail attire and will include a cocktail dinner buffet and full bar to go with the show-stopping entertainment.
Also returning to this year's event will be the presentation of the second annual Pillar of the Arts Award to the one and only Judy Tenenbaum.
The mission of the foundation is "to advocate the importance of the arts in the development of Arkansas' youth," which it does by providing artistic programs and scholarships to students across the state.
