IVC's 25th Anniversary Celebration Kickoff
You're invited! We're going to be celebrating in style. On Friday evening, June 4, 2010, the PAC will be transformed into a glitzy New York City theatre off Times Square. At 6 PM you will walk up a red carpet into a glamorous lobby filled with twinkling lights and glittering stars, where you will be greeted with glasses of cold champagne and hot and cold appetizers served by professional wait staff from Hyatt Regency Catering. You will wander through the lobby and adjacent tent sipping wine and signature "Laser" martinis from one of our three full service bars, eating gourmet small plates from our Little Italy pasta and California greens stations, schmoozing and listening to members of the IVC Jazz Ensemble playing some of their favorite musical selections.
There will be a variety of live and silent auction items to bid on, including fine art, wine and some fantastic travel opportunities. Then, at 8 PM, we will all move into the theatre for a fast-moving, razzle-dazzle salute to the hottest shows on Broadway, produced and directed by Professor Ron Manuel-Ellison and featuring IVC’s very own student performers, with a little help from some surprise alumni guests.
After the show, we will all move back to the tent and lobby area to sample gourmet Starbucks dessert coffees and teas and warm jumbo home-style cookies at the Hyatt’s Afterglow Coffee Bar. Members of the Jazz Ensemble will again provide music and you will have a chance to have your photo snapped by a professional photographer with members of the “Broadway Stars” cast. Then, collect your auction items and call it a night or stay for the post-performance after-party.
Please save the date! This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity.
