The money raised by this event is for a memorial scholarship in Helen Witty's name, awarded to theatre students who embody Helen's love of theatre and passion for life as well as their academic and community service achievements.
Now, in 2015, the Helen Marie Witty Memorial Scholarship will receive its funding by hosting a charity gala at Fairchild Tropical Gardens. The scholarship not only benefits Miami Palmetto students, but has grown to include theatre students all across the Miami area who lead by example and steer away from destructive decisions in all aspects of their lives. 25% of the money we raise will be appropriated for a permanent memorial to Helen in upcoming renovation of the Miami Palmetto Senior High School Auditorium.
The goal is to have 100-150 people in attendance and raise $20,000 to keep the scholarship running for the next four years. The event will take place on February 20, 2015 from 7-11 pm at the Garden House in Fairchild Tropical Gardens. This Gala will include a silent auction and entertainment with live cabaret-style student performances from the most talented students in the Miami-area, as well as honor past recipients of the Helen Marie Witty scholarship.
We hope you can attend and participate. You can also donate to the Helen Marie Witty Memorial Scholarship: CLICK HERE.
