The Alley Will Re-Open at 615 Texas Avenue with Deck the Trees,
a Season of Giving
With the realization of Harvey, much has changed for so many in our city, including the Alley Theatre which was impacted significantly as a result of the devastating floods due in August.
In the aftermath of the flood event, we took a hard look at our plans and made the decision to postpone Wilder Things until next fall and combine our fundraising efforts into one BIG event entitled Deck the Trees . . . A Season of Giving.
Together with Co-chairs Roger Aksamit, Maria Wyckoff Boyce and Mark Allan Smith, and the Alley Theatre Board of Directors, our annual Deck the Trees event is now a recovery and sustainability funraiser. The newly expanded event will increase in both reach and goal to make up for the shortfall of funds the Alley would have benefitted from by hosting Wilder Things.
The new event name speaks to all those who continue to give selflessly of their time, talent and resources to the Alley during this time of unrest. The event will culminate on November 17th with the Alley Theatre’s re-opening and production of A Christmas Carol A Ghost Story of Christmas and festive Tree Lighting Ceremony. We anticipate record attendance as board members, donors, city officials and first responders of the Alley will be invited.
Of course, participation is key. By sponsoring a tree, your gift will directly impact the recovery efforts of the Alley, as well as sustain our educational and artistic initiatives that remain so vital to our city. Sponsorship levels have been added along with a new $2,500 level featuring 30” holiday wreaths. Underwriters will enjoy added benefits too, which are outlined in the link below. And, we are happy to announce new tree designers will participate this year as well as some of the best designers of seasons past.
So, please join us for this very special Season of Giving as we Deck the Trees at the Alley Theatre for the 11th consecutive year!
