Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC), a non-profit organization working to bring innovative and cutting-edge entertainment and arts education to the East End will host its annual gala fundraiser A Summer Affair on August 13th at a private waterfront Remsenburg estate.
Facing a critical and vast gap in the performing arts space from the COVID-19 pandemic, WHBPAC is working to close that gap by bringing world-class arts entertainment, outreach, and music and arts education to the greater Hamptons community. Since its inception in 1997, the organization welcomes over 10,000 students each year through its School Day Performances, engaging Family Friendly entertainment, to nurturing, skill-based Performing Arts Camps, to innovative Classes and Workshops.
WHBPAC remains committed to providing people with opportunities to fall in love with the arts and discover the joy of live performance and its capacity to build community. The theatre’s goal is to ignite the creative spirit in all people, spark a love of learning, and reinforce important life skills through the arts.
The “summer chic” gala will feature delectable food and beverages, one of a kind auctions, dancing to the sounds of Square Feeet as they pay homage to rock music of the sixties and seventies with The Beatles Meet the Queen…and Something in Between, to support the tireless work of Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.
“For the last two decades, Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center has provided critical programming and educational opportunities to thousands of students of all ages,” says Executive Director Julienne Penza-Boone. “Our mission is propelled forward each year by people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to support the theatre and the incredible work of our dedicated staff and teachers. But in order to stay in business, we must raise more than half of our budget each year since ticket sales only cover half of the costs of running the theater.”
