The Arts Club is celebrating a spectacular milestone with its Bravo 50th Benefit, happening June 7th on Granville Island.

Bravo 50th Benefit for The Arts Club

artsclubbravo50Celebrate 50 years of artistic excellence at the Arts Club and help raise funds for the years to come.

The event will showcase artists, patrons, and community partners for a one-night-only stroll down memory lane. Saluting the past but looking into the future, all funds raised at this special evening go to the Arts Club’s youth and artistic development programs.

There will be a red carpet entrance starting at 7:00pm on Saturday, June 7th followed by a champagne toast with Vancouver’s favourite DJ, Red Robinson in the upper lobby between 7:30pm and 8:00pm. Hosted by Jackson Davies, Gabrielle Rose, Todd Talbot, and Deborah Williams, Cue the Memories will begin at 8:30am. This performance will highlight The Arts Club’s 50-year history with an all-star cast selected by Bill Millerd, Artistic Managing Director.

Cue the Memories, with Musical director Bruce Kellett and his combo, will include Leon Bibb, Ann Mortifee, Ruth Nichol, and Pat Rose from the original cast of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, joined by Sara-Jeanne Hosie, Warren Kimmel, Jane Mortifee, Zachary Stevenson, Sibel Thrasher, as well as special surprise appearances and songs from Ain’t Misbehavin’, Cabaret, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Mary Poppins, Les Misérables, Red Rock Diner, and Reflections on Crooked Walking.*

The party will continue at the Backstage Lounge at 10:30pm with a live band fronted by Zachary Stevenson (Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story) along with dancing, celebratory cocktails, late-night treats, and a silent auction.

Seating is limited for this special occasion so make sure to get your tickets now. They can be puchased for $150 for the show and after-party, for which you will receive a $100 tax receipt. Tax receipts will be issued after the event.
