PURPOSE. PASSION. PROGRESS. was a great success! 

Nearly 320 people attended Northlight’s fundraising gala on October 6 at Theatre on the Lake.  The dark and stormy night did not keep people from having a fabulous time — including bidding in the silent auction filled with fun and unique experiences, enjoying musical performances from the outstanding Rashada Dawan, and participating in the live auction and paddle raise, masterfully led by Northlight Artistic Director BJ Jones and Master of Ceremonies Karen Jordan, of ABC7 Weekend news.

The event raised close to $350,000 for Northlight’s expansive education and community engagement programs. Hats off to Northlight Gala Chairs, Julie Chernoff, and Susie McMonagle, for staging such a successful event for the theatre!
