The Under the Lights Virtual Gala is free of cost and open to all members of Usdan's community. Kids are encouraged to attend.
This special fundraising event will include performances from our talented students and alumni plus much more. Usdan's mission is to instill in young people the desire and drive to creatively contribute to the world now and for the rest of their lives. This year's theme, Under the Lights, reminds us that even with the limitations of coronavirus, the show must go on.
While the event is free for all attendees, sponsorship opportunities are available and there will be a chance to donate during the event. Funds raised can help us sustain many of our core needs, including scholarships and the restoration of the Lemberg Theater, a staple of Usdan's campus.
Kindly RSVP by Monday, June 15, 2020
Direct links to Usdan's YouTube and Facebook livestreams will be sent once registration is complete. All who RSVP will have access to special pre-event content.
