Every year, we hold a special Volunteers and Artists Appreciation gala, bringing together everyone who made that season possible. We feed them (of course), and highlight a few of that year’s contributors:

– Crown Jewel: Exceptional recognition (given only some years)
– Golden Gavel
: Board member of the year
– Golden Ivy
: Volunteer of the year
– “Sparky” Award
: Someone who particularly helped out in a pinch
– Bard in Action
: Special recognition of artists, technicians, or staff.
