Saturday night at Umstead Park United Church of Christ Raleigh, The Justice Theater Project hosted their 2nd Annual Send A Kid To Camp VIP Party. The fundraising event in support of Help Send A Kid To Camp featured food and drinks, a Silent Auction and performances by fabulous singers. Each summer JTP provides $10,000 in tuition assistance to Triangle families during the five weeks of professionally run youth summer theater camps.

Items up for grab in the Silent Auction included a $1,200 gourmet private chef dinner for 8 with wine pairing by Cordon Bleu trained chef Steve Day of Plates Kitchen and a weekend in New Bern with a boat charter for six.

 Attendees had their tastes satiated with a selection of beer, wines and a buffet of dishes catered by Catfish Row, which they enjoyed inside the beautiful lobby area and under a large outdoor tent and with overhead coverage in case of stray rain. The proceedings were then transitioned into the theater where the event was capped off by a performance of George Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess”, currently on stage at The Justice Theater Project through June 25. 

Led by Master of Ceremonies, Rozlyn Sorrell, five JTP favorites performed 2 songs each.
