What: Alley Theatre's "Deck the Trees Celebration."
Where: In the Alley Theatre lobby.
The 411: Opening night of A Christmas Carol saw a seasonal transformation for the Alley Theatre when 26 Christmas trees, each individually decorated by designers, were unveiled. Before the curtain went up on the popular tale, more than 100 guests joined the party. Event sponsors and Alley patrons were invited to view the lighting of the trees while sipping cocktails (soft drinks for the kiddos) and sampling hors d'oeuvres. In its seventh year, the annual party raised a record $80,000.
Who: Event chair Peter Ragauss and wife Jennifer with their children, Andrew and Emily; Butch Mach with daughter Lilly; Barbara and Tom Gros; Dean Gladden, Beth and Britt Langford; Kathryn Ketelsen and Ann Stiles.
