On May 16, 2015 the State Theatre Benefit Gala featured legendary Beach Boy Brian Wilson in concert! An enthusiastic crowd welcomed Brian Wilson to New Brunswick as he performed an incredible show with his band—playing all of the Beach Boys hits, such as “Help Me Rhonda,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “In My Room,” and “Good Vibrations.”
The State Theatre Gala is an annual event—the biggest fundraiser that we hold each season. Proceeds from the Benefit Gala support the Theatre’s acclaimed artistic and educational programs. This year’s Gala was the highest-grossing fundraiser in its 27 year history—the second year in a row that we have broken records for Gala proceeds. Last year, the Benefit Gala raised more than $765,000, and the 2015 Gala shattered that record by raising over $803,000!
We send a big thank you to each individual or organization that supported the Gala by attending the event and performance, donating to our Silent Auction and Wine Pull, purchasing 50/50 tickets, etc. And last, but most importantly, we send our sincere gratitude and thanks to the entire Gala Committee and Board of Trustees for their incredible support and dedication to making this event a resounding success.
