“I grew up at Elitch’s and heard the stories of the performers who came through the theater from my dad, who was an usher there in the ’50s,” says Kirk Scheitler, board president of the Historic Elitch Gardens Theatre nonprofit.
Tonight’s event, which features wine, snacks and live music set inside the beautiful Highland’s Garden Cafe, 3927 West 32nd Avenue, seeks to raise money to bring the grandeur back to the hundred-year-old stage. It will also serve as a donation collection for Colorado Gives Day, which supports like-minded nonprofits across the state.
Tickets for the benefit are $35 and must be purchased in advance at www.historicelitchtheatre.org. All proceeds will go to the restoration and preservation of the Historic Elitch Gardens Theatre.
