Scarlet Sock Foundation’s Virtual Third Annual Gala

WHAT: Scarlet Sock Foundation’s Virtual Third Annual Gala
WHEN: Sunday March 21 2021; 7:00-8:00 PM EST
WHERE: Zoom / Online. Email: by March 19 to receive the link

We missed being together last year and want to update you on all the great work your support made possible during the last two years. Scarlet Sock Foundation had a banner first year funding social justice theater programming that made a difference across the Pioneer Valley. Then, despite a year that made live, in-person theater impossible, we were still able to foster curiosity, self-confidence and inclusion for students in the performing arts. That's what social justice theater is all about!

Come join us to celebrate our inaugural grant recipients and see excerpts from some of them including The Performance Project, WAM Theatre and Enchanted Circle Theater. We will also be highlighting 2020’s recipients including Serious Play! and The Drama Studio in Springfield.

Scarlet Sock Foundation was founded in memory of Laura DiPillo who passionately believed that all people deserve to be included and heard. That is why we support social justice theater, which aims to raise awareness about social issues through the performing arts.

During the program, which is free to attend, you’ll be invited to make a donation to Scarlet Sock Foundation.
