UPCOMING EVENTS

The Smith College Club of New York City will hold its annual scholarship benefit event on Thurs., May 11th 2006 at 8pm.

This year’s theatre benefit will feature Connor McPherson’s Shining City starring Brian F. O’Byrne and Oliver Platt at Manhattan Theatre Club’s newly renovated Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

Patrons ($250 per ticket) will receive priority orchestra tickets and Supporters ($150 per ticket) will receive secondary orchestra seats or mezzanine seats to this critically acclaimed production followed by a talk -back organized by Florie Seery ’83, now the MTC’s general manager. In addition to priority seating, Patrons will be treated to a pre-theatre cocktail reception from 6 – 7.30 pm followed by bus transportation to the theatre.

This evening promises to be a fun-filled reunion for local Smith alums and an opportunity to view one of the season’s most anticipated theatre productions. Most importantly, the funds we raise from this event will enable exceptional young women to attend Smith College. Last year’s donations benefited seven students from area high schools all of whom genuinely appreciate our support, including this woman from the Class of ‘08:

"...I am from Brooklyn, New York, and I decided to come to Smith College because I wanted a space where I could develop myself as a woman through academics and life experiences. Currently, I am a government major with a concentration in international relations. I have been able to exercise my leadership skills in the Student Government Body as Vice President of the sophomore class as well as participate in programs such as the Phoebe Lewis Leadership Program. These opportunities would not have been available to me if it was not for your generous donations. Thank you for making my experience at Smith College fruitful

NOW IS THE TIME to order your tickets for this event. We have already purchased tickets and must sell them. We encourage you to bring family and friends, and if you cannot attend, please consider making a donation or purchasing a ticket for a friend. Make your check payable to The Smith College Club of New York City Scholarship Fund, PO Box 8418, FDR Station, New York, NY 10150-8418. Don’t forget that your donation qualifies for your employer’s matching gift program.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, May 11th.
