Today, we finish up our fun series leading up to Saturday’s big “Saturday Night Alive” gala, which is expected to raise up to $1 million for the DCPA’s Education programs. In this series, we call your attention to the SNA committee chairs who make the gala happen.
Up next: US Bank President Hassan Salem, who is serving as co-Corporate Chair for Saturday Night Alive. Salem grew up in Dubai and moved to Colorado to raise a family after graduating from college.
“The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is one of those crown jewels that does so much to provide a wealth of educational programs for our community that it was just natural for us to help that organization become even that much more important in this community,” Salem says.
Last year, the DCPA’s Education Division engaged more than 68,000 students of all ages.
Jessie Mueller and Jarrod Spector, stars of the Tony Award-nominated hit Broadway musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, will share the stage March 7 as co-headliners of this year’s Saturday Night Alive fundraiser. Mueller won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, and Spector was nominated for Best Actor.
