Today, we continue our fun daily video 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 committee chairs who make the gala happen. First up: Susan Stiff, area Director of Public Relations for Starwood Hotels and Resorts, including the downtown Westin Hotel; chair for the 2015 Saturday Night Alive fundraiser for DCPA Education … and former high-school pom-pom girl.
Stiff vividly remembers going to The Nutcracker as a child with her Aunt Dorothy, who was wearing a fox boa -… who talked to Susan. She swears.
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.
