Supporters and friends will come together virtually for a high-spirited evening of entertainment, education, and inspiration. Sweet Taste of the Arts, our annual fundraiser event, provides opportunities to support the work of PassinArt: A Theatre Company. Also, we will honor four individuals for their achievements and contributions to theatre, music, dance, and visual arts. Individuals receiving awards for excellence in cultural arts are Alan Alexander, Julianne Johnson-Weiss, Kemba Shannon, and Roberta Wong.

Exciting performances by LOCAL artists, inspiring STORIES by special guests, and an abundance of AUCTION items to bid on, such as local weekend getaways, beautiful art to decorate your space, exquisite wines, and much more – to support PassinArt!
