Our first virtual event "Raise a Glass to Renaissance – Pajama Party Edition" took place on June 5th, 2020, and it was a success in more ways than one. We are grateful to all who showed up to honor the accomplishments of our honorees, Marti Gobel and Patti Keating Kahn – two incredible Renaissance women who have made an indelible mark on our community.
This heartfelt celebration featured videos that showcased Marti’s and Patti’s outstanding work, and wonderful performances by artists from our community.
We are happy to share that thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we exceeded our goal for the event by 150%! This funding will help sustain us during a period of uncertainty, as we find safe, creative ways to share bold, provocative and relevant stories you won’t hear anywhere else. Our commitment to telling the stories of people whose voices are often kept silent is unwavering and we thank our donors and supporters for staying by our side.
These videos were created for our virtual event to refelct the spirit of our mission and to honor outstanding supporter Patti Keating Kahn and outstanding artist Marti Gobel. They both have made a difference on Renaissance Theaterworks and the Milwaukee community. Enjoy!
