The Preservation Gala
A Legendary Encore: An All-Access Gala Celebration of the Fox
Saturday, March 14, 2015
7:00 p.m.
The Fox Theatre
660 Peachtree Street, NE
Atlanta

The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and the Fox Theatre are proud to present A Legendary Encore: An All-Access Gala Celebration of the Fox.

In 1974, the city of Atlanta came together to save a struggling but beloved theater in the heart of midtown. Now, after four decades of landmark performances, the legend of the Fox Theatre lives on, due in no small part to the incredible community that rallied behind it. It is because of these generous citizens that the Fox marquee still glows over Peachtree Street, marking the heart of Atlanta.

A Legendary Encore will celebrate the 40th anniversary of this historic campaign, honoring the people who kept the legend alive. Guests will explore the amazing spaces of the Fox, from the awesome star-lit main auditorium to behind-the-scenes places not normally open to the public. They will also enjoy a tempting array of small plates, dance to a rollicking band and discover the wonders of the Fox!

The event chairs are Carolyn Llorens and Caroline Tucker from The Georgia Trust, and Jay Myers and Ingrid Saunders Jones from the Fox Theatre. Atlantans are welcome to come celebrate this historic downtown landmark and honor the original Board of Trustees of Atlanta Landmarks at a fabulous party with live entertainment, a full bar, and tasty offerings from Atlanta's finest caterers.

Proceeds from the event will be shared by both organizations. The Georgia Trust's portion will go directly to its mission to reclaim, restore and revitalize Georgia's historic places; the Fox Theatre's portion will benefit the outreach programs of the Fox Theatre Institute, which revitalizes communities, one theatre at a time.

Spaces are limited. Reservations are $150 for members; $200 for non-members (includes membership both in the Trust and the Friends of the Fox program); $100 for guests under 40.

Dress is cocktail attire.

Special thanks to our sponsors, patrons and host committee.
