Women In Theatre looks forward to honoring the winners of the 2011 Red Carpet Awards at a luncheon on Saturday, Oct. 22, at Castaways Restaurant in Burbank, 12—2:30 p.m. Doors open for the Reception Area at 11 a.m., a Cash Bar and Silent Auction are held prior to the event, benefiting WIT Outreach programming.
The Red Carpet Awards highlight the month of October as the U.S. National Arts and Humanities month. This recognition also allows us to focus on the outstanding work being supported in Los Angeles, honoring groups and individuals for their artistry, creativity and passion for the performing arts. The Red Carpet represents the excitement of a special event while symbolizing the highest degree of hospitality. Join us as we illuminate creative efforts and inspired dedication to the arts.
