July Spotlight Fundraiser

Riverside Theatres hosted the business community of Western Sydney as well as more than 200 distinguished guests on Monday 1 July for our July Spotlight Fundraising event. The Lord Mayor of Parramatta, Cr Andrew Wilson, welcomed political guests Dr Geoff Lee MP, fellow Parramatta Councillors, as well as councillors of neighbouring local government areas for the successful night. Spearheaded by Dr Jim Taggart OAM, the Deputy Chair of the Riverside Advisory Board, the evening raised about $40,000 for disadvantaged students to participate in the Riverside Education program, for people with disability to take part in the Beyond the Square program, and for the development of new work and artists through the production arm, Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta.

Here are some of the photos from the night.
