As a not-for-profit performing arts organization, Ruth Eckerd Hall relies on a combination of ticket sales and charitable contributions to fulfill our mission. Each fall we host a fundraising event to raise critical funds for our mission to change lives through the performing arts.

This year’s fundraising efforts are more crucial than ever,
as our main stages have been dark for many months due to the global pandemic.

So this year, to raise funds for Ruth Eckerd Hall, we went virtual!

We hosted a Virtual Benefit on November 6th to support Ruth Eckerd Hall’s Recovery Fund.

The program was hosted by award-winning journalist Lissette Campos,
and featured some of Ruth Eckerd Hall’s incredible students and most beloved performers.

During the benefit, a special auction with treasures pulled from the Ruth Eckerd Hall vault took place!

Check out some of the auction items below:
