Co-Chairs: Pamela Beck, Donanne Kasikci, Robin Venturelli
The Blue Ribbon Sampler Series began the year with a Tony-Award winning musical, Fun Home. Based on a graphic novel, the Sampler dinner co-chairs, Pamela Beck, Donanne Kasikci, and Robin Venturelli were able to play with the story’s theme and put together a brightly decorated dinner reminiscent of joyful, childhood times. Fun Home’s leading actress, Katherine Shindle, joined The Blue Ribbon at dinner to talk about her experience with the production and her work with the National Endowment for the Arts. The evening concluded with a delightful raffle of Fun Home swag and prizes.
