safi A. thomas’ birthday fundraiser 2019
Saturday, Jan. 5th
@ Prime Produce on 424 W. 54th St. NYC
Come enjoy an evening of freedom.
Freedom in expression. Freedom in dance. Freedom in speech. And freedom in pure indulgence of food and drink.
Celebrate a man that has given so selflessly to the dance community in NYC and abroad as a philanthropist, an educator, and an artistic director.
We'll kick-off the evening with Safi's Circle Cocktail Hour for our VIP. We'll then move to a seated, programmed dinner, which will be inclusive of special performances dedicated to Mr. Thomas by our Soloist, Raphaela Riemer and Demi-Soloist Kamaal Davis, heartfelt stories from our Thomas Fellowship students, a lively auction with amazing experiences and goods to bid on, and of course partying all in between with DJ Taela Naomi!
Our program for the evening consists of performances, speakers, live auction, and silent auction:
5:00pm | Safi’s Circle Cocktail Hour
6:00pm | Doors for General Admission
6:30pm | Program Begins. Dinner Served.
*Dress Code: Casual Chic
This is a birthday fundraiser so come prepared to support. Proceeds will go towards the H+ | Thomas Fellowship Endowment named after Safi Thomas’ father, James L. Thomas, a scholarship fund that has supported hundreds of dancers in receiving a conservatory level education in Hip-Hop Dance.
