So much important work goes on behind the scenes of a flawless show. Long before the curtain goes up, thousands of work hours and hundreds of ideas have been executed to make that one show possible.
Durée & Company is happy to help throw a spotlight on all the work that goes on before the show, thanks to the Broward Performing Arts Foundation, Inc., which makes the Broward Center’s showcases shine so brightly.
Our team’s long-standing relationship with the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District, which includes the Broward Center, has paved the way for this partnership, and we are excited about the inherent synergies of our two clients. For years, we’ve promoted the shows, special events, guest stars, entertainment collaborations and arts series that make downtown Fort Lauderdale such a destination.
Now, working with the Broward Performing Arts Foundation, the Durée & Company team can introduce the donors, campaigns, supporters and events that underwrite and fund the Broward Center’s continued success.
For example, coming up this weekend, The Foundation will hold its annual benefit, Shine On, headlined by Grammy Award-winner Sarah McLachlan. The event will be held on March 28 with cocktails in the Peck Courtyard and dinner in the Amaturo Theater. Following McLachlan’s performance, guests will enjoy dessert, cocktails and entertainment at a post-show party.
The Foundation also completed a major campaign last year, which resulted in the construction of two new buildings – the riverfront Huizenga Pavilion on the New River and the Rose Miniaci Arts Education Center – and renovations to all of the existing facilities, including the Au-Rene Theater and the new Club level. So when patrons enjoy a lovely meal in the New River Bistro or dance the night away in the Riverview Ballroom, they can credit the vision and work of The Foundation.
Amazing stories happen when you mix kids and art, so we can’t wait to work with the programs that emerge from the Rose Miniaci Arts Education Center. The Center features the JM Family Studio Theatre, a 2,100-square-foot education hall, as well as a classroom, coaching and administrative space.
Did you know that since 1991, 2.7 million students have achieved their artistic goals through the Broward Center’s partnership with Broward County Schools? The Broward Center is home to the largest free arts-in-education program in America and has more than 40 individual education programs, which serves more than 150,000 students annually.
The Broward Performing Arts Foundation, Inc. is the non-profit, fundraising energy, vision and support behind the impactful Broward Center, and now the newest client of Durée & Company. We’re ready to break a leg!
