Thank you to those who attended the special
BENEFIT PERFORMANCE OF PERICLES, PRINCE OF TYRE
on November 19, 2016.
Guests raised over $6,000 to support DSF efforts to bring professional Shakespeare to those with little or no access to the arts. DSF honored Sylvia S. Banks (for her philanthropic leadership at DuPont) and Robert Elder and Gregory Lloyd Morris (for the play “#BlackJobsMatter…A Wilmington Experiment) with the inaugural “Muse of Fire” Award for inspiring ventures at the nexus of arts and social services.
Guests also were able to hear from audience members who attended some of the Community Tour performances of Pericles and learned how attending the production impacted their lives.
DSF thanks Delaware Historical Society, The Country Vintner, Home Grown Café, and Fred Carspecken of Carspecken-Scott Gallery for their support of the benefit performance.
