Reach for the Stars is the annual fund raiser gala that the Kravis Center throws to Benefit the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts S*T*A*R (Students and Teachers Arts Resource) Series and Education Programs.

In previous years, the theme was “Dancing with the Stars” where members of the news media challenged our local officials in a dance competition.

This year the tables were turned and an extravagant and the guests were treated to a fantastic Casino Royale themed party!

Cha Cha Ching!

And my favorite was that we had the pleasure of trying out a preview of the treats that will be offered in Paneterie on Clematis Street.

And of course the night is not complete until you get The Byrdman assisting a roving magician with some up-close tricks.

The evening ended with the much anticipated raffle. Kudos for everyone who was involved with making this such a memorable & spectacular evening.
