Night at the Theatre

Smokey Joe's Cafe

The foot-stomping musical Smokey Joe’s Café had guests dancing in their seats! Our Night at the Theatre event was held Saturday, April 30, 2022. This Broadway sensation is a stirring musical revue of tracks by celebrated songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Night at the Theatre is generously sponsored by the Jerry and Nina Patton Family Foundation.


Guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beer. Davy Ray Bennett provided the music while partygoers bid on silent auction items, participated in the wine pull, and socialized with friends before the show. Everyone enjoyed desserts during intermission, too.
