How Sweet it Is

Don’t miss a glittering evening of heart, soul, and Muses as we celebrate 35 fabulous years of The Muses & Patroness Circle of McCallum Theatre.  This year the group will host their major annual fundraiser, How Sweet It Is, on Tuesday, February 21st from 5-9pm at the beautiful Vintage Club in Indian Wells.


This event is the Muses’ major annual fundraiser, and is always an extraordinary night filled with glamour, music, dancing, phenomenal live auction items, and generous hearts.  All proceeds go to support the McCallum Theatre Education Program which serves over 50,000 students and educators annually through innovative, life-changing in-person and virtual programming in theater, dance, music and visual arts at no cost to the students.


How Sweet It Is will be an evening of celebration that starts with a cocktail reception with DJ Mod Girl spinning the hottest retro tunes, as well as a photo booth, delicious hors d’oeuvres and more.  Then, guests will move into the main ballroom to enjoy a sumptuous dinner, live auction and music and dancing by LA Party Dolls.


Single tickets are $450.  Sponsorships are available for as little as $1,250 and come with an invitation to a very special Sponsor Party, on Wednesday, February 8th, 4-7pm at the exquisite home of Silver Patroness Barbara Rogers and Gary Geske.  We are so thankful for their hospitality and generosity for this special event.

Your support of How Sweet It Is will make it possible for the McCallum Theatre Education program to continue to share the joy and discovery of the arts with thousands of Valley schoolchildren.  Just one $450 ticket to “How Sweet It Is” underwrites a full classroom partnership with McCallum Theatre Education.


If you are unable to attend, please know a $100 gift provides one motivating workshop for an entire classroom with a McCallum Theatre professional Teaching Artist. To purchase Sponsorships or Tickets at any level or to donate, please contact Brooke Stuessy at 760-776-6186
