Canton Ballet to Host New Fundraiser: Relevé on the Rooftop — May 9

 

Canton, OH – Canton Ballet will host its new fundraiser, Relevé on the Rooftop: An Evening with Altitude — presented by Employers Health and co-chaired by Kristen DeDent and Jen Deuble — on Thursday, May 9 at 6:00 PM on the Sky Level Terrace at the Hall of Fame Village.

Relevé is a French term that means ‘raised up,’ and it’s also a ballet movement where a dancer rises to a full or half pointe. This event is about elevation — lifting up our dancers, our programs, and our community through excellence in the art of dance,” shares Joy L. Raub, Executive Director of Canton Ballet.

Relevé on the Rooftop will include an evening of live jazz music by the Theron Brown Trio, charcoal artwork by Bruce Budd, and an intimate performance by Canton Ballet’s Company dancers under the artistic direction of Jennifer Catazaro Hayward. A limited live auction and three exclusive raffle items will be featured. Raffle tickets are $20 each and are available for advance purchase at https://cantonballet.com/releve-on-the-rooftop-tickets/.

  • An adults-only, 2-night stay in a Club-Level Honeycomb at the Inn at Honey Run, including dinner and wine for two at Tarragon. Valued at $1,250.
  • A set of 4 Goodyear tires, plus a $100 gift card to Conrad’s Tire Express & Total Car Care. Valued at $1,100.
  • An in-home meal for 10, curated and prepared by private chef and Canton native, Samantha Morrow of Eden’s Gate. Valued at $1,000.

“As a Canton-based company with a strong appreciation for the arts, Employers Health believes everyone should have the opportunity to experience local art,” said Chris Goff, President and CEO of Employers Health. “We are honored to support a renowned program that helps keep art available and alive in our community.”
