The 2012 Drexel Gala (held this past Sunday) was a fantastic and successful event with delicious dining from Barrel 44, the exclusive Ohio premiere of the award-winning film Mahler on the Couch, and a fabulous turnout of Drexel supporters to help celebrate another successful year as Columbus’ premiere arts cinema. Most importantly, the event raised more than $70,000 to help support the future of the Drexel Theatre.
The highlight of the evening was the recognition of tireless Drexel supporter Bonnie K. Milenthal by presenting her with the Drexel Hero Award. Richard Stoff, Chairman of the Friends of the Drexel, Inc., paid tribute to Bonnie not only for her outstanding dedication and pivotal role in the formation of the Friends of the Drexel, but also for her leadership and outstanding commitment to both community service and the arts.
On behalf of everyone who worked on this event, from the Gala committee to the volunteer ushers, we would like to thank you for helping to continue to secure and sustain the future of the historic Drexel Theatre as one of the most important cultural assets in Columbus.
