UPTOWN! Entertainment PaintsThe Town Red

Red Carpet Gala April 13 at the West Chester National Guard Armory

Dust off your dancing shoes, get out your party clothes and come join the troops in West Chester for a fun night of wining, dining, dancing and entertainment – while contributing to the mission of creating a permanent theater for film and live performance in the heart of West Chester.  The Uptown! Entertainment Alliance’s second annual Red Carpet Gala will take place on April 13, 2013 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory on North High Street in West Chester.   This festive and historic evening of live music, dancing and an auction will also be the community's farewell to the National Guard troops who have called the Armory home for almost a century.

Guests at the Red Carpet Gala will dance the night away in the Armory’s impressive Drill Hall to the sounds of The First Ladies of Rock & Soul, a 14-piece group known for recreating the songs of the great girl groups of the 60s and 70s.  Other highlights of the evening will be a short salute to recognize the contributions of the National Guard troops, a performance by Joel Roberts, winner of the 2013 Uptown! Songwriting Contest, and live and silent auctions where guests can bid on great items from diamond jewelry to unique dinners and exotic vacations.

Food for the Red Carpet Gala will be provided by John Serock Catering of West Chester, and guests will also be treated to beers from regional brewers and unique wines from Brandywine Valley vintners Penns Woods Winery and Galer Estate Vineyards & Winery.  Tickets for the Gala are $100 until April 1; following April 1 the cost will be $125; tickets can be purchased online at www.uea.eventbrite.com.

Funds raised at the Red Carpet Gala will help finance Uptown! Entertainment’s 2013-2014 programming and contribute toward the group’s vision of creating a permanent theater in West Chester. The Armory Building itself is first on the Uptown! list of sites for the theater, and the Red Carpet Gala provides local residents and art lovers a chance to see it used as an entertainment venue.
