Annual Benefit

The Doo Wop Project

March 22, 2024

Thank you to all who attended the 2024 BIG ARTS Annual Benefit – one of the most fun, exciting nights on the islands – complete with lavish buffets, open bars, post-show desserts, dancing, and drinks. Guests were on their feet when they heard The Doo Wop Project, featuring stars of Broadway’s smash hits,  Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical. The Doo Wop Project brought unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate – and in some cases creatively reimagine – some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history.  VIEW MORE PHOTOS!

Thank You to all our Wonderful 2024 Annual Benefit Sponsors and Donors!
