We're grateful to the many generous party-goers who turned out August 16th for the 10th Annual Barrington Wine Classic at Barrington Golf Club in Aurora, Ohio.  For three years now, Near West Theatre has been the beneficiary of this incredible event, and we are thrilled to report that the proceeds tally more than $125,000, all of which goes to creating mission-oriented musical theater, including special funding for our next KLAMOR project.  Special thanks go to NWT Advisory Board member Jim Schoff and event guru Tim Novotny, both longtime supporters, for their leadership and tireless efforts in organizing and promoting this special evening.
