Special Events

Benefit Committee

NWT hosts an annual fundraiser that provides at least 15% of the organization's annual budget. Volunteers play an integral part in making the event happen. Planning process is 8 - 9 months and involves monthly committee meetings as well as subcommittee meetings as needed. Leadership positions for each committee are open. Subcommittees include:

  • Raffle/Auction(s)
  • Food
  • Decorations (need varies depending on venue)
  • Volunteer Coordination
  • Invitation
  • Underwriting
  • Registration
  • Row Captains/Table Hosts

Opening Night Receptions/VIP Events

NWT hosts one VIP event each season and occasional opening night receptions during the season. Both events generate "buzz" around a season or show opening. The VIP event is a thank you to sponsors while opening night events serve as mini-fundraisers. Working with a NWT staff member, volunteers assist with planning and running the events in a variety of capacities.
