One Starry Night: A Gala Fundraiser with HFTco


June 4, 2024

For one night only, Hamilton Festival Theatre Company (HFTco) shines a light on the biggest, boldest artists in town for One Starry Night: A Gala Fundraiser at the historic Westdale, June 4 at 7 PM. In celebration of the 20th Hamilton Fringe, we're turning up the Steeltown glam with a night full of music, drag, and storytelling, featuring performers Häus of the Holy Spirit, The Hamilton 7, and Wax Mannequin! Walk into a room filled with Fringe friends old and new, and you could walk out with great artwork and prizes from local artists and organizations.

There’s a 50/50 raffle, silent auction items including an original hand-painted wooden paddle by musician, painter and author Tom Wilson - TEHÅHÀHAKE valued at over $2500, and great door prizes. Plus, you get to be among the FIRST to purchase tickets and passes to the 2024 Hamilton Fringe Festival. And all Gala attendees receive a FREE Fringe Benefits Button!

This is more than just a night out; it's a celebration of our community and a chance to support independent arts in Hamilton. Come for the fun, stay for the cause, and leave with the memories of one unforgettable night.
