“Colors of Christmas,” the Benjamin House 2020 Holiday Gala will premiere online at 2PM (ET)/11AM (PT) Sunday, December 20th. For almost a decade, celebrity guests from New York City have traveled to Elizabeth City, NC to honor Benjamin House, whose mission is, as it has always been, “Helping the mentally challenged with life.” Due to pandemic conditions this holiday season, the gala has moved online, with special appearances by Broadway’s Karen Akers (Nine, Grand Hotel), KT Sullivan (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), and Marta Sanders (Best Little Whorehouse in Texas), and a special guest performance by Master Illusionist Elliot Zimet (The Illusionists: International Tour, America’s Got Talent, Penn & Teller’s FOOL US!, The Early Show). Hosted by Broadway veteran and six-time Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs (MAC) Award winner Eric Michael Gillett, this season’s gala features a host of talent gathering together both to celebrate and to spread the word about the great and inspiring work being done by the devoted staff and founders of Benjamin House.
This free private event can be accessed by RSVP’ing at the link above. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email, followed by an access code to be delivered via email on the morning of Sunday, December 20th. The show will then be available to stream through January 1, 2021. Make your holiday a little brighter and join us at this celebration honoring Benjamin House online!
