RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Playhouse will honor three local volunteers for their service to the playhouse and the town at its 13th Anniversary Gala fundraiser on Friday, which will feature country singer LeAnn Rimes.
During the gala, which starts at 8 p.m., the Playhouse will honor its young usher and greeter, Alex Fischetti, with an "Arts Volunteer Award." Actor and Wilton resident Charles Grodin will present the award.
In an article from AARP, The Magazine, Grodin stated, "There is nothing I could do solely for myself that would match the satisfaction I get from being of value to Alex."
Ridgefielders Lori Berisford and Elaine Cox will also be honored for their dedication to numerous local nonprofit organizations, including The Ridgefield Playhouse.
Rimes is a Grammy Award-winning country-pop superstar. She has released 10 studio albums. Her 1996 debut, "Blue," went multi-platinum.
For tickets to the gala featuring "Dinner-by-the-Bite" from area restaurants, an open bar and silent and live auctions with one-of-a-kind items, visit the website or call the box office at 203-438-5795.
The theater is at 80 East Ridge in Ridgefield.
