VYT Affair-athon Surpasses Fundraising Records

116 past and current VYT cast members participate in 8-hour virtual event

Valley Youth Theatre replaced its annual VYTal Affair gala with an eight-hour virtual telethon on Aug. 22. The event raised $238,000-plus, surpassing the previous in-person gala record. In the past, VYTal Affair has included live performances at the Herberger Theater Center, along with food from Valley restaurants. This year, more than 116 past and current cast members performed virtually. Local restaurants participated by donating a percentage of their sales during designated times. A highlight was artistic director Bobb Cooper’s rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
