Drama Basket Party March 6

T he 10th annual Basket Party to benefit the Whitehall Drama Club is scheduled for noon, Sunday March 6, at Whitehall Central School. Drawings will begin at 2 p.m.

Drama club members are required to donate baskets, and Cheryl Putorti, who is organizing the event, said she is also looking to the community for help with donations.

The party provides the main funding for the club, which will be performing “Once Upon A Mattress” April 1 and 2.

“The basket party is really important,” chorus director Chris Palmer told some of his students at a rehearsal last week, pointing out that the club had to pay for the musical score and scripts for the play. “

Putorti is looking for people to make or donate baskets. People can contact her at 499-2812 or 499-0788.

Most years, there are about 110 baskets at the party, but this year the group is aiming for 140.
