Cheers to Volunteers! – Chris Elkins MacFaden

Chris Elkins MacFaden started volunteering at The Folly Theater three years ago. Since then, she has become an integral part of the team. Chris has served on the volunteer council as secretary, ushered many events, worked in concessions, and served champagne at the Frolic Bubble Bar to patrons. She received the Volunteer of the Year Award from The Folly Theater during a Volunteer Recognition Night. Chris works in a medical facility, so she is an everyday hero, too!
