The Folly Theater – Eat, Drink, & Be Jolly for the Folly Picnic Fundraiser

The annual Eat, Drink, & Be Jolly for the Folly Picnic Fundraiser, a benefit for the Folly Theater, was held in the glorious garden of Brian Williams’ home. The Stan Kessler Trio entertained. Picnic baskets held a tasting array of fried chicken, pasta salads, and even individual bottles of Prosecco – and the baskets were available for curbside pickup, too. Guests donned #FollyLove masks at the socially-distanced garden party, and a wonderful time was had by all.
