We continue to hear about hotels, resorts, schools, local community groups and more going above and beyond to explore ways to connect with the locals, guests and friends in this time we seem to want to call the new normal. Normal, it is not, but it also has pushed many out of their comfort zones and ignited new partnerships and unique collaborations. A great example is when the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn came together with the Transcendence Theatre Company, Sonoma Valley Wine and Landmark Vineyard to present the best of Broadway Under the Stars.
“Community events are the fabric of Sonoma County,” said Edward Roe, General Manager at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. “We are delighted to partner with TTC, supporting their virtual summer season while raising critical funds for local non-profits. See you at our next ‘encore’ Drive-Inn!”
This once-in-a-lifetime Drive-Inn experience was enjoyed from the comfort of the visitor’s cars (plenty of social distancing) from the upper parking lot of the resort, while getting up close and personal with Transcendence Theatre Company’s virtual season of The Best Night Ever Goes Online with a special showing of the exclusive concert, “Don’t Stop Believin.” Net proceeds from the event benefitted several local philanthropic organizations including Redwood Empire Food Bank and Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley. Themed concessions and a Landmark Winery bar capped the picture perfect summer Sonoma evening.
“Transcendence has excelled in the heart of Sonoma County from the beginning of our company in 2012,” said Brad Surosky, Executive Director of Transcendence Theatre Company. “We couldn’t be more grateful for the supporters and family we have made in this community. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Fairmont to be able to showcase our Virtual Summer Season at this one of a kind Drive-Inn experience.”
