Thanks to all our volunteers for offering their time and talent to promote Partners’ mission of “Bringing People and the Arts Together.” 

Hello Partners, I hope everyone has been enjoying the last few months during our “off-season” and looking forward to volunteering in the upcoming 2017 season at The Pavilion. This year will be another exciting and busy year for Partners with many amazing shows, creative performances and fundraising opportunities.

Here you will find everything from the most up-to-date concert and event announcements to information on attending our 19th Annual Wine Dinner and Auction honoring Randy Lowry on March 26th. I look forward to seeing each of you soon and thank you for being a part of our wonderful volunteer organization.   -Sarah Epley

From Jeff Young, vice president of operations for The Pavilion: 

"Construction is going well!  One construction project is quite an undertaking, but six simultaneous projects are momentous. With every construction project there are challenges that arise. Thankfully we have assembled the best and brightest minds in the business to adapt and overcome the challenges."

All projects will be completed by the first show of the season with the exception of the Woodforest Bank Club which is slated to be completed in September. 

Our Annual Meeting will be April 28, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm in The Pavilion Event Center, Ovation Room.  The business meeting will begin at 6 p.m. This is a great way to meet and greet fellow Partners. Come hear the latest updates on the new 2017 season and sign up for committees.  Bring a friend who may be interested in joining Partners. See you there!


New Partners are invited to attend Performing Arts Training Tuesday, February 21 at 6:00 p.m. The session will last approximately an hour and a half. This is a great way to find out more about The Pavilion’s mission and volunteer program.  Please invite anyone who is considering joining Partners to attend and explore volunteering here at The Pavilion! RSVP to Leslie Williams at lwilliams@woodlandscenter.org.

Save the Date!

The 19th Annual Wine Dinner & Auction will be held Sunday, March 26, on the main stage of The Pavilion.  This year’s honoree will be longtime Partner Randy Lowry.  Randy and JoAnne Lowry have been active Partners since 2001 with Randy joining the Partner’s Board shortly after and became President the following year. During that time Randy joined the wine dinner committee and became a co-chair the next year until he retired that position in 2016 after reaching the $1 million dollar milestone of funds raised for the scholarship program.  Both Randy and JoAnne are involved in many activities in the community and have been honored for their work, in addition to their tireless service to The Pavilion mission.  

The Pavilion Partners Annual Wine Dinner & Auction is the primary fundraiser for the scholarship program. We invite you to come enjoy hors d’oeuvres, dinner and premiere wines while offering your support for Partners’ scholarship fund as well as The Pavilion’s educational outreach programs. For reservations contact Leslie Williams lwilliams@woodlandscenter.org.  The ticket price is $225 per person and tables may be reserved to seat ten guests. Seating is limited.

Auction items are needed for this event.  If you have access to sports tickets or memorabilia, condos for skiing, fishing or the beach, special golf packages, boat trips, spa packages, etc. please contact committee co-chairman, Lisa Koetting, at lakfry@aol.com.  Donations are tax deductible and would be greatly appreciated.
