“Live From Beth El: It’s Saturday night!”
Temple Beth El of Boca Raton will virtually host its annual fundraiser, the Beth El Bash, via Zoom at 7 p.m. April 24.
And though the presentation may be virtual, the talent is the real deal: The featured musical guest is the award-winning singer, star of Broadway and movies, TV and stage, Idina Menzel.
Although Menzel has recorded six studio albums, she’s best-known for voicing Elsa in Disney’s Frozen in 2013. The signature song Let It Go is now a classic. It won an Oscar and a Grammy and reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making Menzel the first Tony Award-winning actress to reach the Top 10.
The 2020 Beth El Bash was canceled due to the coronavirus, so the temple reinvented this year’s event to honor pandemic heroes and heroines. In addition to the A-list entertainment, home-delivered sweet treats and raffles are planned. The event is open to the community.
Proceeds provide scholarships to Beth El, which are needed even more because of the pandemic.
Tickets for the Beth El Bash are $118 per person or $180 per household and available at www.tbeboca.org. Email Shayna Martinoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 561-314-2815 for more information.
