April 19, 2024    
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Palm Springs Plaza Theatre supporters will have the opportunity to attend a fundraising event at an exclusive venue that houses more than 100 rare and vintage automobiles. Called ‘Drive the Plaza Theatre Into the Future,’ the event will offer participants the opportunity to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and live musical entertainment while viewing an amazing vintage auto collection owned by collector Brad Prescott. It will be held at The Prescott Collection Hangar in Palm Springs. Address will be provided when guests RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/CarHangar

The Prescott Collection celebrates the postwar American automobile. It comprises more than 100 automobiles, ranging from award-winning restorations to extremely low mileage original examples. It includes renowned luxury marques such as Cadillac, Lincoln and Packard as well as “orphan makes” including Nash, Rambler and Studebaker. They are housed in a series of specially constructed hangars in Palm Springs.

The Foundation is continuing to raise funds to fully restore the Plaza Theatre, one of the most iconic venues in Palm Springs. The Foundation has already raised more than $15M but must raise at least $10M more to cover the construction costs and contingencies plus startup expenses. These needed funds will help restore the building to its original splendor and update it to meet the access, technology, and equity needs of today and tomorrow. It is projected that the restoration work will take approximately eighteen months to complete, allowing the Plaza Theatre to open in 2025.
