Faye Butler and her Band; exquisite food and signature cocktails; silent auction; and a post-show DJ set with Ultra Naté, one of Billboard Magazine’s Greatest of All Time: Top Dance Club Artists. Guests will enjoy a broad selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and drinks, including a secret signature cocktail. All funds raised at this extraordinary celebration will support Everyman’s education programs and community initiatives; and our Pay-What-You-Choose program, making affordable tickets accessible to all community members.
Each single ticket offers you the choice of either the 6pm or 8pm hour-long concert by the legendary E. Faye Butler and Her Band, and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails, fun theatrical encounters, and the 9pm DJ Set with Baltimore’s own Ultra Naté from 9pm to 11:30pm. It’s a fabulous deal for a celebration that benefits Everyman’s education programs and community initiatives.

Drew Tildon Reis
Drew Tildon Reis is an attorney in Rosenberg Martin Greenberg’s land use and real estate departments. In her practice, Drew represents developers and commercial and industrial property owners in matters relating to the varying aspects of land use and zoning. She advises clients on all elements of the entitlement and permitting processes, including use restrictions, off-street parking requirements, stormwater management, historic preservation, traffic mitigation, green building requirements, inclusionary housing obligations, and liquor licensing matters, among others. Drew earned her law degree from the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, and her B.A. from Northwestern University in Theatre and Political Science as well as the Music Theatre Certificate.
Prior to her transition into the legal profession, Drew put her musical theater certificate to use. Her time acting instilled a deep respect for theater professionals and she is consistently in awe of Everyman’s dedication to the well-being of its resident company and staff alike. A Baltimore native, she is honored to serve on the board of a theater that supports artists and her hometown.
Christopher Uhl grew up as a theatre kid and fell in love with the art of storytelling at a very young age. While no longer acting on stage, Christopher is proud to support Everyman’s world-class productions, their rising artist education programs, and their efforts to attract new and diverse audiences, as a Board Member.
With more than a decade of experience in government and politics, Christopher has been involved with (and won!) many of the recent high profile campaigns at the state and local levels in Maryland. He was recently appointed as Special Advisor to Baltimore County Executive John Olszewski Jr. He previously served as Vice President of one of Maryland’s top Democratic consulting firms, and served in the administrations of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake and Governor Martin O’Malley.
Christopher and his husband, Andre Cawley, live in Mt. Vernon and co-produce one of Baltimore’s fastest growing queer events, Sweet Spot.
