PTC’s Artistic Director, Ryanne Domingues, says, “We are incredibly excited to honor our Board President, Judith Wooldridge, and PNC Bank at this year’s benefit. Both of these honorees have given so much to Passage, and we are incredibly grateful for their support over the years. They have helped us to solidify a sustainable and vibrant arts organization, while still focusing on the community and leaving room for artistic risk. Their support has helped to build a foundation for our growth both administratively and artistically, and I can’t wait to raise a glass in their honor!”
