Dreamland Theater Benefit – R. Russell Atamian
The Nantucket Dreamland Theater held it’s second annual gala in July. R. Russell Atamian pledged support for the wonderful theater project.
“This is an absolutely wonderful project, the renovation of this classic vintage theater is a true commitment to Nantucket culture” R. Russell Atamian stated on a recent trip to the venue.
This years gala was once again well attended, however, the fundraising continues – you can click HERE to help show support for the project.
This year the Nantucket Dreamland Foundation was honored to welcome academy award nominee Sharon Stone and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
An odd match of celebrity, however, the two took the stage for a question and answer hosted by local and national journalist Mike Barnicle.
