PALM DESERT, CA – College of the Desert Foundation hosted a ‘Sneak Preview’ and Sponsor Reception for their fourth annual “One Enchanted Evening” at the home of Co-chair, Jean Carrus, on November 3, 2010. Approximately 70 guests, including community leaders, sponsors, and VIPs, attended and were treated to a ‘Sneak Preview’ of what is in store at this year’s performance on the evening of Thursday, February 24, 2011.

The highlight of the event came when Co-chairs, Peggy Cravens and Jean Carrus made the exciting announcement that Wells Fargo will be this year’s Presenting Sponsor of “One Enchanted Evening IV.”

“We're very excited about our forthcoming production of “One Enchanted Evening IV” -- and equally excited and pleased to have the continuing support of WELLS FARGO as our Presenting Sponsor again this year,” stated Cravens and Carrus. “Wells Fargo has been tremendously supportive of many different charities here in the Desert. Their support of College of the Desert in these difficult economic times is greatly appreciated by the many who could not otherwise afford to get a college education, were it not for this fine Community College and the continuing support of Wells Fargo. This annual production is the major fundraiser for College of the Desert Foundation, with proceeds promoting educational success through scholarships, services, and much-needed programs for the students we serve at COD." Carrus and Cravens continued.

Paul Cracchiolo, Producer and Musical Director of “One Enchanted Evening IV,” peaked everyone’s interest when he gave an overview of what this year’s production would encompass. Later on in the evening, Broadway Star and Tony Award Nominee, Donna Theodore, delighted guests when she presented a vocal performance, giving attendees a taste of her upcoming performance in “One Enchanted Evening IV.”
