Since the reopening of the renovated Fox Tucson Theatre on December 31, 2005 – after a 30-year hiatus and a six-year, $14+ million restoration – the Fox continues to sparkle as the “Crown Jewel of Downtown.”
The annual Gala is always a special evening drawing outstanding talent. Gala performers have included Steve Winwood, Vince Gill, Martin Short, Emmylou Harris, Boz Scaggs, Stephen Stills/Judy Collins and Paula Abdul. The VIP part of this annual event begins with a delicious catered dinner held in the County Courthouse Courtyard. Our 2019 headliner was country and pop superstar, LeAnn Rimes.
Each year, the Chasing Rainbows Award is given to “a person or couple who through his/her/their vision, dedication, and/or financial support has helped to build the Fox Tucson Theatre, Downtown Tucson, or the Greater Tucson area.” Past honored recipients are Mayor Bob & Beth Walkup, Richard Miranda, Paul Bonavia, Zuckerman Family Foundation, Bruce E. & Katie Dusenberry, Mike & Beth Kasser, Craig Sumberg, Mayor Rothschild and George & Margaret Larsen.
