PALSS announces date change for annual Torch benefit performance

Mark your calendars for January 19 and 20, 2018 for the thirteenth annual Torch benefit performance. Traditionally held in October, Torch moves to its new date in January, but that is all that will change. This popular event will continue to assemble a group of dedicated performers, musicians and friends to present, a musical cabaret of Broadway songs to benefit Palmetto AIDS Life Support Services (PALSS). Returning to the Columbia Music Festival Association (CMFA) headquarters at 914 Pulaski Street in Columbia, the show remains a heartfelt evening of music and song. Pre-show festivities begin with a reception, featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 PM Friday and Saturday nights. Suggested donations are $385 per table of eight. Individual Cabaret seating is suggested at $55 donation. Theater seating donation is suggested at $40. We’ll even save your seat for you. Get ahead of the crowd and call PALSS at 803-779-7257 to reserve your tickets today.
