In May 2011, the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple lost not only its Executive Director, but also its greatest supporter: Matt Flynn.
Now, to honor him and carry on his commitment, the Scranton Cultural Center will host the Matt Flynn Community Tribute Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.
Flynn led an extensive effort to restore the SCC to its prominent place in the community as a center for the arts, education and culture.
The Scranton Cultural Center established the Matt Flynn Facilities Fund in his honor and all proceeds of this event will benefit this fund.
The night will feature local entertainment entitled Laughin' for Matt Flynn – a musical comedy revue, which was developed by Matt's nephew, Michael Flynn. The event will also feature some of Scranton's own musical theatre talent. The evening will be hosted by Evie Rafalko-McNulty.
The event begins at 7 p.m. with cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres and will conclude with dessert and coffee.
Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased at the SCC Box Office, by calling 570.344.1111, at www.Ticketmaster.com, by calling 1.800.745.3000 or at select Wal-Mart, Boscov's or Gallery of Sound locations.
