Raymond J. Vivacqua, M.D, is the 2016 recipient of the Walter M. Strine, Sr. Advocate of the Arts Award at The Media Theatre's annual gala on Saturday February 20.

The prestigious honor is named after Strine, the entrepreneur who renovated The Media Theatre and transformed it into a live performing arts center in 1994.

Raymond J. Vivacqua, M. D, is no stranger to assisting many with a good cause. He is the Chief of Hematology and Oncology at Crozer, Springfield, and Taylor hospitals. He works with each of his patients and their families to provide compassionate, technical care in order to give each one of them the best opportunity for the highest quality of life. 

His support of The Media Theatre assists in providing the finest opportunities for many youth in the region who have an interest in the performing arts. 

The annual gala, which has the aggressively fun title "Fight For The Arts" this year, is at once a fundraiser and a celebration. Entertainment will be provided by Tony nominee Josh Young accompanied by Brian Lowdermilk during a special one-night-only concert event.

Theatrical Trainers will add to the "Fight" theme with three boxing matches choreographed by Peter Andrew Danzig.

The entire evening will remind patrons that in order for Media Music Theatre Company to continue to produce its award winning and nationally recognized programming everyone must 'put up their dukes' and get into the ring to fight to succeed. 

Tickets which include the evening's two receptions and award presentation as well as the boxing matches are $150 per person. "Show Only" tickets for just the concert are $55 each.
