In memory of Ray Hillenbrand, the Performing Arts Center is proud to present A Christmas Collection, a benefit for One Heart.

Featuring holiday music by Kenny Putnam, Boyd Bristow, and Jami Lynn as well as holiday tales read by local authors and actors, A Christmas Collection offers a quiet and contemplative approach to Christmas as it draws near.  The program seeks also to be a metaphor for the season and how we humans should be in relation to one another – regardless of faith, race, and/or any other differences between us. The Lakota teach “Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ” – that we “all are related” – and there is a song that says, “the secret of Christmas is not the things you do at Christmas time, but the Christmas things you do all year through.” There is not a more appropriate way to remember Ray than by supporting his dream of a facility that operates with these two precepts.
