May brings a chance to ‘Get Smart’ in Providence

April 27, 2013 by  

The annual ‘Get Smart!’ fundraising event will take place this May in Providence.

The event, the theme of which is a tribute to the 1960s television show ‘Get Smart’, will raise funds for the Learning Community – a public school for those in Kindergarten through Grade 8.

There will be several themed activities during the night, such as a signature cocktail, ‘secret code cuisine’, and the Cone of Silence Silent Auction. It should be a fun night for those who remember this iconic comedy show. In addition to it being an enjoyable evening, it may also be a great opportunity for those in the education industry and local businesspersons to network with one another, perhaps resulting in more fundraising events or investment by more businesses in local Providence educational institutions.

More than likely, Providence business will be donating items to be sold at the silent auction. Companies who do can make their involvement known to their current customers by working with local printing companies to design and create an event flyer.

Get Smart, the popular TV show, ran from 1965 to 1970 and was primarily shown on NBC. Despite its relatively short lifespan, it remains a memorable show today, thanks largely to its comical mish-mash of James Bond-style adventure and Mel Brooks’ trademark comedic touch.

The event will take place in the Cafe and the Roots Cultural Center on May 3 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Tickets are $65 each. For more information, call 401-305-3357.
