This annual event is a community celebration of public education that showcases the talents of Allentown youth and assists ASDF in its mission to encourage, promote, support, and fund positive educational experiences for students in the Allentown School District (ASD).

Student instrumental, choral, dance and poetry groups from Building 21, Dieruff High School and William Allen High School will perform as guests arrive and during butlered hors d’oeuvres and a seated “dinner theater”.  Some of the students will have the opportunity to perform with this year’s guest of honor, Richie Peña, a 1994 WAHS graduate and two-time Grammy award winner. 

Event tickets can be purchased through March 15, and opportunities for sponsors, advertisers and silent auction donors are also available. The deadline for sponsors to be included in our Morning Call ads is February 19, and the program ad deadline is March 11.  Go to or contact ASDF at 484-765-4121 for more information.
