KERA’s 50th anniversary year includes a unique, multimedia fundraising event on the evening of Tuesday, November 29, 2011, at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre [19] in the Dallas Arts District. All proceeds will benefit KERA’s programs and services.

In honor of early KERA visionaries Robert A. (Bob) Wilson, one of the station’s first chief executive officers, and the late Ralph B. Rogers, an early KERA champion and the very first chairman of the PBS Board of Governors, the event will reflect on the station’s milestones over the past five decades and examine the critical role KERA will play in the future.

Archival film footage, radio recordings and the participation of notable public broadcasting personalities including Cokie Roberts and Jim Lehrer will bring the evening to life in a way that promises to educate, entertain and inspire you.
