Firstly, a bit of housekeeping. Within hours of Simon laying down the challenge, his R50 000 ceiling was capped! How awesome is that? We still need to raise much, much more though. So, is there anyone out there with a similar deal for the next R50 000? I am beyond proud of meganshead readers who have been human angels.
Then, the rest of this post is my press release. Please come. Please spread the word. We have exactly a week to sell 638 seats.
Natalieâ€™s Circle of Love TheatreSports FUNdraiser
Where: The Baxter Theatre Concert Hall
When: Fri 4 March @20h00
How much: R100 a ticket
TheatreSports, Cape Townâ€™s longest running and most favourite live theatre show, has been delighting audiences with their special brand of creative, interactive hilariousness since 1993.
If there is one thing that this team of improvisers know, itâ€™s that laughter is the best medicine. Thatâ€™s why, when we, the members of TheatreSports Cape Town heard about 10 year old Natalie Cohenâ€™s rare cancer Chordoma, and the huge and expensive treatment she was going to need overseas, we decided to put on a FUNdraiser.
So, on Friday the 4 March, at 20h00, at The Baxter Theatre Concert Hall you can come and laugh and play with us for an hour and ten minutes. Itâ€™s going to be improvisation like youâ€™ve never seen it before! Teams of players will compete against each other by playing improvised games based on suggestions from the audience, and scored by judges in the audience. Itâ€™s crazy, unpredictable and completely hilarious.
Natalie and her whole family will be there. Itâ€™s their last night before Natalie and her mom Shirley and dad Jonny fly off to Regensberg in Germany for huge surgery.
While so many generous people have pledged and donated money towards this unbelievably expensive undertaking to get Natalie treatment, there were many who felt unsure about what they could do, or intimidated by how small and insignificant their offering would be. This is a chance for all of you to contribute! R100 buys you a ticket. The Concert Hall has 638 seats! Our goal is to sell out the show. The show is suitable for everybody and is especially loved by young people of all ages. Buy a ticket. Bring your family and friends. Buy a ticket for someone else! Share in the laughter and become part of Natalieâ€™s Circle of Love.
