Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our 3rd annual Acting Out for the Health of It variety show and fundraiser on March 3, 2015 at Brava Theater Center in San Francisco, CA. Nearly 150 BCAction community members and supporters joined us for an entertaining and thought-provoking evening. With your support, we raised over $20,000. Thank you so much for your generous support.
A huge thank you to the amazing performers who donated their time and talent: SoulForce Dance Company, Ann Kim and Laurie Hessen Pomeranz (BAYS), Dhaya Lakkshminarayanan, and Date Nite. Guests were inspired and touched, they laughed uncontrollably, and were dancing in their seats thanks to your fabulous performances. Thanks to our brilliant emcee, Tania Katan, for guiding us through the evening’s program and tying it all together with sass and hilarity. And many thanks to Gringa for sharing their Samba-Rock music at the VIP reception.
And a very special thank you to our amazing Board of Directors member, Julie Morgan for hosting the event. Julie, it was a pleasure working with you and supporting you around all the details of the evening. Your great ideas, tenacity and large and loving community are all quite inspiring. This year has been the most successful Acting Out – For the Health of It yet, and it was because of the energy and dedication you put into it from beginning to end.
Lastly, but certainly not least, thank you so much to our generous event sponsors, in-kind silent auction and food donors, and volunteers – your support truly made the event a success.
We look forward to seeing you next year!
