Commonweal Theatre dedicates performance of Parfumerie to Habitat for Humanity


Fri, Nov 11th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

The Commonweal Theatre Company in Lanesboro will be presenting a special performance of its Christmas play, Parfumerie on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m., as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties.

Parfumerie is the original romantic comedy that inspired the hit movies The Shop Around the Corner and You've Got Mail and the musical She Loves Me. Amidst the bustle of the Christmas season, two clerks at Hammerschmidt's Parfumerie engage in a tense rivalry, unaware they have actually fallen in love with each other through a year's worth of anonymous, romantic letters.

Tickets for this special performance are $25 for adults and $15 for students with 100 percent of the ticket sales going towards the ongoing efforts of Habitat for Humanity in Fillmore County. F&M Community Bank is matching $.50 for every $1 donated to Habitat for Humanity in Fillmore County. This means that when you donate $25 to see a great performance, you are really making a donation of $37.50 to Habitat for Humanity.

Tickets are available at F&M Community Banks in Preston and Chatfield as well as Harmony Foods, Preston Foods and Rushford Foods or by calling the Fillmore County Habitat for Humanity Office at (507) 459-4199.

ABOUT HABITAT FOR HUMANITY:

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical, grassroots, Christian organization, dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. Habitat partners with homeowner families, the members of the local community, and volunteers to build simple, decent, affordable houses. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit, through no-interest loans.

To qualify for a Habitat home, families must currently live in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the resources to pay a monthly mortgage and be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Before moving into a Habitat home, families must contribute 300 hours of "sweat-equity" to the building of the home and must make a modest down payment.

Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties built its first home in Winona County in 1994. Since then, 43 homes have been built. In addition to the 25 homes within the city of Winona, Habitat has built homes in Lewiston, St. Charles, Minnesota City, Altura, Stockton and Rushford.

Volunteers interested in helping with Habitat for Humanity projects or offering donations may call the Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties office at 5 .....
