Wit’s End theatre to host “Pink Ribbon Night”


Fri, Jul 25th, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Arts & Culture

Chatfield, Minn., – In theme with our “pink” 2014 production: Legally Blonde — the Musical, Wits’ End Theatre is hosting a pre-show, breast cancer benefit and awareness evening. The event takes place August 2, from 6 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. at Chatfield Center for the Arts.

Per the Wits’ End Board: “Wits’ End has benefitted from enthusiastic and generous supporters over the last 11 years. This year we would like to “pay it forward” by hosting this silent auction and awareness event for breast cancer.”

The evening will include refreshments, live music, and an information table staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. A pink ribbon wall collage and pink luminaria will be available to those who wish to recognize friends and loved ones who have battled the disease, plus there will be a silent auction with a variety of new and handcrafted items. The event is free and open to the public. A ticket to the show is not necessary to attend the benefit, but we will accommodate ticket holders by ending the silent auction at 7:25 p.m.

Many individuals and groups have donated auction items, but there is still a need for more items to complete the auction bill. If you or your organization would like to help by donating an auction item or service, we would be happy to assist you with any questions, and gratefully accept your support.

Wits’ End Theatre is honored to work with Susan G. Komen – Minnesota on this event, and would like to stress that all proceeds from the benefit will go to Susan G. Komen – Minnesota, the local chapter of the nationally recognized Komen Foundation.

“The pink motif of our show choice is what suggested the Pink Ribbon Night. That, and the fact that so many on our theatre board have family members who have fought the disease. This made the cause personal for many of us.”

If you would like more information about the benefit, please contact Joan Verdegan at 507-281-0968 or email at joan@cvtesting.com.
