We’ve been touting RED in posts and blogs as we talk about The Lusty Months workshop and teasing you with the promise of a big announcement. Well, there’s nothing so red as the thousands of events and productions surrounding V-Day’s 2014 campaign, One Billion Rising For Justice all over the world! We’re totally thrilled and excited to be Producing and Directing The Vagina Monologues in two events on May 5th and 8th at the Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa.
When we launched Sacred Return in January, we chose YWCA Bellingham as the first nonprofit organization to which we would contribute dollars, services and time because it resonates with Sacred Return’s focus on diversity and empowerment. The perfect opportunity for giving back presented itself when our friend, Executive Director Cheri Kilty, approached us for fundraising ideas to support the Y’s recent merger with Womencare Shelter. It’s a challenge when an organization grows that much, that fast and, in this case, encompasses two venerable local nonprofits that serve thousands of women. So we did what we do best and brainstormed ways to help. V-Day Bellingham is the result.
The Vagina Monologues have toured the world since 1996 and Ginny has directed it once before. Jessica has spearheaded countless communication campaigns for businesses and nonprofits around the U.S. This was a wonderful opportunity and a natural choice.
