BENEFITING: CO LAB THEATER GROUP INC
ORGANIZER: CO LAB THEATER GROUP INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
This is my third Giving Tuesday supporting CO/LAB and my second as a Board Member. I have been so privileged to work with such a talented, generous group of people who devote so much of their lives to bringing art, joy, and community into the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. I have also been privileged to see my brother thrive within the program. He developed his acting skills, contributed to an original musical, and (of course) performed his heart out in front of an audience. He did all of this with a passion and a commitment that CO/LAB has encouraged and grown.
As a non-profit, fundraising is so vital to our existence. Most of our classes and programs are offered to participants for little to no cost. We aim to provide access to all those who need us, regardless of financial background. But, we're in New York... so costs add up. We need things like classroom supplies and props, rehearsal studio space, theaters for performances and all the other fun things that make our programs happen.
For every $733 we raise, we fully support one actor for a semester at CO/LAB. If we hit our goal, we'll support all 50 of our actors for the spring semester. But we can't get there without your help!
CO/LAB (Creative Opportunities without Limits And Boundaries) is a non-profit dedicated to providing individuals with developmental disabilities a creative and social outlet through theater arts. To learn more, visit us at www.colabtheatergroup.com.
