Help Essence Go To the Hawaii Festival of Improv
Organized by: Essence Improv Comedy
EVENT DATE Sep 25, 2014
Essence Improv is an all female African American Improv Ensemble, and our ensemble has been asked (as part of showing diversity nationally in the improv community) to perform at Improvaganza 9: The Hawaii Festival of Improv.
The company will not only peform at this prestigious festival in its 9th year, but we will also be teaching classes. Shaun Landry (Former Second City Chicago member and Oui Be Negroes founder) will teach a class on reaching out to Minority and female youth in improvisation.
All we need to do is get there.
Your generous contribution will offset the cost of travel and accomodations for eight funny African American women.
Your contribution to our Crowdrise for this fundraiser will not go unthanked. For each dollar you give Essence Improv for this fundraiser, you will get one raffle ticket for our Comic Con Fundraiser July 13th, happening here in Los Angeles at The Clubhouse (1107-A El Centro Ave). The winner will be announced at our show and cool prizes will be sent to you if you are the winner!
Prizes will include:
- One signed autograph book of Devil Inside (Written by Todd Stashwick, drawn by Denis Calero and featuring Shaun Landry drawn as Maga! (Mother Earth) http://www.toddstashwick.com/comic2.asp?E=144
- The Comic Con Survial Packages that will include everything you need to go to Comic Con: A pair of comfy socks for standing in line. A pillow for your behind to sit down. Good felt tip pens for autographs. A pack of Mylar Bags and Acid Free Backer Boards. Water and Mountain Dew.
All of our shows are free and by donation. All proceeds donated during our hour will go directly to helping us get to Hawaii. So you can come to the show too and pick up your prize. If you are not in Los Angeles, we will mail your gift to you!
Any amount is a wonderful amount and is greatly appreciated. We thank you in advance for supporting us.
