FIRST, I’ll explain.
Through work, I’ve been roped into doing a 5K – nothing I haven’t done before – this one is called the Climb for Hope, and it’s a fundraiser for cancer research. It’s known for the participants wearing…outlandish costumes.
There are over 20 of us from my office running and/or walking. Our team is called the Rock N’ Runners. And our goals are very modest – we’ve been asked to raise $100 each.
So, I’ll make a deal with anyone who reads this page, and would like to donate for me. Whoever donates the most will GET TO DECIDE WHAT I WEAR. And if you know me, you know I’ll do it.
I ask you to consider only one thing: it’s meant to be a family-friendly show.
So: DONATE HERE and pick!
You have only two more chances to catch Stories of Love & Hate before the Village of the Fringe closes. Tomorrow, Saturday, August 25 at noon, and Sunday, August 26 at 8 pm. Tickets here!
Here is where to buy tickets for Stories of Love & Hate!
Edmonton Fringe programs are now on sale too all over the city – pick one up and see everything there is to see.
So the Toga & Burlesque fundraiser raised the roof last night. Thanks again to all our donors – Sobeys, the Black Sheep Pub, Sharon Skwarchuk, Kimberly Budd, Jessie McKitrick, and the Colonescu family, our own beautiful Nicole, Gino Akbari and photographer Steve Barr – for their donations allowing us to thank our partygoers. And thank you to our audience for coming to support the show and having such a great time! Thanks also to the Irish Sports & Social Society for hosting us (and provided beer!), and the wonderful Lucky L’amour and Delilah Manhandler of Capital City Burlesque for their performances. Thanks especially to our own sound designer Darrell Portz, who won the 50/50 draw (no joke!), and then donated his winnings back to the show. We adore Darrell.
So feast your eyes on the photos and remember, this is but a preview for the SHOW. Details of the venue and times for Stories of Love & Hate at the Edmonton Fringe will be coming very shortly.
So, fans of stories of love and hate, it’s only a week until the fabulous party to end them all, and here are some details of what you can expect.
With every ticket will come a chance for amazing Door Prizes — gift cards for free groceries and a fantastic Edmonton pub, lovely bath and beauty products — “smelly stuff” as our Cupid would say! — and a few fascinating handmade fascinators are all up for grabs.
For the Silent Auction we have pole dance lessons from Venus herself, the beautiful Nicole Grainger, plus a dance lesson from our ultra-cool colleague Gino Akbari, and a professional photo shoot. Each will be available to the highest bidder.
And don’t forget the best 50 / 50 draw, ever. What makes it so great? Buy enough tickets, and you get a HUG.
And then, of course, there’s our LIVE SHOW. Members of the magnificent Capital City Burlesque Troupe, songs by our own Nicole and Maria, and enticing previews of both Stories. Tickets available at the door, $10. Ten bucks! And Doug can vouch for HOW GOOD the Guinness is. So join the party at the Irish Club, June 15. Doors will open at 7 pm, show begins at 8!
