We just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who made our 3rd Annual Gala Fundraiser such a great event. We had a fantastic time and we raised some serious cash to run programs next year for underserved youth actors!
We especially want to say thank you to our two stars from “Days of our Lives” – Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols – who worked tirelessly and gave not only of their time, but their tremendous talent, to bring us such a special performance, in the staged reading of “Annapurna”. They both put in countless hours of rehearsal, and really poured their hearts into both roles. We at One World Stage & Screen cannot possibly express how proud we are to have them representing our organization – and how much we appreciate EVERYTHING they both have done for us in this past year. The successful funding of our organization is largely due to their efforts.
We also wanted to thank our amazing volunteers, for all of their hard work. We heard a lot of praise from guests at the event, on how wonderful our people were. We feel very blessed to have such great supporters around us.
Thanks to to all of the event sponsors of the evening – who helped make this party such a smashingly good time! The dessert and cocktail reception was a hit!
And lastly, this event would not have been so great without the backing of all those who were able to join us for the Gala! We are truly appreciative of all of your generosity and the outpouring of support you showed our charity – and all of the kind words so many of you had to say to us at the after-party. We want each of you to know how much each of your contributions will make – in changing the lives of these young performers.
One quick aside – we mentioned t-shirts at the event, and several of you have purchased them already. We just wanted to let you know that they are only going to be on sale for 2 more days… so if you want to get yours to commemorate the benefit and the staged reading of “Annapurna”, be sure to purchase by this Sunday, 11/20. Just go to https://teespring.com/2016owssgala to select your size and color.
From all of us at One World Stage & Screen – THANK YOU!!
