My friend Ito Kish has always been trying to find ways to give back and make this world better. Last Christmas he held an impromptu 2-for-1 sale of his fabulous items all for the benefit of flood victims in Mindanao. I snapped up two of his fish bowls. They now belong to me and Ingrid. It was a fantastic way to help.
This season he is raising funds for the Black Pencil Project, an organization that buys school supplies for children in need in the Philippines. So to add fun to this campaign, Kish sponsored one night of CareDivas, a fun and funny musical. All proceeds from the sale of tickets on April 27th will go to the Black Pencil Project.
PRESS RELEASE – After a highly successfully opening last February 2011, Care Divas continued to perform for raving audiences in encore performances during the months of April, May, June, July and December. Due to insistent public demand, PETA is once again mounting the play, this time bringing it to the heart of Makati.
Liza Magtoto’s CARE DIVAS – a disarmingly funny and candid musical drama telling the stories of five Filipino transgender migrant workers who immigrated to Israel to work as health care providers for the elderly and who in their spare time, perform as drag queens. While desperate to make ends meet in another country, they also struggle to search for freedom and acceptance. Directed by PDI’s BRAVO Director of the Year, Maribel Legarda and scored by award-winning composer and singer Vincent de Jesus.
For a night, have fun with the Divas and help out the kids!
