Cabaret & Desserts raises funds to fight cancer
Submitted By Georgia Barnes
The Silver Lining is an all-female a cappella group, formed over six years ago by Lisa Silver. Their fundraising journey started when Lisa's dear friend, Barbara, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Lisa decided to bring a variety of musically inclined ladies together to create the singing group, with the intention of raising money in the fight against this dreaded disease. In a six-year period, on a very part-time basis, the group has raised close to $80,000! Why "The Silver LiningÓ? There are two ways to look at cancer, as well as life Ð glass half full or half empty. Barbara always lived with that "glass half full" attitude up until the day she left this world. Lisa cannot cure cancer, but she can fundraise.
The Silver Lining and Chanticleers Theatre present the fourth annual ÒAfternoon of Cabaret & DessertsÓ event on Sunday, September 24, the main fundraiser for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's ÒLight the Night Walk.Ó The walk is held every fall and its mission is to build awareness of blood cancers as well as raise money for research and support of patients and their families. The Silver Lining continues to sing in the hope that "someday" will be today, and the word "cancer" can be eradicated from our vocabulary all together.
Please join us at Chanticleers Theatre in Castro Valley for an amazing afternoon of incredible entertainment, including vocalists, dancers, comedians, impersonators, and a phenomenal R&B act called Project4Band. Your ticket price of $30 includes the show, unlimited decadent desserts, and one free raffle ticket for the opportunity to win some exciting prizes (must be present to win)! Additional raffle tickets can be purchased at the door for $1 each, or $20 for as long as your arm! There will be separate pricing for a special Grand Prize Ð a Disneyland package including admission to Disneyland and a two-night stay at the Worldmark Resort in Anaheim (valued at approximately $800). Raffle tickets for the Grand Prize are $5 each, or 5 for $20 (need not be present to win). Imagine going to Disneyland for a fun weekend getaway and telling everyone it cost you $5! All proceeds are donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Tickets for the Afternoon of Cabaret & Desserts and for the special Grand Prize raffle can be purchased online at tinyurl.com/SilverLining-Cabaret, or bought at the door on the afternoon of the event. For more information about the Light the Night Walk, visit www.lightthenight.org.
