The Big Check.
The headline you see above is the result of some pretty serious brainstorming earlier… I was pretty stuck. Harvey, however, seemed to have no trouble whatsoever dishing out one cheesy headline after another. He really might want to consider changing jobs…
We couldn’t be more happy with the tremendous outpouring of generosity we experienced at yesterday’s performance of Romeo + Juliet. Thank you to all who attended and gave so generously. Through your kindness, our performers raised L$22,476, in tips, which Harvey and I each matched to bring the total contribution to $L67,428, which we donated to the Love Donna Flora cause earlier today.
Harvey and I would like to thank all the cast and crew of Basilique Performing Arts Company A – Harvey, Amethyst, Belice, Cloe and Juliet, who were more than happy to give their hard-earned tips from the enthusiastic crowd.
Performing in front of a crowd, and getting a good reaction, is always a pleasure, but when we can help out a fantastic cause in even a small way, it makes it that much more rewarding. So rewarding in fact, that we’ve decided to keep our eyes open for other fundraising events that we can lend a hand to. We’d love to hear about good causes that we could help.

Just a very quick message to let you know that a very special benefit performance of Romeo + Juliet will be showing at 12 NOON SLT at the Basilique Playhouse today (Sunday, August 11, 2013).
Harvey Crabsticks and I will be donating all of our tips from this performance to the Love Donna Flora cause. Furthermore, we will personally be matching any tips the performers receive on the Sunday, August 11th performance of Romeo + Juliet.
Join us! And, if you can’t make it today, here is more information about performance dates and the play.
After being hopelessly outbid by all and sundry on Caoimhe Lionheart‘s auction for 3 hours of her time that she is donating to Love Donna Flora (that I was going to use for styling advice), I shot down to the benefit sim to see what I could muster on my own steam. There are loads of gems down there and there are still a few days to not only pick up some great pieces, but also give to a worthwhile cause.
I picked up a few things today at the benefit sim, including this Vero Modero Wild Dress that I’m wearing above and below. As I was trying it on, surrounded by all of this selfless generosity, I got to thinking: what could I do to help beyond buying a few things here and there? After briefly chatting things over with Cao, it occurred to me that we could be doing something with Romeo + Juliet to help the cause.
So, to help cap off the end of Love Donna Flora this Sunday, August 11th, I’ll be donating all proceeds from this Sunday’s performance of Romeo + Juliet, and matching all tips received by all performers over that performance. I’ve spoken to the other performers, and the ones I’ve heard back from have agreed to also donate their tips.
So, come and watch us do our bit for Squinternet Larnia, this Sunday at noon SLT, August 11th at the Basilique Playhouse. Entry is free, but don’t forget to bring your purses and pockets, as we put a little extra Linden love into the greatest love story ever written. I hope you’ll join us!
