13 WISHES CABARET

Where: Electric Lodge

When: March 13, 2016

We worked with Local Non-Profits in the Venice, CA community to bring the arts to afterschool programs in schools where they are limited or non-existent. All profits from this performance went towards supporting these programs and some members of the cabaret also contributed their time to these afterschool programs.
