May – June 2013
CultureWest’s first public event will invite all-comers to step up to the mic and step up for the Colorado theater community. This unique night of karaoke silliness will plant the seeds for the creation of the Denver Actors Fund, a new resource that will make emergency funds available to members of the Colorado theater community when they encounter emergency medical hardship.
Sing a song, vote for your favorites with your wallets, or, best of all, put our “preferred performing panel to work.” Choose from among Colorado’s most popular actors and make them sing any song you want to hear — in any combination of performers you choose. Join us for a night of unique late-night fun that will build community while creating a new way to help people in unexpected need.
HOW IT WILL WORK:
*Want to sing a song? Toss a buck in the jar along with your song request.
*Want to hear, say, Seth Caikowski sing “Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore” as a duet with Joel Adam Chavez? Submit your song request, along with who you want to sing it, with $10, and it will happen.
Want to vote for your favorite performance? Do it with dollars. Our dry-erase tote board will chart how the voting is going. If your favorite performance is lagging — throw more money in the jar. There will be prizes for the top three performances, but all cash donated will go toward starting the Denver Actors Fund.
ABOUT THE DENVER ACTORS FUND
We have seen regular recent examples of members of our community finding themselves in great and sudden need: Shelly Bordas’ terminal cancer diagnosis. Frank Oteri and Max Peterson having colon surgery. Robert Michael Sanders botched shoulder surgery leaving him without the use of his hands. Actors, designers, directors, writers, directors and technical crew often live on the edge, without steady outside employment or health insurance. The Denver Actors Fund will be a modest, discretionary resource that will make some emergency funds available on a case-to-case basis, based on situation and present health of the fund. It will also contribute to memorial and scholarship funds when members of our community pass away. This first Step Up to the Mic event will raise the seed money that will allow us to open the account, which will be regularly replenished by similar fundraising evenings, as well as public and private donations.
Join the Coterie business networking group for a delightful happy hour with food, drink specials, and admission into all shows that night!
