Dear Vagina Warriors,
As some of you may know, I am organizing V-Day Gainesville 2007 with the
help of Sarah Segars (Assistant Organizer), Melissa Koerner
(Marketing/Publicity) and Samara Crutchfield (Co-Director). But
we need YOU too! The more
people we have involved the bigger and better (and less stressful for any
individual folks) it can be. Here is a brief outline of the plans for V-Day
Gainesville 2007 thus far.
V-Day Benefit Concert
Sunday, February 18 at the Sidebar downtown. So far redboy
has agreed to play and we are looking for 3 more bands to join the
festivities. The local CODEPINK chapter has expressed interest in assisting with
the concert as well as the Organizer of UF's V-Day.
Vagina Monologues -
Performances are Saturday and Sunday February 24 and 25 at the Unitarian
Universalist Fellowship at 8pm. There will also be an open dress rehearsal for
donations on the Thursday prior (Feb 23). There will be a readthrough in early
January but rehearsals won't really get going until the end of January. Audition
dates are not yet set.
Beneficiaries - We have decided
to make Chrysalis Community and Peaceful Paths the beneficiaries for this
year. Peaceful Paths is also serving as our fiscal sponsor.
Things we would love to do if we find someone
who wants to organize them:
A Silent Art Auction durring the performances with an unveiling of
the pieces at the concert (some how) and bidding would start Thursday night at
the open dress rehearsal (or maybe not until Friday?).
A Men's Component to V-Day, the men's campaign is called Men Can
Stop Rape. Not sure what all this could incorporate but I would really like to
have an information table at the concert and performances with someone willing
to hand out litterature.
If you would like to be involved in ANY WAY please let
me know by replying to this e-mail or calling me at 352-562-1688. If you choose
to reply to the e-mail please say in the message what it is you would like to
help with (i.e. I want to be in the production of The Vagina Monologues, I want
to organize the Silent Art Auction, etc).
If anything, please go to www.myspace.com/vdaygainesville
and become a V-Friend so you don't miss any important announcments. PLEASE
FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO ANYONE ELSE YOU THINK MAY BE INTERESTED!!!
Thank you for your support of the powerful and peaceful vagina.
