On Thursday, April 23, 2015 Children’s Center will host a benefit dinner featuring musician, actor, playwright, and author Storm Large. Storm’s award winning one woman show, Crazy Enough, broke every box office record at Portland Center Stage in 2010. Her book, of the same name, released in 2013 was Oprah’s book of the week and won the 2013 Oregon Book Award. She has performed with the New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, the Cincinnati Symphony, The Houston Symphony, and The RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin among others. Storm regularly tours with Pink Martini.
During the evening Storm will perform and will share her experience of growing up with a family member who lived with mental illness. Storm, then, will not only entertain the guests with her music but also help lift the culture of silence and stigma surrounding mental illness. The event will raise vital funds to provide children and youth in our community with high quality mental health services.
Tickets are $125 per person, Couple Tickets are $230, and a Table for Ten is $1150. Your admission provides you with a great evening with Storm Large, a three course meal, a glass of wine or two AND helps to provide hope and healing in the lives of children living with mental illness. A limited quantity of VIP Premium Tables for Four are available for $1000. These tables provide the best seats in the house, right in front of the stage, and only feet away from Storm Large. Tickets may be purchased at https://thechildrenscenter.ejoinme.org/TakenbyStorm.
Children’s Center is a Vancouver non-profit with the mission to serve children, youth and families through comprehensive community-based mental health services. The Center was founded in 1989 by a group of concerned citizens with the pledge that no child would wait for mental health services when in need and that its doors would be open to all, including those without the financial means to pay for services. Each year Children’s Center serves approximately 1,600 children and families. 93% of families served live in low income households, 10% of children are treated for issues related to sexual abuse, and 22% are victims of crime such as physical abuse and/or domestic violence.
