Cabaret for a Cause – Jenny Wynter’s mission

Cabaret Confessional

Do you keep up with Matthew Carey’s cabaretconfessional.com ? Just in case you missed it, there’s a big event happening on Saturday in Adelaide, which our friend, Jenny Wynter, is involved in.

We thought you should know that even if you’re not in Adelaide, you can help this crazy comedienne reach her goal! Jenny is hoping to raise $10 000 for the

2012 Cara TV Charity Challenge.

In fact, there are a few ways to help

Jenny Wynter

Jenny is freaking out because she has just a few days to reach her goal!

I love what Matthew Carey has written about choosing and supporting your preferred cause so here it is.

From Matthew Carey at Cabaret Confessional:

I know it. You know it. Everyone knows it. There are ever increasing numbers of charities and pozible campaigns looking for money. None of us can afford to support all of them. We can’t even support all the ones we’d like to.

Which leaves you with two options – ignore them all and buy yourself an iPhone 5, or find the few that you really connect with and get behind those causes with whatever support you can offer.

I met Jenny Wynter through my Cabaret Summer School last January. The first thing I realised about her is that when Jenny is passionate about something, she’ll dive right into it. She flew down from her home near Brisbane to join the Cabaret Class of 2012 and was a truly vibrant and much loved member of our group. Enthusiasm like hers is contagious, so I was thrilled to invite her back to Adelaide in February to join a cabaret tour of Adelaide metro theatres and to be involved in her Fringe season of An Unexpected Variety Show.

I read on her Comic Mummy website that she’d be returning to Adelaide to participate in the Cara TV Charity Challenge and I knew I wanted to do something to help. As she describes it, it is an Amazing Race style show in which Australians also raise funds for charity. The opportunity came about through her performances in the Adelaide Fringe and is a fantastic way for her to build her profile as a performer and support a cause she believes in.

I know from my own experience that when there’s a call to action for someone that I know, or is in my community, there’s a much larger incentive for me to step up and show my support. I’ve already donated $50 but I know there is more I can do. I can make sure you know you can go to this page and donate any amount you like and I can pull together a bunch of fantastically talented to performers who are willing to share their time and talents to support a person and a cause they believe in.

CABARET FOR A CAUSE will be held Saturday September 29 at 2.30pm and is being hosted by the generous and very funky team at La Boheme in Grote Street

Tickets booked via cabaretconfessional.com are $25 and are tax deductible.

Cabaret for a Cause

 

My goal is for us to raise $2000 towards Jenny’s target of $10K through this event.

Cabaret friends and family, this is where I’m calling for your support. Cabaret for a Cause will be an afternoon that promises to be great fun. These performers are all brilliantly talented and passionate about cabaret and performing.

You can show your own support by doing any of the following:

A) Book a TICKET to see Cabaret for a Cause

Go to http://www.everydayhero.com.au/jenny_wynter donate $25 per ticket and type “Cabaret for a Cause ” in the message box. Your booking will be noted and your name will be on the door at La Boheme for the show!

B) Book a VIRTUAL TICKET to Cabaret for a Cause

Not everyone will be able to make it on the day, but that doesn’t prevent you from showing your support. Go to http://www.everydayhero.com.au/jenny_wynter donate $25 and type “VIRTUAL TIX ” in the message box. I will personally make sure you receive a souvenir from the show!

C) LIKE. SHARE. REPOST. RETWEET.

This deserves support from everyone who loves cabaret! Feel free to re-post this page or its information via facebook, twitter, email or on your own site. If you have an email list of friends and fans it would be wonderful if you could share this information with them and encourage their support.

D) SHOW JENNY WYNTER SOME LOVE

She’s set herself the task of raising $10K in 8 weeks. Even someone as full of love and enthusiasm as Jenny needs a little encouragement now and then. Find her on facebook, on twitter or on youtube. Send her a message and remind her that she’s got an enormous number of supporters behind her.
