This just in: another good reason to take your kids to Joseph or White Christmas at the 5th Avenue Theatre! This press release just arrived in my inbox.
SEATTLE, WA –The 5th Avenue Theatre has announced a partnership with Treehouse, a local non-profit dedicated to helping foster kids in King County. From now through November 1, the Theatre is sponsoring Coats for Kids to collect coat donations for kids living in foster care. Patrons who bring new or like-new coats to the Theatre will receive a 2-for-1 ticket coupon for select performances of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat or White Christmas.
Since 1988, Treehouse has filled the gaps for kids in foster care, providing services that no other agency addresses: money for extra-curricular activities and summer camp, professional educational support services, resources to fully participate in the everyday activities of growing up, clothing and supplies to help them fit in at school.
Patrons can bring coat donations to the Theatre when attending a performance or drop them by the box office during regular non-show box office hours. Coats must be new or like-new condition; worn-in coats will not be accepted. Joseph…coupon good for performances October 10–14, 2009. White Christmas certificate good for performances November 28 at 8:00 p.m., November 29 at 1:30 p.m. and December 1st & December 2nd at 7:30 p.m. Certificates not valid with any other offer or on previously purchased tickets, and this offer is subject to availability.
Whether it’s “red or yellow or green or brown or scarlet or black or ochre or peach,” your gift of a coat will help improve the lives of foster kids in the Seattle area and help keep them warm in the months to come.
