Serve Those Who Serve You
It’s easy to forget in the hustle and bustle of the world, that without the people who make up our educational system, healthcare system and food services, we would be in some serious trouble. From every level within an organization, it is the people within that organization that makes it work. We felt it time to honor them and give back to our community. Remember, this community serves us so we have a need need to serve them as well. In conjunction with Northwest Neurological PLLC, we created a special “thank you” night dedicated to the people that provide services to us (health, education and food services). What makes this night so special, is that those people in the service industry have a chance to see Les Miserables for only $5. The benefit night was sold out in a matter of days.
Those Who Serve Us, Care for Us
We should be honoring the service industry. Think about it. When was the last time you visited a care facility like a hospital or an assisted living facility? All of those wonderful people work together to take care of you or your loved ones. Have you eaten at a restaurant and then thanked the person that washed the dishes you ate off of? How about the janitor who had a part in your child’s education? Some of those people that may not have the means to pay for a full price ticket to Les Miserables. Maybe they have never seen live theatre. This evening is to celebrate them.
It is the Music of the People Who are Rising to the Light
The director of Les Miserables, Douglas Webster brought this concept to the table. We wanted to express appreciation to the workers whose contributions to everyday life are sometimes overlooked yet impact each of us – our families – our friends – our community in some way. In order to make this happen, we needed partners. Northwest Neurological PLLC liked the idea and agreed to sponsor in part, a portion of the costs. Music Theatre International also understood our goal and offered us the rights for Les Miserables at a special rate. The cast and crew were excited to be a part of this giving back to the community. Without their buy in – we would not have been able to make this happen!
