On Monday CCdd held a fundraiser at the amazing Jake's on 6th wine bar in Hillcrest! Thank you again Jake's for letting us host it! Here, Soroya recaps:
What do you get when you combine booze, break-up songs, food, and friends? Only the funnest fund-raiser this side of Hillcrest!
Monday night Circle gathered together at Jakes Wine Bar on 6th Avenue to entertain our beloved friends and neighbors while raising money for the company. We played music, ate cheese, drank our weight in red wine all in the name of the theatre.
Thanks to Jakes on 6th for giving us a portion of their proceeds for the night. I’m not usually one to brag but...we packed the joint. “It was like a Friday!” exclaimed Jen around midnight as we were packing up. Jen is both bartender and daughter to the family-owned establishment.
Highlights of the evening included a duet of “Hallelujah” by Artistic Director Katie Harroff and Technical Director Patrick Kelly. Also a dance-off between Sam Ginn and Ashley Toolan to a cover of “Dancing On My Own” (by Robyn) played by yours truly with my BFF Andrew Steele. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed Steve Schmitz’s rendition of “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by the one and only Britney Spears, and we closed the evening rocking out to talented Kyle Sorrell and his band with such classics as “F*CK You” by Ceelo.
