Money for something

Every year about this time, I grovel. Begging has become one of my core competencies. I don’t mind, though. First of all, these are good causes. Second, it makes for a relatively easy post. Win-win.

The events are also win-win because, while these worthy causes get much-needed help, you get something for your money: a fun time!

Servants for Haiti Trivia Night and Silent Auction

TriviaNightLogoSmallThis year marks the 6th annual edition of this exciting event. The trivia is a blast – with yours truly (truly!) as the trivia jockey – and the silent auction is a collection of incredible buys, some one-of-a-kind. Funds raised this evening will benefit SFH‘s Biznis Pam program, which trains Haitian woman how to start and maintain their own businesses. Then they provide micro-loans to get the budding entrepreneurs going.

This is a great program that deserves our help. Join me on Friday April 10, 2015, at 7 PM. For complete details, click here.

Bike MS: Ride the Vineyard 2015

MSMVThis is a combination of three of my favorite things: Martha’s Vineyard, cycling, and raising money to crush MS. You can be part of this event by donating money to my ride or to my team.

Staged reading of “Me for You”, a romantic comedy

PastedGraphicFinalNN-1Can’t decide whether to support Haiti or fight MS? Do both at this event. Half the proceeds will go to SFH’s Biznis Pam program and the other half will support the MS Society through the MV bike ride. Here’s what you’ll be seeing:

On Saturday night, April 18, at 7 PM, at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts, there will be a “staged reading” of an original PG-rated romantic comedy called “Me for You”. The cost is only $10 and includes chances to win cool movie-related door prizes.

Staged readings are common in the film development process as a way to promote unproduced screenplays. This script will be read live by actors in the intimate setting of the CCA Cabaret Cafe. You get a fun evening at the “movies”, help two great causes, and, if the script ever gets produced, get bragging rights as previewers.


There you go: Money for something, win-win. And a blog post knocked off for the week.

It doesn’t get any better than that.

      As Ben and Jerry put it, “If it’s not fun, why do it?” But that’s mere hedonism if it isn’t balanced by the wisdom of another of my favorite philosophers, Kid President: “If it doesn’t make the world better – don’t do it.” I got’em both covered!
