Call for vendors & donations: Respect Your Mother Furniture Restoration Event

Event: Respect Your Mother
Location: Sol Collective
2574  21st.
Sacramento , CA 95818
Date: May 10, 2014
Time: 10am-­4pm

Two local nonprofits, Vox Sacramento and Sol Collective, are co­-hosting Respect Your Mother, a fundraiser for a furniture restoration program they will be offering in the future. This will be an earth­-friendly event with eco-­conscious vendors selling their goods, local food and acoustic music.

They are asking for donations of small, unwanted furniture that local artists will paint and place in their live auction. There will also be a raffle that will promote local businesses and the artists community.

In conjunction with this fundraiser, they are also hosting a clothing drive where people are welcomed to drop off bags of unwanted clothing and linens that will be sent to California Clothing Recyclers. The  unwanted items are sent to wholesale buyers overseas and Respect Your Mother will be sent a  check for the amount recycled, which will go back into our program.

Respect Your Mother is putting an open call for anyone who wants to donate clothing, any artists  who want to paint the furniture, any eco-­friendly vendors who want to sell at the fundraiser, and any
local businesses who want to donate to the raffle and/or host a clothing drive.

Please help us spread the word! All communication can be directed to Amanda Branham at  mamabecrafty@gmail.com.

Stay tuned for an update as we get closer to the event!

Runaway Stage Productions presents family favorite Suessical the Musical

SACRAMENTO — Seussical the Musical, the perfect musical for families and theatregoers of all ages comes to Runaway Stage Productions February 28 – March 23 at the 24th Street Theatre. Tickets are available online at www.runawaystage.com or through the Box Office at 916-207-1226.
The incredible Cat in the Hat narrates a magical story featuring the very best of Dr. Seuss characters and stories.
“There is Horton the Elephant, Jojo, Mazie, and Gertrude,” RSP Producing Director Bob Baxter said. “We have great characters that jump off the page and come to life on the stage. Did you see what I did there? Rhyme?”
Horton discovers a speck of dust on which the Whos live. Among those Whos, the child Jojo finds himself at “butter battling military school” for thinking to many “thinks.” Horton's attention to the speck of dust and his "loitering" care of Mayzie LaBird's egg elicits taunting and accusations from the rest of the animal kingdom, except for Gertrude McFuzz, who longs for his attention, and JoJo, whose "thinks" save them all in the end. 
“Dr. Seuss has a message that everyone can relate to,” Baxter said. “It is a kind, humorous and sincere message.”
Runaway last produced the musical with great success in 2005. The new cast will feature Andy Hyun as the Cat in the Hat, Colin Coate as Horton, Caitland Martin as Gertrude McFuzz, Haleyanne Freedman as Mayzie LaBird, Maxwell Freedman as JoJo, Hal DuBiel as the Mayor, and Eduard Arakelyan as one of the Wickersham brothers. Bob Baxter directs, Darryl Strohl choreographs and James Lohman leads the Runaway Stage Productions Resident Orchestra.
