The Mental Health Association of Columbia-Greene Counties with REACH Services would like to thank the community for your remarkable support of our One Billion Rising events.
One Billion Rising is an international call to men and women to refuse to accept violence against women and girls as a given.
The agency sponsored three local events on February 14th, and a fundraiser play, The Vagina Monologues, at Stageworks/Hudson on February 15th. We had a sold out crowd at the theatre. A very special thanks to the following for their support:
CAST & MUSIC:
*Laura Margolis and her staff at Stageworks – Laura directed the play an opened her theatre to us. *The 3 incredibly talented actresses – Elena Mosley, Stephanie Monseu & Kim Sykes who made us all laugh and cry. *Cathy Grier, aka NYC Subway Girl, for providing the live music during the performance. *The Meadow House Trio for entertaining the crowd during the reception.
*Special thanks to the Columbia-Greene Community College, the Hudson Opera House, and Petite Productions for opening their spaces for the February 14th celebrations.
