The Vagina Monologues Needs Volunteers!
From The Vagina Monologues Staff
Volunteers get in for free, and this is what is needed: 2 ushers, 4 people to hold up posters, 3 people to handle V.I.P., and some crew men on Friday. On Saturday, we need 2 people to pass out programs, 3 ushers, 4 people to handle V.I.P., and some crew men. We also would like people to handle donations, but we need to fill up the other positions first. Here I've attached a description of the Vagina Monologues form the FMLA-UTEP facebook page. This year, we expect to have fire dancers and contortionist perform along with other entertainment. The play will be at UTEP's Magoffin Auditorium this Friday and Saturday. Doors will open at 6 p.m., and the show will start at 7:30 p.m. I highly recommend this show. It's a show that consists of a whole variety of different monologues. Some are hilarious, some are touching, but all are educational in some way. My first time going was last year and I was blown a way by all that the show offered.
About the Vagina Monologues:
A SHOW YOU DON'T WANNA MISS! The Vagina Monologues is a play which is part of a larger movement to stop violence against women. The play deals with a wide range of the female experience and is an eye-opener for most males. Last year we raised over $14,000 with most going to the El Paso Child Crisis Center and 10% going to the City of Joy in the Congo. The Spotlight this year is Haiti due to the high levels of violence against women and girls, specifically the increased rates of sexual violence since the devastating earthquake that took place in January 2010. All funds raised through the Spotlight Campaign will be used to support a revolutionary national campaign in Haiti lead by a coalition of women activists - including longtime V-Day activist Elvire Eugene - that will address sexual violence through art, advocacy, safe shelter and legal services. 90% of the procedes will locally benefit the Reynolds Home ( a homeless women's shelter)! A silent auction will be held featuring local artists and vendors. Local non profits will be tabling and disseminating information. Help us reach our goal of $20,000 this year! Tickets on sale at ticketmaster.com and days of the show $10 general admission and $20 VIP seating.
