Vampires In The News - BillsBabes Day 2012
We here at Vampire Empire have worked with Stephen Moyer, True Blood's Vampire Bill, in the past, to help raise awareness and funds for the work he does with the Brentwood Theatre and support of the kids.
This year Billsbabes Day is held on April 28 and the donations will go to the Stephen Moyer Kids Theatre Fund of Brentwood Theatre in support of their activities for kids. Here's the letter we received from Bill's fine folks running the event:
TOMORROW is BillsBabes Day. Please help to keep kids' theatre alive! As I am sure you are aware, the outstandingly talented Stephen Moyer kindly accepted, a few years back, our invitation to become our Patron.
Since that time he has raised our profile, especially overseas and YOUR theatre has received a huge number of donations from his legions of fans who want to ensure we can keep on running.Initially donations ensured the fit out of The Audrey Longman Studio, but we continue to receive other donations, not least the annual sponsorship of The Brents by Sherry Kramer.
All this they do without any gain for themselves. A constant network of ideas and support, it is especially the BillsBabes led by Shadaliza, Lynn PD and Zuzanna and many more who have ensured that the Christmas show, a key feature of our year, has gone ahead in the past two years.
And once more, they are fundraising again with a dedicated BillsBabes day, tomorrow. Their aim is to raise TWO THOUSAND dollars which we can then use to subsidize local schools who otherwise could not afford to come along.
Those additional ticket sales have ensured that we have continued to produce a Christmas show. So, how can you help? Well, tomorrow alongside two performances by a local dance school, a lady who I am dying to meet is running a fundraising day here at the Theatre, selling cakes and other items.
So, if you are passing, please drop in and treat yourself from noon. You may also wish to make a cash donation, which you can do on Paypal via the AllStephenMoyer website.
May I take this opportunity to personally thank Jayne for coming along tomorrow to run the cake sales, in the knowledge that I can barely be around due to other commitments, and to the amazing Shadaliza, Lynne PD, Zuzanna and, of course, the big-hearted Jean A without whom this may never have happened in the first place. Regards
Thanks Mark, for giving us the heads up and including us in such a great event. We hope it does extremely well and you exceed your goal!
P.S. - Tell Jean we said Hello!
Please feel free to email us with suggestions and comments. We are always looking for ways to improve the 'Empire' and put in information that would help our fellow vampire enthusiasts!
