Looking for a great night out with world class entertainment, while also supporting a wonderful cause? We've got you covered. On Thursday, November 6th and Friday, November 7th, a special benefit performance of "You only shoot the one you love" will be held at the Riggi Theater at the National Museum of Dance. Presented by playwright and composer Jeffrey Sweet, The New York Times called the show "Entertaining and compelling" and NewYorkTheater.com described it as "One incredible story after another"
The best part? 100% of the ticket sales are donated to the Kigali Medical University Foundation, which provides scholarship assistance for students at the Kigali Medical University in Rwanda, Africa. Without this assistance, students who otherwise would not be able to pursue their dream of a medical career are able to do so.
Rwanda, a country of 11 million people, had previously only had one medical school in the entire country and only 1 doctor per 36,000 Rwandans. This all changed in 2013 when the Kigali Medical University opened and enrolled it's first class of 94 Rwandan men and women. A huge source of support for these students has been the annual fundraiser, held in here in Saratoga Springs spearheaded by John Streit. So, get your calendars out and pick a day to come see this fabulous show, which will be followed by a reception with wine and hor d'oeuvres.. call John at (518) 893-7301 for tickets or click right here for details!
