Chicago Fall 2019 Newsletter #2
Fall Cabaret, Fundraisers, State Thespian Conference and more...
Chicago rehearsals are well underway and things are looking good according to Jessica! And there's so much else going on for the club. Please take a look at this newsletter for everything you need to know this week.
The Fall Cabaret is this Saturday night at 7pm!
We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday night to enjoy some music, comedy and friendship in the Choir Cabaret Lounge. Refreshments will be available for sale.
Thespian Conference Deposit Due Friday 10/4
Just a reminder that the $100 deposit is due on Friday for anyone interested in attending the PA State Thespian Conference in York, PA in January. A detailed letter was emailed to all families. Please contact Suzanne if you did not receive it. The letter is also posted in the Band app and your student can access it there. Please note that the cost provided was an absolute maximum and we plan to apply some of the fundraising money toward the transportation for this trip. We would like everyone interested to attend this conference. If you have any financial concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Jessica to discuss financial support for the trip.
Pizzeria Uno's Fundraiser Day/Night Wednesday 10/23
Take a night off from cooking and get into the mood for our fall show with some Chicago style pizza! The fundraiser will run from 11am to close. Flyers will be coming home with all the details.
Broadway Breakfast at Cafe with Soul Saturday October 26th, 8-11am
We are really excited to announce that the CB West Harlequin Club will be the first group to offer live entertainment at the newly opened restaurant, Cafe with Soul. This nonprofit restaurant is established with the mission to raise funds to support music and STEM programs in our district. We will be creating our own little Ellen's Stardust Diner (New York City) right here in Doylestown! Our students will perform a few songs from Chicago to promote the show along with other Broadway favorites. Students interested in being considered for solos, duets, trios should send an email to Jessica. Details coming soon, but for now mark your calendars!

Harlequin Family Members in Need
We know there are so many requests for money coming at you, but we are asking one more time. There are two people very close to our Harlequin family who are fighting cancer right now. We would like to send them some gift cards for useful food/services to help them get through this tough time and show our support. At this time we are not sure if either person has gone public with their situation so we are not sharing names. But we would very much appreciate anything you could give to support these women and their families. Donations can be sent to Jenny Zliceski (Tyler's Mom). Contact her if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be at the cabaret on Saturday night if you'd like to give her something then. Please make sure any cash that comes in is in an envelope with Jenny's name on it. Students can give money to Ryan Hartnett (treasurer) or Tyler. Thanks so much!
