From Erin in the Real World

Hey KC Bloggers -
It's about time we get together again, and let's support another local charity while we catch up.
On Friday, April 24, Gilda’s Club Kansas City is bringing The Second City Touring Company’s latest hit show, “Deface the Nation” to town. Proceeds from the comedy-improv show will help open Gilda’s Club Kansas City. Does Second City sound familiar? That's because you know a ton of their alumni: Mike Myers, Steve Carell, Joan Rivers, and Tina Fey, just to name a few. And this year, the show will be hosted by former KC resident and SNL actor, Jason Sudeikis. Jason is participating in honor of his mother, Kathy Sudeikis, who is a breast cancer survivor. Jason isn't just on SNL, he's also a Shawnee Mission West grad - '94, represent!
Tickets are $50 and include the improv show and a cast party with decadent desserts, champagne and a Roasterie coffee bar. When I say decadent, I mean ridiculously tasty off the diet and forget about Lent amazing. We're talking Christopher Elbow, Andre's, Panache, the list goes on.
There's also going to be a raffle for two tickets to SNL. These tickets are totally choice and hard to come by. Raffle tickets are $20/1 or $100/6. You don't have to be present to win!
With support from this event, Gilda’s Club Kansas City hopes to open their doors as soon as possible. More than 60,000 people in the KC metro area living with cancer and nearly every person in the metro area is affected. Gilda’s Club Kansas City will provide free support and networking groups, lectures, workshops and social events in a homelike setting for anyone touched by cancer, including children.
