The last two years, shows gave a considerable donation towards making this happen: "Women who could not lift their heads six months ago, strutting across a stage." http://www.vday.org/node/2838
This time we're hoping to raise money for local charity Bede House http://www.bedehouse.org/, which has had all its domestic violence funding cut and runs out of money in April. Hopefully we can help them survive for a little while longer. Also, some of our money goes to the V Day spotlight charity which this year is setting up women's refuges in Haiti.
