Play for charity

Help those less fortunate this holiday season, whether it is your fellow man or a furry friend, by attending a special theater performance at 6:30 p.m. Monday (Nov. 10) presented by the talented students from Manatee School of the Arts.

The event is called "Short Stories and all Good," and will be held at the Manatee Players' Riverfront Theatre on 102 Twelfth St. W., Bradenton. From what I'm told, the "fun and heartfelt" short plays are original creations from the students themselves.

The only admission they require is one dry or canned food item per person. It can be people food or pet food. The treats will benefit some of the event sponsors, which include the Manatee Food Bank, Honor Sanctuary Animal Rescue and IAM Wealth Management. The sponsors hope that "Short Stories and all Good" will give families an inexpensive night out while allowing them to help other local families in need at the same time who will be struggling financially this holiday season.

If you're interested in attending the show, please RSVP as seating will be limited. Call 1-800-853-9972 to RSVP. For more information, call the Honor Sanctuary at 302-0933.
