A portion of proceeds benefit The Rotary Club of the Villages Foundation- Ukraine Relief Fund. Stephanie Fernung, President, Rotary Club of the Villages Foundation states “The local area clubs are collecting funds through our club foundation and connecting with Rotary clubs affected by the war. The foundation donates the funds directly because we feel that the club leaders and members in Ukraine know best what is the most dire need at any time. Working with Rotarians we have no worries that the funds are used properly. I would like to personally thank SMASH Productions for reaching out to The Rotary Club of The Villages Foundation and assisting us with reaching people in need!’
Broadway Heroes & Villains Tickets are on sale starting July 20, 2020 at all Villages Box Offices or thevillagesentertainment.com. For more information on SMASH Productions contact Susan Feinberg
