FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
California State University, Dominguez Hills to help raise money for womens shelter in City of Carson
California State University, Dominguez Hills, will host an award-winning theater production to help raise money for the Peace and Joy Womens Shelter in Carson, a program that provides food, clothing, and a safe place to stay for women and children who have been abused or abandoned.
The play, The Vagina Monologues, will be performed at 7 p.m., Wednesday, February 21, at the University Theater. Produced by Teatro Dominguez and co-sponsored by the universitys Womens Resource Center and Planned Parenthood, the event will be part of V-Day, designed to help end violence against women.
V-Day combines theatrical and artistic events in local, national, and international venues to raise money for combating violence against women, and The Vagina Monologues has been the centerpiece of the campaign since its inception.
The Womens Resource Center chose to donate proceeds from the play to the Peace and Joy Womens Shelter, said director Robyn McGee, because we appreciate its level of commitment to not only women, but to children, too. They do what they can to help people, and we think its important for us to do what we can to help them.
Further information about V-Day can be found at http://www.vday.org.
