This month’s special guest is Empress Forty, Precious Cargo!
Also, this month’s co-beneficiary is (drum roll)…
Court of Seattle Scholarship Fund
Nobody does it quite like The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, The Abbey of St. Joan. They can sell a roll of raffle tickets or brighten any party faster than you can say one Hail Marry. Larger than life and covered in all their painted glory – these nuns got it going on!
Now, in collaboration with Neighbours Nightclub, the Sisters are bringing their habits – pun intended – to the stage every second Sunday of the month for Sinful 2nd Sunday from 6 – 10 p.m.
The concept behind Sinful 2nd Sunday is one of perpetual fundraising. The show is a great way to have fun and raise money for our grants cycle! Last year, the Abbey awarded over $21,000 to local non-profits. This year, the Sisters hope to raise much more.
Sinful 2nd Sunday is a twist on a regular nightclub cabaret infused with Sister’s flare; there’s a little bit of everything – song, dance, comedy – and a lot of fun!
Here is how it works: Each month, the Sisters pick a different co-beneficiary. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence “2011 Grants Fund” is the main beneficiary and receives the $5 donation at the door. A co-beneficiary is permitted to table at the show, and receives two “commercial” spots where they get to pitch their organization to the audience. In addition, the co-beneficiary can run a raffle with all the proceeds going to them.
Also, each Sinful 2nd Sunday, prize packages are generously donated by Dog House Leather and Channel 1 Releasing!
“Sinful 2nd Sunday is for the community,” says Sister Stella Standing. “It is our wish for people to know there is a new place to go to have fun and make a difference every second Sunday of the month! We love audience participation and there are tons of prizes at every show. Church is in session!”
