What’s Happening Around Town for October 28, 2012


The Producers 
It began 60 years ago with eight guys sitting around a poker table in a smoke-filled room on a Monday night, trying to figure out what to do with $600. Typically, they’d throw themselves a year-end bash with the money they put aside from each pot at their weekly poker game. But the talk had gotten around to doing something different that year – something for someone else. And that’s exactly what they did. 60 years later Help Youth Charities Fund has raised over $ 4.5 Million dollars towards its charter cause. "Helping handicapped and underprivileged children of every race, color & creed." This year they guys are putting up Mel Brooks’ The Producers November 1 -11 at the ACME Comedy Theatre on La Brea. The entire production is volunteer driven & ALL funds raised through the production will go towards our mission of helping the kids! Some past projects & programs funded include:
-Therapeutic Swimming pool for Physically Challenged Youth
-Training kitchen for multi-disability blind children.
-Woodworking shop to rehabilitate street kids.
-A voice synthesizer for a teenager without any vocal chords.
-Construction of special needs playground for disabled kids.
Tickets are $20 online at www.acmecomedy.com/tickets.htm and $25 at the door. Get them now!
