It's our last rehearsal weekend before our first show of the WGI season. We cannot wait to show everyone what we have been creating, and our members are excited as well.
Each year Rhythm X, Inc. feeds all 100 cast members of our US WGI Ensembles every show weekend. Providing these meals ensures the performers are prepared mentally and physically for their performance and makes certain they have the time they need on show day to get ready, stay relaxed, and perform at the highest level. Since 2013 we've been providing every single meal for our performers on show day and 2017 will be no different.
Providing these meals is no easy task. With around 100 mouths to feed, both the cost and logistics can be a challenge. Fortunately, we've had incredible support from our parents and alumni to make this possible.
There are two ways you can help us feed X17. If you want to be in on the action, you can bring any portion of a meal to rehearsal and help serve along with other parents and alumni. Can't make it to a rehearsal or provide food? You can also donate and the Rhythm X, Inc. team or a parent helping serve a meal will ensure that your gift goes toward purchasing food for the cast.
To provide a meal visit our sign-up page here. Alternatively, you can make a donation towards meals at rhythmx.org/donate. Just make a note in the donation that you'd like the gift to go towards feeding the cast!
Feeding X17 is something we care deeply about and we're grateful for your support. If you have any questions about providing a meal please email firstname.lastname@example.org or with questions about donating to Rhythm X, Inc. contact us at email@example.com. Rhythm X, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. You will receive a reciept via email.
It's the first rehearsal of 2017 and the X17 shows are now coming together and taking shape. Only two more rehearsals till the first show!
As 2016 comes to an end, our story continues. We will see you in 2017.
