They're Off to See the Wizard!

The Stage Mothers are sponsoring the September 2, 530pm staging of Repertory Philippines' The Wizard of Oz.

Mia Rocha Lauchengco, Angela Tiutoc Lauchengco and Carmen Silverio Roxas make up the trio known as The Stage Mothers. Fueled by their love of theatre and their desire to help those who have been severely affected by the recent Habagat, these three moms couldn't just sit there and helplessly watch those who are in dire need of help. Instead, they put their desires into action and decided to put on this charity show for the benefit of the Philippine Red Cross and Angel Brigade. Yes, ALL PROCEEDS from this show will be donated to these two beneficiaries.

A few days ago, the Houston-based Texas Association of the Philippines very graciously sponsored 25 balcony tickets for less privileged children undergoing empowerment programs (through art, reading, etc) by the ATD Fourth World Philippines, an NGO that is taking care of over 150 families in three communities.

This gesture got the Stage Mothers very excited! Aside from raising funds for the two charities mentioned, Mia and her friends realized that they could also find sponsors for more kids who may have never seen a musical in their life!

A balcony ticket costs P300. Their goal is to bring in a total of 100 kids. Thus, they need to raise P22,500 more plus about P10,000 for transportation, or a total of P32,500. Contributions will be listed under your name (or initials) in

Should you wish to take part in this worthy cause, you may reach the Stage Mothers at 09175334206 or at 09175288085.
