STATEN ISLAND, NY — If you’re a Staten Islander, then you know how far reaching the good works of South Shore Rotary Club are. And for their good hearts and invaluable philanthropy for borough residents in need — from disaster relief to aiding those battling cancer, to name only tow — the Sundog Theatre Company will be honoring the South Shore Rotary at its annual gala, “The Sundog Soiree,” on Thursday, Nov. 2, at Li Greci’s Staaten, 697 Forest Ave., from 6:30-9 p.m.
“Sundog provides theatrical and educational programs throughout Staten Island. Contributions and events such as our yearly fundraiser allow us to be able to provide these at reduced rates so more adults and children can experience the arts,” states Susan Fenley, Sundog’s executive director.
“People–especially children–are transformed for the better by participating in theatre, dance, music, and visual arts. And the South Shore Rotary is helping us continue to do that.”
“South Shore Rotary is thrilled to be honored by Sundog Theatre. Susan and the entire crew at Sundog do a fantastic job of not only entertaining Staten Islanders but more importantly, educating our young people,” said Rotary Director Tom Tyburczy.
“This is something that is essential since arts programs have been pulled back and defunded over the years. South Shore Rotary knows the importance of the arts and its value to the Staten Island community. Our annual social Rotary show is a hit and it also helps raise money for needy people on Staten Island.”
The Sundog Soiree will feature food, music, entertainment and fun. Masks are optional. Tickets are $80. For information contact Sundog Theatre at 718-816-5453.
