Lesson Before Dyin

The Kiwanis No. 1 Foundation (in Detroit) invites you to join them for an afternoon out to benefit the Detroit College Promise with a theatre fundraiser. The play, based up on a prize winning novel, is called A Lesson Before Dying, and will be shown at the Detroit Repertory Theatre (13103 Woodrow Wilson) on Sunday, February 6 at 2:00 p.m. There will also be a reception at 1:00 pm.  The cost of a ticket is $20 with all proceeds benefiting the Detroit College Promise. Gold and Silver Sponsorship levels are available for $100 and $50, and provide reserved seating and donor recognition.

All proceeds are used to provide scholarships to Detroit Public School students to attend a Michigan public college or university.  We currently have 4,000 seniors who have registered for our program - your support means a lot to them, and to younger students who are motivated to stay in school by the prospect of a scholarship when they graduate.

To purchase tickets, contact the Detroit College Promise at (248) 646-3269. A brief synopsis of the play, or to get directions to the Detroit Repertory Theatre, click here.
