Gulfshore Playhouse to Donate Funds to Flint, Michigan during Performances of “An Enemy of the People”
Gulfshore Playhouse (www.GulfshorePlayhouse.org), Southwest Florida’s premier professional theatre, is pleased to announce that during its production of An Enemy of the People will partner with Safe Water. Safe Home. (www.FlintKids.org) to donate the proceeds from every bottle of water purchased. The goal is to contribute the financial equivalent of 5,000 bottles of water by the end of the show’s run to support the children of Flint, Michigan.
“Because An Enemy of the People, a story about the contamination of a town’s drinking water that was written in 1882, so closely imitates the devastating situation unfolding in Flint, Michigan – and right here in the Gulf of Mexico – we felt it necessary to help. By giving through www.flintkids.org we will be able to support the long-term health and development needs of Flint’s children,” said Kristen Coury, Founder and Artistic Director of Gulfshore Playhouse.
