As if July were not exciting enough, Cirque du Soleil comes to town next week with the Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour. I will admit that I have had my tickets for over a year (to say I LOVE all things Cirque would be a drastic understatement), but if you did not think to plan quite so far in advance, you can still get tickets AND contribute to a great cause. Local organization Martha’s Table, which helps provide services to feed, clothe, and educate over a thousand people a day, has tickets available for the performance on Sunday, July 15th that includes entry into a pre-show reception at the Dewar’s Clubhouse in the Verizon Center. All proceeds for ticket sales through Martha’s Table (tickets start at just $100), will go back to the organization, and the pre-show reception will wow attendees with live performances, circus-themed artists, music by Christylez, food, drinks, and (if I can keep my sister out of it long enough to give other people a chance) a photobooth.
A limited amount of tickets are still available here, so don’t miss out!Â The reception at the Dewar’s Clubhouse is from 2-4pm, immediately followed by a performance of Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson Immortal in the Verizon Center.
