Crime fighting wins a standing ovation this year
This year's "CrimeStoppers Night At The Theatre" event was the organization's most successful to date. We sold out the main-stage theatre at Playhouse On The Square for a showing of the legendary musical
Kiss Me Kate.
CrimeStoppers of Memphis and Shelby County sponsors a show each year at Playhouse. We get the house for one night (347 seats) and sell tickets as a fund-raiser. Sponsors - this year they included Valero, Georgia Pacific and Dillard Door and Security - help us defer the costs of a great dinner and show.
And many supporters buy tickets so that a police officer and guest can attend. Some of these special guests have never seen live theater before. The event helps two nonprofits, and is a great boost to Memphis's men and women in blue.
Next May we will be a sponsor of Memphis, The Musical. Tickets aren't available yet, but it is possible to make a donation now to send a police officer and guest: http://www.crimestopmem.org (scroll down).
