My Name Is...
On March 7, while the International Women’s Day festivities were taking place, another event benefiting SAVE was being held in Monterey. A play called My Name Is...at the Pink Flamingo Theater.
As playwright David Norum states, this play is “a story of a woman’s
perseverance and the
indomitable human spirit in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, as told by 16 women involved in the lives of the family, the violence and trial." David was the detective and the courageous woman whose story was being told is
SAVE's Housing First Coordinator, Annie Olea.
The dress rehearsal of the play was a fundraiser for SAVE, raising $600! We are grateful to Pink Flamingo Theater owner Chris Caffrey and to David for putting the event together. And thanks to Annie for sharing her story.
