Every day is potentially history-making. Likewise, as the adage goes, “when two or more are gathered” for a constructive sense and purpose, the potential for a powerful and positive impact grows exponentially.
E-Period, LLC, the creative team behind the Hollalujah series, provides this sense with their family-themed series. Complete with comedy (including improv), poetry, spoken-word, and music, the recurring series provides a positive outlet bringing multiple segments of the community together.
Their upcoming performance on Friday, February 19, 2016, embodies this sense and sentiment. Taking place at the Porter Sanford Center for the Performing Arts (the doors open at 7pm, and the show starts at 8pm), it features more than high-quality and engaging performances by Poet Glenwood, Comedian Fattman, Comedian Zoo Man, and the Black Top Improv Group. They are adding a service component that clearly, with the support of its patrons and others, can help make a solid impact in the lives of youth and adults.
“We’re pleased to use this day as part of our #HollaForward campaign”, notes Christopher “Cocktails” Cornell, the director of E-Period, LLC in his presentation on Saturday, January 23, 2016. “In teaming up with two community organizations, The LEAD Foundation and Show Me Shoes Foundation, we are excited about how we can support our young people, as well as others in need”.
On the day of the performance, patrons are asked to bring business attire (to the performance) for both men and women, including suits, dress-shirts, slacks, ties, dresses, skirts, and other related attire, including traditional “after-7” themed clothing. Once collected, both organizations in turn are providing outreach opportunities to those in need of such clothing.
Through their #PromProject6, Show Me Shoes Foundation, Inc. provides assistance for women in need for prom and overall business related attire. Likewise, The LEAD Foundation (through the donations provided) allows for support for young men, women, and adults who are in need of business and related clothing.
“We are appreciative of the collaborative efforts of both E-Period, LLC and the LEAD Foundation”, adds Anneka Jenkins in our discussion on Saturday, January 23, 2016. Likewise, Michael Woodward, the Executive Director of the LEAD Foundation concludes, “In working together, we are able to help as many as possible”.
