The arts have a unique ability to stir up understanding and empathy as we witness someone else's story. We believe it is our responsibility to tell stories that challenge and inspire.
Both the creative team and the audience are given the opportunity learn more from professionals working in the highlighted area of concern to ensure we are responding in a way that is informed.
For each show, a unique partner organization is present at all performances, allowing us to learn about and then support their work with our time, talent, and resources
Women's heart health is an issue that isn't talked about enough. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women, and women's heart attack and stroke symptoms are often unique and different from the typical chest pain that is portrayed in the media. Top of the World Cabaret is focused on raising awareness around these symptoms, and the importance of women's heart health.
This event is dedicated to all women's heart health survivors and those who have lost their lives due to a heart event, specifically Becky Jaeger who was an avid supporter of The Art of Reconciliation and mother of our beloved performer, Paige Jaeger. All proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women campaign.
Tickets: $25 suggested donation
