MADCAPS San Diego Announces 56th Annual Benefit Show March 10-12, 2016
January 20, 2016 (San Diego, CA) Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS) will celebrate 56 years of community service with its annual benefit show Thursday, March 10th through Saturday, March 12th, 2016 at Brown Chapel on the campus of Point Loma Nazarene University. The theme for the 56th anniversary show is “MADCAPS, IN HARMONY WITH SAN DIEGO” and will feature several different styles of dance. Tickets for this year’s show go on sale February 9, 2016 with prices ranging between $5 and $25. Tickets can be purchased at
"We are particularly excited about this year’s theme “MADCAPS, In Harmony with San Diego”, says Kate McKenzie, 2016 Benefit Communications Chair. “It focuses on our local community, where our boots are on the ground making a difference. An exciting new feature of our show is spotlight appearances by representatives of the philanthropies we support.  This year, we are very pleased to welcome to the stage San Diego Habitat for Humanity, St. Vincent de Paul, and San Diego Therapeutic Recreational Services to say a few words to our patrons. In addition, we are supporting an outreach to the homeless led by Point Loma Nazarene University/San Diego First Church by collecting items for homeless kits. Patrons are asked to bring an item such as new tube socks and small shampoos, which will be distributed to those in need. All of this would not be possible without the support of sponsors from our community. And so we sincerely thank our Erin & Jim Schabarum, Brick Youth Group of Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church, and the MADCAPSs Class of 2016.
This annual musical extravaganza has become MADCAPS signature fundraising event to provide financial support to dozens of local charities. The underwriting of major production costs, proceeds from ticket and advertising sales, and the donated time and expertise of the girls, their families and friends make it possible to give to these community organizations. MADCAPS is very excited to return to the campus of Point Loma Nazarene University. The additional capacity and comfort of the theater at Brown Chapel, state of the art audio and visual technology, and ease and accessibility of parking will again make this year's show a fantastic experience for all who attend.
