The Off Center Players in cooperation with the Cranbrook Community Theatre presented “Calendar Girls” in May of this year.
The stage play chronicles the real-life story of a Women’s Institute chapter’s fundraising efforts to support a local hospital in England while a loved one goes through cancer treatment.
The 12 sold out performances in Cranbrook and Kimberley, directed by Terry Miller with Calendar Girls Killeen Delorme, Susan Hanson, Joanne Wilkinson, Michelle McCue, Nola Doiron, Michelle Lemay, Sioban Staplin, Tylene Turner, Brigitte Franyo, Jennifer Inglis, Barry Borgstrom, Thom McCaughey, Jerrod Bondy, Patrici Baranowski and Andy Rogers was a brilliant success.
The stage play also took on a charitable side with 10 per cent of ticket sales and 100 per cent of cast calendar profits dedicated to EKFH for cancer care.
Last week Liz Adler, Past President of The Off Center Players and Terry Miller, Calendar Girls Director presented EKFH with a gift of $1,570 for the regional hospital’s oncology unit. The donation also took on an extra special meaning as the two presented the gift in memory of Jenna Elizabeth Homeniuk of Kimberley.
