Friday March 18th, Playwrights Project will be represented alongside thirteen other local nonprofit organizations in the "Betty Mabee Hat Parade" sponsored by the Gold Diggers. The Gold Diggers support the development and continuation of programs that serve the needs of our local community, including but not limited to children, the elderly, crime victims, and more. The Gold Diggers raise funds for emerging non-profits like ours in the San Diego County area; and since 1994, $780,000 has been distributed. 

The theme of this year's hat parade is "Fairy Tales Can Come True" and Playwrights Project would greatly appreciate your support! Our hat could potentially win from $500 to $2500 to supplement our programs such as Write On! and Plays by Young Writers

The luncheon will be at the San Diego Marriott in La Jolla on March 18th If you would like to attend this festive event, tickets are $100 and can be purchased by calling Jackie Bailey at 619-670-3643. If you are unable to attend and wish to show your support, absentee ballots are available for $25. 
Submit your play to the 2016 California Young Playwrights Contest!
