Cocktails for a Cause

November 27, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join VLA’s Associate Board on Giving Tuesday for the 5th Annual Cocktails for a Cause event!

Enjoy a drink on us, network, and learn about VLA’s work providing legal services to New York artists and arts organizations in need, with the help of its volunteer attorneys.

A $35 ticket provides support for Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and a cocktail for you! This will help VLA continue to provide vital legal services and focused education programs to thousands of low-income artists in need of assistance, information, and guidance.

Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and focuses on giving back to the community through contributions to charitable organizations.

VLA is excited to have Jacqueline Christy speak at this year’s Giving Tuesday event! Her organization Access Theater provides an affordable venue for emerging artists and nonprofit organizations to showcase their work. VLA worked closely with Jacqueline and Access Theater for 7 years, during which time she was afforded dedicated legal services at a critical juncture for the organization.

Jacqueline is a writer, producer, and director, having worked on many notable plays and films, including the world premiere of The Killing Act, starring Peter Dinklage, written and directed by Tom McCarthy (Spotlight); the world premiere of Aasif Mandvi’s one-man show Sakina’s Restaurant; and the world premiere of Stephen Belber’s Tape.

VLA has also assisted Jacqueline with her current independent film Magic Hour starring actress Miriam Shor. The film has been featured in the Hollywood Reporter and Broadway World.

Join us next Tuesday at Cocktails for a Cause to hear more about Jacqueline’s background and experience with VLA!
