The cast of Drama Dock’s recent production, Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple-Female Version,” initiated a fundraiser on behalf of Vashon DOVE Project.

Audience members were given an opportunity to contribute to DOVE at the conclusion of each of the seven performances of “The Odd Couple,” held in February at Vashon Center for the Arts. Vashon audiences gave generously, and Drama Dock’s cast and crew raised $1,800 in support of DOVE, the island’s domestic violence organization.

In their letter accompanying the check to DOVE, the board of directors of Drama Dock wrote, “We heartily support DOVE’s goal to build a community in which abuse is eliminated and personal empowerment is promoted through prevention, education and training.” Learn more about Vashon DOVE Project at vashondoveproject.org.

Drama Dock is also an island non-profit, creating and inspiring community theater audiences and performers since 1976. For more information, visit dramadock.org.
