If you are one of my Portland readers, please consider helping out the non-profit Tears of Joy Theatre company this evening. All you have to do is have dinner at the Qdoba restaurant downtown (at 5th and Taylor) between 4 and 9 pm, and hand them a copy of this flyer. A portion of the proceeds from your order will go to Tears of Joy.

If you aren’t familiar with Tears of Joy Theatre, they are a nationally recognized puppetry company that is dedicated to producing quality performances for children. They also (through their Higher Stages program) use the arts as a means to help at-risk youth in NE Portland schools.

This is Tears of Joy’s 35th anniversary season, and they are hoping to mark the occasion by creating a cash reserve for the company. Please consider coming downtown for some Mexican food. And don’t forget the flyer!

Thanks much.
