The Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc. Board is excited and honored to announce that award-winning triple-threat Valarie Pettiford has joined the cast and will star in this year’s fundraiser production of “Life in the Cancer Lane” by the late Barbra Watson-Riley.

“I am beyond thrilled to be working with Valarie again,” said Carla Banks Waddles, who will be directing the play along with Crystal Houston.  Waddles worked with Pettiford as a writer on the UPN sitcom “Half & Half.”   “She brings so much talent and elegance to everything she does.  She dances, she sings, she’s a powerhouse. This audience is in for a real treat!”

The matinee and evening performances will take place at The Herberger Theater Center-Stage West on October 18, 2014 (2:00 pm and 7:30 pm). The Herberger Theater Center is a Diamond sponsor of the production and is joined by a host of corporate and individual sponsors, including our Platinum Sponsors: the Watson Family and Leslie M. Gray.

Ticket sales are already moving rapidly and both performances are expected to sell out quickly, as they did last year. Click here to purchase “Life in the Cancer Lane” tickets today or to become a sponsor (all packages include tickets).
