A moving message from Brendon Riley about Barbra, Blayre & Life in the Cancer Lane

20 Sep

brendon_blayre_wellsfargo2014 Dear Friends and Family,

As we approach the anniversary of Barbra’s transition to the next chapter in her story, Blayre and I continue to move forward with the love and support of our family and friends.  We couldn’t be more grateful for those who have surrounded us with their continued presence in our lives.  Though life has brought change for Blayre and me, certain things have not changed: our love for each other and for Barbra, our love of the Lord – who is the source of our strength, and our abiding passion to help others.

We’ve decided to celebrate, rather than memorialize, Barbra in the coming few weeks.  Much of that, Blayre and I will do privately.  However, we would love for you to join us as the Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc. will celebrate Barbra’s memory during Breast Cancer Awareness Month by restaging Barbra’s play, Life In The Cancer Lane, in two shows on Saturday, October 18th at The Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe Phoenix, AZ 85004. We are thrilled that this year’s performance will feature Hollywood star of stage and screen, Valarie Pettiford.

Barbra was able to see her creation brought to life just weeks before her journey with us ended, and we are tremendously excited to present the play to the public again a year later.  All funds raised that evening will go to the 501(c)(3) organization that Barbra began, The Pinkwellchick Foundation.  This foundation focuses on promoting breast cancer awareness, prevention, and supporting survivors and families, as well as heart health among women.

Through the generosity of our sponsors and partners, as well as the determination of a small band of Barbra’s close friends, we have an opportunity to show the play in the beautiful Herberger Theater Center.  I’m honored and humbled by the grace demonstrated by our friends at the Herberger and look forward to sharing this special gift in a special venue.

brendon_blayre_fatheroftheyear2014Please join us and take part in this special occasion.  Seats are still available for both shows.  You may find details and purchase tickets with the links below. Please share this information with your networks.

See you on October 18th!

Brendon

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).
