San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
Ann marie Houghtailing, San Diego author and founder of the Millionaire Girls’ Movement, is partnering with Kids’ Turn San Diego to debut her latest one-woman show, Raising Humans, for a one-night limited engagement in San Diego. 100% of the show proceeds of the June 21 performance are being donated to Kids’ Turn San Diego to help children who need support during stressful times of family separation.
Kids' Turn San Diego offers programs to help the whole family through separation, divorce and military transitions. It is the only program in San Diego County that takes a whole family approach, working with children and both of their parents.
“In San Diego County, almost 200,000 children a year experience their parents’ divorce and an additional 60,000 children are affected by military deployments and/or transitions,” said Cindy Grossman, Executive Director of Kids’ Turn San Diego. “Every ticket sold and every dollar spent at this event ensures that children and families will have access to our programs, regardless of their ability to pay.”
Raising Humans examines the personal and social implications of raising children in the modern world. Houghtailing presents a hysterical and heartbreaking personal account of struggling to parent in a culture obsessed with raising trilingual, athletic, scientific, artistic geniuses ready to take on the new economy. Raising Humans humorously and lovingly wrestles with the greatest social imprint people leave upon the world - our children.
Raising Humans is Houghtailing’s second one-woman performance. In 2012, she toured her first show, Renegade Princess, across the United States, and performed it in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The show received rave reviews from Forbes, Times Square Chronicles, and Woman Around Town.
“This partnership was born out of my own desire to use my work to make some difference in the world,” said Houghtailing. “I love the idea of using theater to bring people together to share an evening of entertainment that will also do some good in the world. We all struggle to make an impact; this is a really easy way for people to make a difference, just by attending a show and having a good time.”
Houghtailing, who is an international speaker and author of How I Created a Dollar out of Thin Air (The Houghtailing Group, May 2013, $19.99), works as a sales and business development coach for large corporations and entrepreneurs. She is also the founder of the Millionaire Girls’ Movement, which was profiled recently in a story on the Yahoo! Finance homepage.
Raising Humans takes place June 21, 2014, at 7 pm, at the Qualcomm Auditorium. Ticket prices range from $25 general admission to $35 VIP backstage pass includes a meet-and-greet reception with Houghtailing and reserved seating before the show.
