Help Us Raise $25,000 for our 25th Anniversary!
At CSz Richmond, we are inspired and driven by the many ways in which we bring laughter into so many lives. From our shows like ComedySportz and our After Hours series, to our work in programs and partnerships that focus on diversity, childhood cancer, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, blind and vision impaired communities, Autism and more, we strive to promote and expand our mission to enrich lives and foster lasting relationships within our community through improv.
As we head into into our 25th year as Richmond's longest running improv theater and organization, we are excited about all of the growth and possibilities that lie ahead. 2020 has been such a difficult year for everyone in so many ways, and our theater is no exception. With your help, we can continue to expand all of the GOOD STUFF that we do, and bring the benefits of laughter into so many more lives. Let's embrace the basic improv concept of "Yes, AND!" as we move forward TOGETHER to create even more opportunities for our community.
In our camps, school leagues and adult classes, we build self confidence, teamwork, and acceptance. Your donation in this campaign can help us build and expand on the ways in which we bring these benefits to those who need it most, and help ensure that we'll continue doing so for years to come. Please click on the donate button to help us reach this goal, with our sincere gratitude for helping us get to year 25 and beyond!
A Message from the Yes Balloon Executive Director
Twenty-five years has flown by! From our first year in a cramped bar basement and a movie theater/restaurant all the way to this past decade in our current theater location, CSz Richmond has seen a million laughs and tremendous growth. Celebrating a silver anniversary is a huge milestone for any business, especially if that business is an improv comedy theater and training center.
While it is exciting to look back at everything we’ve accomplished and all of the wonderful people who have made our CSz Richmond family what it is today, it is even more exciting to look forward into the NEXT twenty-five years. We’re set to emerge from the unparalleled challenges of 2020 with more energy than ever before. Our non-profit organization is poised for
significant growth, building on efforts and programs that lift up our community through improv and laughter. We’ve only just begun to explore all of the good that improv can bring beyond the stage. The energy that drives all of us behind the scenes is set to launch us forward with new and expanded programs, camps, classes and shows.
On behalf of everyone at CSz Richmond, including our ComedySportz leagues, our training center instructors and staff, and the Yes Ballon Board of Directors, I’d like to express our tremendous gratitude for helping us to reach this milestone. Join us in our journey forward. Donate any amount to our 25 to 25 campaign, grab a ticket to any of our virtual shows, and be ready to rush the doors of the theater once we are all finally able to once again share that space! In true improv form, we can not wait to move forward TOGETHER!
Peace & laughter -
Dave Gau, Executive Director
