Join the Women’s Fund of Door County on March 3 & 4 for their spectacular annual event, Tales of Our Lives – A Story Slam: Empowerment Through Performance. A story slam is more than just storytelling, it’s a rare glimpse into the storytellers’ lives and how they have been transformed into the people they have become. These engaging stories range from funny to sad, from heartwarming to heart wrenching, each offering a unique and authentic gift from the storyteller as they share a piece of themselves with their audience.
This year’s storytellers will be Caitlin Oleson, Cassie Potter Hitzman, Gay Pustaver, Isaiah Spetz, Laurel Brooks, Ruby James, Sally Slattery and Virge Temme, with musical interludes once again by Dorothy Scott and Jess Holland.
Tales of Our Lives will be held at the Door County Fire Company in downtown Sturgeon Bay. Social hour starts at 6 pm and the stories begin at 7 pm. Complimentary local baked goods and Door County Coffee will be served. A cash bar will be available, including drink specials also benefitting the fund. Both men and women are encouraged to attend.
Tickets are on sale by calling the Door County Community Foundation at 920.746.1786 or by downloading a reservation form at WomensFundDoorCounty.org. Advance tickets are $15. Tickets at the door are $20, as space is available. Based on last year’s attendance, a sellout crowd is expected.
