Got benefits?

Four fabulous fundraisers to tell you about, folks:

April 24 RTG Dance will throw their second Goose! Show benefit; don’t ask me what the name means but it sure sounds like a great time. A good mix of bang for your entertainment buck and old-fashioned party time awaits with performances by Cameron Esposito, Esteban Cruz, Jennifer Thompson, Annie Rudnik, Renata Sheppard, Oyku Cook, The Space Movement Project, Ayako Kato, JT Newman, RHOMBUS, and more (!) while 25 bones buys the two loveliest words in the English language: Open bar. Tickets are available here—the event officially runs from 7-9pm at Mary’s Attic in Andersonville. RTG is headed to Brooklyn Arts Exchange in June, so do those lovelies a favor by spending what you would already drop (probably less) to go out on a Friday night. You could use the karma.

Ack! But April 24 is also the date of Hedwignites, Hedwig Dances’ annual benefit. It’s a little spendier but certainly well worth it. Kickoff is at 6pm at Primitive and the party goes long and strong with multiple performances, silent auction and raffle action, passed hors d’oeuvres and, natch, adult beverages. Pick up a ticket or two here.

May 3 is Cerqua Rivera‘s shindig, the Cuban-themed “Havana Nights” soirée at sexy Chaise Lounge from 6-9pm, benefitting Latin Fire III. Also offering some eat & drink action, it’s $25 and a lovely night out. RSVP by telephone (773) 847-0305 or by email at corrie (at) cerquarivera (dot) org.

Finally, Dim Sum Dance (who were terrific Sunday in Feed the Guest at the Epiphany Dance Experiment) is getting its party on at Silverspace May 9 from 7:30-10pm. Wine, chow and performances by DSD as well as the hit parade of Asimina Chremos (also awesome Sunday), Ayako Kato, Adam Rose, Rachel Thorne Germond and Jessica Wright raise funds for the company’s fall season (which most certainly qualifies as a good cause). RSVP to julie (at) dimsumdance (dot) org to reserve a spot and bring fifteen bargainy smackers with you to the door.
