5th Annual Birthday Party and AFSP Fundraiser
Celebrate 5 years with Sky High!
Date: September 15, 2018 @ 6pm
Performances, Prizes, Friends, and Fun!
It’s hard to believe that 5 years has already come and gone! I am very excited to invite you to our 5-year celebration, showcase, and charity raffle. Sky High Studios officially opened on August 5, 2013. Between then and now so many wonderful people have come through our doors gaining not only physical strength and new skill, but a new sense of confidence, self-discovery, freedom, and community. Having the pleasure of watching the growth of so many people has been one of the most rewarding parts of opening this business. Thank you all to everyone who has been a part of Sky HIgh Studios in the last five years, and here’s to five more!
Please read below on how to participate in our celebration as a performer or charity raffle contributor.
We have had many requests from people who would like to perform in our showcase this year, and we are excited to have as many people as possible perform. Because of the volume of requests, we are asking anyone interested to click on the button below to fill out the performer submission form. Performance priority will be given to groups and class based performances, and then will be given to individuals, so we can accommodate as many people in the showcase as possible. While we would love to have everyone, the party can only last so long. Thank you so much for wanting to be a part of our celebration! Performances will be announced below, and in our blog post updates and we select participants.
2018 Raffle Prize Contributors
The AFSP has been a huge part of our celebration for the last 2 years, and in that time we have raised approximately $3000, and last year our donation sent them over the $100,000 mark for the very first time. Suicide, depression, anxiety, and self-harm affect more people than we know, and have personally affected so many people in the studio. Supporting this cause and giving back to our community is a huge part of Sky High Studios. The funds are donated to the AFSP in the name of Chanan Moffit, one of our instructors who participates in the Out of Darkness walk every year to support the Massachusetts Chapter of this amazing organization. If you would like to learn more about AFSP, and contribute a raffle prize to our fundraiser please use the links below.
Project Semi-colon is an movement started by Amy Bleuel who, after struggling with her own mental illness, began collecting stories of those who have survived, and published a book using their stories to inspire others to persevere. Their mission is “to help reduce the incidents of suicide in the world through connected community and greater access to information and resources. We believe that suicide prevention is the collective responsibility of each and every person on the planet.”
Every year we honor those who have struggled with mental illness, and suffered through anxiety, depression, self-harm, addiction, and suicidal thoughts. Some of these people have survived, and others have not. The names submitted to use are written on semicolon sheets and put in the window of our main lobby. If you would like to have someone honored at our celebration (whether you are present at the event or not) please use the box to the submit their name.
A semicolon is used when the author could’ve ended the sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.
Use the box below to enter the name of someone you would like to us to honor. If you would like them to be anonymous, simply write “Anonymous” in the box and we will use that on the card.
