Wellington Rape Crisis provides free support and counseling for survivors of rape and sexual abuse, their families, friends and whanau. While they are thrilled at the results of recent fundraising, Wellington Rape Crisis is still not fully or sustainably funded and continues to rely on community donations and support in a difficult funding environment.

Though they have met their current budget shortfall thanks to a huge community response they are always in need of funds and support.

STAND UP For Wellington Rape Crisis is a comedic variety fundraiser featuring local comedians, improvisors, and musicians in an event to celebrate the work of Wellington Rape Crisis and to raise funds and awareness.

The generous performers who are giving their time and talent to this great cause include: Jim Stanton, Roni Saul, TJ McDonald, James Nokise, Jerome Chandrahasen, The Improv Divas, Wellington Sea Shanty Society, and Les Foiles de L’amour, Wellington's own Can-Can troupe!

“We have been overwhelmed by the community support in response to our recent funding crisis and are thrilled about STAND UP for Wellington Rape Crisis is being put on by volunteers to fundraise further for us and celebrate our 35th birthday.” - Natalie Gousmett, Agency Manager, Wellington Rape Crisis

STAND UP and join us at San Francisco Bathhouse for a fantastic cause - tickets are $20 from www.eventfinder.co.nz and the proceeds are going directly to Wellington Rape Crisis.

Our sincere thanks to sponsors Iko Iko, Slow Boat Records, The Body Shop Cuba St, Arty Bees, The Big Picture, Eventfinder, Brianne Kerr Publicity, San Francisco Bathhouse, and Cuba Creative.

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle.

So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
