Labor of Love

Aug. 27

For close to four decades, Toby Orenstein has been organizing Labor of Love, an AIDS benefit show. She plans to use the same variety show formula to raise money for flood victims at Howard Community College’s Smith Theater, Campus Dr, Columbia.

Although ticket prices and performers have not yet been announced, Orenstein says, the event will begin at 7 p.m.

The evening will likely include singing, dancing, acting and instrumental music with some commentary in between, according to Orenstein, who adds that she expects performers from New York City to attend.

“We might have a wine and cheese party to raise extra money,” she says.

Call 410-730-8311 for more information.
