Taking It On!
I don’t like to feel helpless in the face of all the horrors that of been done because we as a culture keep ignoring the issue of mental health and I wanted to help in some way, to be proactive.-Terri New

On all counts of the different facets of it.

THE DON'S SPEAKEASY MURDER MYSTERY DINNER
FUNDRAISER for The West Yavapai Guidance Clinic FoundationThis very successful event was Produced and Directed by Terri New. (All videos, photography and graphics for the production were created by Terri New)
"I have to say this project was a labor of love for me. I had been in their first fundraising murder mystery with my husband the year before. I thought it was wonderful, but I thought ‘Wow we could really kick this up a notch.’ So I took it on as a production project. A couple of months into it the director of the show couldn’t do it, so I ended up taking on that role as well.
We also had Silent and Live
Auctions to add to the bank!...And an opening scene “Big
Spender” to kick off the silent auction with a flash mob with all of
the cast and our volunteers with dance moves and singing. We had a
terrific choreographer Alexa Hannah-Niekamp. Check
out our credits video to see all these stellar folks who took part!
