No flowers, no wine, no chocolates...
Mint has decided to take a break from Mint’s Annual Spring Benefit routine. Having an elegant party was great fun, and it always felt like a success—but too much of your generous support went into making a nice party and not enough into helping the Mint. Instead, we promise to put all of your contributions towards actor salaries—with not one penny spent on flowers, wine or chocolate. Because we all want great plays even more than we want a great party.
Maybe next year we’ll all get dressed up and have a wonderful time, while raising lots of money for the Mint. But this year, I’m asking you to join us again in Celebrating the talent, industry and good taste of Mint’s wonderful actors by helping us to pay their salaries (which increased by about 10% this year).
Thank you for Celebrating with us and thank you for your support!
