Every life has challenges. The best way to overcome them is to find the treasure in the wreckage, thereby giving the challenges purpose. A 2nd Act’s live, curated storytelling performance, S.T.A.R.S: Survivors Tell A Real Story, does just that. It features eight Valley women who have faced a terrifying diagnosis and are using their gifts of life and experience to give back to the greater good in their 2nd Acts. The event will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 24, at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts (7380 E 2nd St., Scottsdale).
Professionally coached and directed by a 30-year theater veteran, each story of the eight woman cast redefines courage and human potential and provides inspiration for the entire audience. The performance will be emceed by a celebrity to be announced at a later date, and is underwritten by Scottsdale Medical Imaging, Ltd.
Funds raised by the S.T.A.R.S. performance support the programs of A 2nd Act, including workshops and micro grants. The grants provide seed money for local women survivors ready to launch or grow their 2nd Acts, allowing them to follow their dreams, give back to the world and give purpose to their cancer journeys. All money raised stays in the Valley of the Sun.
