Will Rogers’ Follies will be coming to the Downey Civic Theatre for a one-day fundraiser to raise money for the Sertoma Club of Downey.

The club is a non-profit organization supporting hearing/speech impaired children and adults.

The fundraising performance will be on Oct. 17 and will begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $32 and the public is invited to attend.

The theatre gives the opportunity to clubs to hold fundraising events when the theatre has a play going on.

Vice President of the Sertoma Club, Pat McCool, said, “We found out about the fundraising events available to us and we got a block of tickets to sell.”

“The ticket response has been good, we only have a few tickets left,” McCool said.

The money raised from the event will go toward hearing tests, fantasy baseball during the summer for the hard of hearing and deaf, and also to the American Heritage program, which is a essay contest for elementary school children.
