The theme for this year’s show is “Time Travel,” which takes the audience back in time and features a tribute to music from throughout the decades including, 1920s, 1940s, 1960s, 1980s, and 1990s. Tickets for this year’s show are on sale at sdmadcaps.org.
MADCAPS mission is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service and support of philanthropic organizations. This show is a celebration of the girls’ hard work and dedication to serving the community.
“Our annual benefit show is an opportunity for our members to produce a fun and entertaining show while raising much needed funds for local nonprofits,” said Nancy Kaase, MADCAPS president. “It’s a great way to engage our junior members to help make a financial contribution to the nonprofits that they have volunteered with.”
This annual musical extravaganza has become MADCAPS signature fundraising event to provide financial support to dozens of local charities. The underwriting of major production costs, proceeds from ticket and advertising sales, and the donated time and expertise of the girls, their families and friends, make it possible to give to these local San Diego nonprofits.
None of this would be possible without the generous support of this year’s sponsors, which include The Sinnott Family, Brick Youth Group, Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern, Ghio Panissidi & Associates, Michael Panissidi, and Brigantine Family of Restaurants.
MADCAPS formed in 1960 when a group of 27 mothers came together with the common goal of creating a philanthropic organization alongside their daughters. These women voted to form a unique organization and on September 17th of that year, MADCAPS made its debut at a tea for 50 charter members and their daughters.
The organization is comprised of more than 200 mothers and their daughters in seventh to 12th grade who reside in the neighborhoods of Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Hills and Hillcrest. In addition to the more than 8,000 hours of community service volunteered by the girls each year, MADCAPS presents an annual high-energy music and dance benefit show to raise additional funds for these local charities.
Since its inception, MADCAPS has distributed more than $1.16 million to local charities and completed thousands of hours of direct service. Organizations that have benefited from MADCAPS philanthropy include Father Joe’s Villages, YMCA Becky’s House, UCSD Bannister Family House, Rady Children’s Hospital, Autism Tree Project Foundation, Therapeutic Recreation Services, San Diego Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, and San Diego River Park Foundation. MADCAPS also volunteer their time at the yearly Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk.
