NEW GALLERY: V-Day Benefit Sunday Supper & One Billion Rising Bay Area!


On Sunday, June 24th, we held a special V-Day fundraiser which included a benefit performance of Eve's newest play Emotional Creature at Berkeley Rep, followed by Sunday Supper at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza with members of the cast, Eve, and Director Jo Bonney, and ending with an exciting outdoor community ritual "One Billion Rising Bay Area", the launch of ONE BILLION RISING in Berkeley featuring dance, music, drumming, and more at the Civic Center Park in Berkeley.

This event was hosted by an incredible group of leaders from the Bay Area and around the country, including: Isabel Allende, Carole Black, Jo Bonney, Lisa Brown and Daniel Handler, Susie Tompkins Buell, Jennifer Buffett, Beth Dozoretz, Eve Ensler, Jodie, Evans, Jane Fonda, Anna and Rob McKay, Arlie and Adam Hochschild, Amanda Jones, Barb Jones, Beth Karpfinger, Frannie Kieschnick, Regina Kulik Scully, Gina Maya, Katherine McFate, Susie Medak, Pat Mitchell, Belinda Munoz, Julie Parish, Amy Rao, Lisa Schejola Akin, Emily Scott Pottruck, Dr. Jane Shaw, Andrea Dew Steele, Erin Strain, Susan Celia Swan, Darian Swig, Roselyne Swig, Deb Wetherby, and Marsha Williams.

It was a magnificent afternoon of theater, friends, and activism, with an unstoppable energy full of love and emotion. And now we are so pleased to share with you our newest online gallery from the event, featuring V-Day staff and supporters from around the Bay Area, as the Emotional Creature creative team, well as V-Day Board members Carole Black, Rosario Dawson, Jane Fonda, Katherine McFate, Pat Mitchell, Amy Rao, Lisa Schejola Akin, Emily Scott Pottruck, and Susan Celia Swan.
