Event beneficiary She ROCKS, Inc. raises funds for ovarian cancer research and provides knowledge and local support to those affected by all types of cancer. The organization began in Wilmington and has expanded to include She ROCKS The Triad, serving Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem. Since its inception, She ROCKS has raised more than $1 million. The organization gives 75 percent of the funds to UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to fund ovarian cancer research, and 25 percent to NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center to purchase support items such as new chemo chairs for the infusion suite, gas cards, wigs and numerous other comfort and care items.

“On Broadway continues our support of She ROCKS and our 235-year tradition of entertaining the community,” says Susan Habas, executive director of Thalian Association Community Theatre. “Thanks to the wonderful response by the community to the Divine Divas events over the past several years, we have been able to donate $34,227.65 to She ROCKS. We anticipate a great crowd and a fabulous time and hope you’ll join us!”
