Comedy for a good cause

July 24, 2018

Come one, come all: A night of “sit down comedy” featuring renowned journalist Glenda Umaña and blogger Esther Lev, held at the Eugene O’Neill Theater at the Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center in Barrio Dent, San Pedro, just east of San José.

Umaña and Lev will share a mix of humorous and heartfelt reflections on women’s lives and challenges; each ticket includes a cocktail and participation in a raffle. Ticket sales will benefit Soy Niña, a nonprofit organization working to empower girls in low-income communities. Read our story about Soy Niña here.

Tickets are 12,000 colones (approximately $24); the event starts at 7:30 pm. Visit the event website here. To learn more about the organization or make a donation to Soy Niña that is tax-deductible in the United States, visit Soy Niña’s Amigos of Costa Rica page here.
