This concert will benefit 23-year-old Victor Rodriguez and his family. In June 2011, Sacramento newlyweds Victor and Crystal Rodriguez went parasailing on the last day of their honeymoon in the Bahamas. At a height of approximately 200 feet their harness snapped, and they fell into the ocean. Crystal was killed, and Victor suffered severe injuries. Neither of them had health or life insurance.
Tickets are $99 (plus a $4 ticketing fee) and includes admission to the post-show reception in The Playhouse’s VIP Lounge. All tickets are general admission. All of the proceeds including the $4 per ticket fee will go toward Victor’s medical and recovery expenses.
Tickets for the benefit can be purchased by calling (626) 356-7529, by visiting www.PasadenaPlayhouse.org or in person at The Playhouse Box Office, located at 39 S. El Molino Avenue in Pasadena.
