A portion of the proceeds raised from tickets sales to the party and from every ticket sold for the September 1st – 4th performances will benefit Marriage Equality New York, an all-inclusive organization whose mission is to educate the public by raising awareness of the important right of all persons to enter into legally recognized gender neutral civil marriage with all the benefits and responsibilities that entails.
“Just when you thought the hair couldn’t get any higher and the yelling couldn’t get any louder, here come the housewives,“ says Dina Manzo. “Everyone has a so much fun at this show. Audiences laugh out loud, it’s got an important message for everyone and the money raised from the ticket sales for these four performances will benefit such a terrific cause. So when I asked the ladies to be a part of it, they were thrilled to come on board. This is one wedding party you are not going to want to miss!”
