50% of profits benefit Y TEENS REBUILD NEW ORLEANS , the fourth year of an extraordinarily successful North Shore YMCA service-learning trip to help rebuild the Katrina ravaged City. 

“I think it’s really important to provide teens and young adults with opportunities that take them outside of their comfort zone, teach the intrinsic rewards of serving others and help them experience the impact of working together for a stronger community,” Says Rick Doucette, Executive Director of Teen & Camp Services of the Cape Ann YMCA. “We expect about 100 teens from across the 26 communities served by the North Shore YMCA to join us for this vital service-learning trip this April.” 

“The trip and the fundraising efforts have grown together,” explains Peter Van Ness, co-producer, with his wife, Vickie, of the gimmeLIVE Mardi Gras weekend benefit.  “Last year we sold out Minglewood Tavern in Gloucester .  This year we’re taking it to a whole new level and we were thrilled when the historic Larcom Theatre in Beverly offered their space.  It’s a jewel right in our own back yard.”

Built in 1912, The Larcom Theater had been home to Le Grand David Magic show for 35 years until it closed last May. With its elegant horseshoe balcony, antique pressed tin ceilings and original silk wall coverings, the Larcom evokes the grand theater experience of a hundred years ago.  The Larcom welcomes Grammy-winning saxophonist Charles Neville with Henri Smith and his band on Friday, February 8 in the spirit of building community on Boston ’s North Shore and in New Orleans .
