Community, nightlife and entertainment events for the weekend and beyond
From an all-volunteer cabaret to help kids to a costume party that celebrates a Jewish holiday while supporting LGBT rights, the weekend of March 9-10 will be busy with benefits.
CHRIS Kids, a local provider of housing and services programs for youth, will host its Seasons of Love cabaret benefit March 9-10 at the 14th Street Playhouse.
The annual event, celebrating its 10th year, features cabaret singing and dancing from an all-volunteer cast and crew over two nights.
This year’s event, “Encore! The Best of 10 Years of Seasons of Love,” will relive many of the best moments of the fundraiser’s history. Some 35 numbers will be performed, ranging from pop to Motown to Broadway classics, says JD Kellum, a CHRIS Kids boardmember and performer in the cabaret.

The now annual costume party returns with Egyptian theme
The fifth annual Purim Off Ponce costume party on March 12 is going with an Egyptian theme this year and asking the Pharaoh to “Let My People Come Out.” The event is a fundraiser for the Rainbow Center, a Jewish non-profit with the mission of helping gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people of all denominations.
“The theme of ‘Let My People Come Out’ is a way to say let people be themselves regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” says Rebecca Stapel-Wax, executive director of the Rainbow Center.
Each year the celebration honors “mensches” — people who have done good work for the community. This year the honorees are Charlie Chasen and Beverly Korfin.
