Cirque Dreams Holidaze Founder Neil Goldberg Brings Good Tidings to Second Helpings Charity in Indianapolis

News 12/17/15

The holiday spirit is in full force in The Circle City and you can be a part of it, too. Broadway In Indianapolis has announced a partnership with Cirque Dreams Holidaze and Tonic Ball that will support Second Helpings, a nonprofit food rescue and distribution network. Cirque Dreams Holidaze plays the Old National Center through December 20.

Cirque Dreams founder Neil Goldberg recently visited Indianapolis, and wanting to express his appreciation for how Indianapolis has embraced the Cirque Dreams Holidaze's first appearance in the city, he selected Second Helpings as a local organization to both donate tickets and make a financial contribution.

"We wanted to show our appreciation to the city and Cirque Dreams fans at a time of the year when giving is meaningful," said Goldberg, in a statement. "Each year, Tonic Ball benefits Second Helpings and its work to feed thousands of children, families and adults in and around Indianapolis, and our support will hopefully also nourish their minds and imaginations this holiday season."

Each day, Second Helpings volunteers and staff rescue prepared and perishable food from wholesalers, retailers and restaurants—preventing unnecessary waste. That rescued food is used to create 4,000 hot, nutritious meals each day that are distributed to 80 social service agencies that feed people in need. The Second Helpings Culinary Job Training program trains disadvantaged adults for careers in the food service industry. More than 600 adults have graduated from this program, and Second Helpings alumni are now working in Central Indiana as cooks, executive chefs, business owners and culinary instructors.

"While many in Indianapolis will be dazzled by the artistry of Cirque Dreams, we’re grateful to Mr. Goldberg, and Tonic Ball for their commitment to making the lives of thousands more a bit brighter this holiday season," said Jennifer Vigran, Executive Director of Second Helpings, in a statement.

Cirque Dreams Holidaze is a new cirque show, a Broadway musical, a holiday extravaganza and a family Christmas spectacular all in one! You'll be amazed by this holiday spectacle with over 300 costumes, 20 acts and 30 artists from every corner of the globe. Many of these acts have been featured on America’s Got Talent, making Cirque Dreams Holidaze the greatest holiday variety show on the planet.
