Kosovo benefit planned in Martinsburg

May 13, 1999|By BRYN MICKLE

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Berkeley County church is looking to Broadway to help raise money for the crisis in Kosovo.

Trinity Lutheran Church on W.Va 45 in Arden will host show tunes with Trivial Pursuit at 7 p.m. Saturday in a fund-raiser for Doctors Without Borders, Donna Giguet said.

Ellen McDaniel-Weissler, of Hedgesville, W.Va., created "Trivial Broadway" about six years ago as a useful outlet for "all the useless trivia I had mushed inside my head."

An opera student who has studied at Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, McDaniel said she has performed the show around the nation.


The show features 14 Broadway numbers interspersed with trivia about the shows and movies they inspired.

Organizers are hoping to draw about 200 people for the show with the proceeds going to help people injured in the Kosovo conflict.

Doctors Without Borders is a group that provides free medical care in humanitarian efforts around the globe, Giguet said.

"We wanted to pick an organization where the money would be used directly to help people," Giguet said.

No tickets are being sold for the event, but Giguet said the church is asking for donations.
