22nd Annual CWB Benefit
Our most popular annual event is going online. As much as we would love to celebrate in person, for the safety of all, we have chosen a virtual format.
BONUS: In addition to our matinee (2 Pacific) and gala performance (7:30 Pacific), we have a special line up of workshops, panel discussions, and an open mic!
For over 25 years, Clowns Without Borders has proved that in the face of incredible hardship, laughter can be healing. Laughter offers a moment of connection and levity for those experiencing displacement, isolation, or grief. Let us share our superpower with you by sharing a show that inspires resilience and builds community.
