Heights Players Present Benefit for Cancer-Stricken Couple

Sometimes, tragedy strikes in ways that seem unimaginable, as in the instance of a young couple, parents of a 20 month old daughter, both diagnosed with potentially fatal cancers within days of each other.

The Brooklyn Paper: The Heights Players will hold a performance of the company’s current — and very well-reviewed — show, plus raise money through a silent auction for Elisa Bond, who performed in multiple shows for the company, and her husband Nathan — both of whom got the cancer prognosis [sic] in February.

The Bonds and their daughter Sadie live in Bay Ridge. Elisa Bond began performing with the Heights Players at the age of seven. The benefit performance will take place at the Heights Players’ performance space in the A.T. White community Center, 26 Willow Place, on Thursday, May 26 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Heights Players’ website. If you can’t attend, but want to make a donation for Elisa and Nathan, you can do so at this website (thanks to Brooklyn Paper for the link).

    They each got a cancer diagnosis, not prognosis. BHB, put [sic] in there if you need to, so at least your readers know that YOU know the difference.

    This is a heartbreaking story. I hope their prognoses will indeed be the best possible.

    There is another fundraiser for the Bond family happening tonight at the Picnic House in Prospect Park. Dinner, drinks & dancing, with an auction of some pretty unique and interesting items. The event is fully underwritten, so your entire ticket price will help the Bond family. More info and tix at http://www.teambondevent.com .
