Jacob's Big Liver Cabaret on September 28

The Sprankle family has been a staple in the Columbia theatre community for many years. Jacob Sprankle, the middle son, was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, a rare liver disease. The only cure for this is liver transplantation. For Jacob, his only option is Live Liver Donation. They’re currently searching for a donor and are very close to finding a match. Their hope is to have a match by the end of September. All money raised at this event will go to help pay for medical bills, travel for both Jacob and the donor, and general expenses that the family will incur including lost wages due to helping care for Jacob before and after the surgery. Come see this fantastic cabaret at 11pm following that evening's performance of She Loves Me . If you cannot attend, but would like to donate, please visit their Gofundme page.
