Comedy program to benefit Reinhardt Women’s Leadership Program

Comedian

     Enjoy a side-splittingly hilarious show at Reinhardt’s beautiful Falany Performing Arts Center while helping to empower young women.
    Tennessee native Leanne Morgan is bringing her comedy show to Waleska to help raise funds for the University’s new leadership program for women.  The Reinhardt Women’s Leadership Program is aimed at empowering young women and giving them opportunity to interact with successful, strong women from across the state of Georgia. Ten freshmen are selected each year to participate and receive scholarships for their involvement.


    “She is from Knoxville and I’ve heard her many times,” said Reinhardt University President Dr. Kina Mallard. “I wanted someone who talks about issues women can relate to and I wanted women to get away and laugh. I thought she would be a good start for the fundraising.”
    The show will be held Friday, Sept. 16, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. The cost is $35-$40 for adults, $30-$35 for seniors 55 and older, and $10-$15 for children 12 and younger.  One hundred percent of ticket sales, less cost, will go to the Reinhardt Women’s Leadership Program to help fund scholarships and events. To purchase tickets, call the FPAC Box Office at (770) 720-9167 or visit www.reinhardt.edu/fpac.
