Lawyer’s theatre pro­duc­tion raises $187,000

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A three-day pro­duc­tion of Agatha Christie’s “Wit­ness for the Pros­e­cu­tion” by The Hamil­ton Lawyers’ Club raised $187,000 for char­ity and lo­cal theatre.

The show, which ran at the Do­fasco Cen­tre for the Arts on King Wil­liam Street June 8 to 10, raised $143,000 for the Lawyers’ Legacy for Chil­dren fund (part of the Hamil­ton Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion) and $44,000 for Theatre Aquar­ius.

Hamil­ton lawyer Jim Cimba said the money raised ex­ceeded the $103,000 raised dur­ing a sim­i­lar pro­duc­tion last year.

“It’s ter­rific and quite an ac­com­plish­ment,” he said.

The cheques were pre­sented Tues­day af­ter­noon at the Hamil­ton Club, where the group also thanked the “big-hearted folks” who helped make the fundraiser show a suc­cess.

“It’s mostly due to hard work of the Hamil­ton bar and the ded­i­ca­tion of the staff,” Cimba said of the event.
