Dinner in the Garden

Sat, Oct 19, 2019

The Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home has long been a symbol of hope in our community. It is a place where young ladies who have suffered sexual, physical and emotional trauma can come to heal. Our residential program provides life skills and therapeutic services for female residents who desperately need an environment which allows them this opportunity to receive educational, emotional, and daily living support. It is with much excitement that we have begun preparations for the third annual Dinner in the Garden. This year, our committee has chosen to return to Columbus Botanical Gardens as our backdrop for this epic culinary event scheduled for October 19, 2018. Dinner in the Garden represents the collaboration of local cahefs with farmers from around the region to bring one night of unparalleled culinary excellence to Columbus. We can assure you that October 19th will be a night to remember. With your support, we will be successful in providing for the critical needs of our residents who come to Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home to heal and improve the quality of their lives.

The Rainbow Fish

Sun, Oct 20, 2019

Based on the international bestselling children’s book, Rainbow Fish is the musical story of the ocean’s most beautiful, most shimmery fish. When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against him for his vanity. Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus who helps him understand that it is far more valuable to be admired for being kind than it is for being beautiful. October 12 at 2 pm will be a Sensory Friendly Performance. During this performance, we have added accommodations for patrons with sensory-processing disorders, PTSD, or Autism. For instance, house lights will remain half-lit, trigger-warning lights may illuminate, and we will offer a safe space in our lobby for over-stimulated patrons. This is not a condensed show.
