On Friday, January 30, 2015, Essex Community Players of Essex, presented a donation to the organization Women Helping Battered Women of Burlington. The check for over $800 represented the donations collected by Essex Community Players during the two-week run of our fall musical, The Spitfire Grill. Through its “Essex Gives Back” program, ECP gives its patrons the opportunity to make donations to a local charitable organization to support their activities.
Thank you to all who made this possible!
