Memorial Follies comes to the Capitol Theatre this Saturday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The 2013 Memorial Follies comes to Yakima's Capitol Theatre this Saturday.

It's a decades long tradition here in Yakima. It's a variety show using volunteers from the community to raise money for the Memorial Foundation.

Right now they're practicing and getting ready for the big show coming up on Saturday.

Organizers promise singers, belly dancers, and a whole lot more.

The money this year is going directly to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, the Pediatric Hospitalist Program, and the Children's Village.

A cause organizers and volunteers can rally behind.

"The Follies is such a rewarding situation where you're bringing community together to create something together and making some magic," said Show Director Jaime Donegan.

The show has raised over a million dollars for the foundation since 1990. They're shooting to bring in $100,000 this year.

The event is happening on Saturday at the Capitol Theatre.

There are two shows at 2pm or 8pm. Tickets cost anywhere between $10 and $40.

You can buy those at the theatre box office or online at the follies website, here.
