Strolling of the Heifers Presents Walk for Amber Story Slam on April 29 at the River Garden, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, 157 Main St., Brattleboro, VT.
Strolling of the Heifers presents the 3rd annual “Walk for Amber Story Slam” hosted by Tracy Dolan Vermont Comedy Club finalist. The Story Slam will be on Saturday, April 29th at 7:00 PM at the River Garden in Brattleboro, VT.
Similar to NPR Moth radio hour, Story Slam is a storytelling “open mic.” Contestants from the audience can put their name in a hat to be selected to tell a 5-minute true story related to the theme for the evening. This year’s theme is “Simple Gifts.” Contestants have the option of using one prop to help illustrate their story. The judges will rate the stories and determine the winners with prizes for the top three stories.
Proceeds from the Story Slam support the Amber Marie Bernier Scholarship Fund, awarded yearly to qualifying students graduating from Brattleboro Union High School. Amber Bernier was a 17-year-old BUHS senior who died just prior to her graduation in 2004. She was a beloved student, remembered for her kindness, beauty and style. The Walk for Amber is a series of annual fundraising events including the Story Slam, the Walk for Amber Walkathon, a raffle and a Dinner which will be held this year on Sunday, June 4, 2017. This is the twelfth Walk for Amber fundraiser.
