Red Clay Theatre Show to Benefit SERV International
ATLANTA, GA (March 26, 2013) – Cumming, GA-based women’s apparel company Dang
Chicks joins forces with local female singer/songwriters to present Dang Girls Night Out, an

Proceeds from the night will benefit SERV International, a Canton-GA based, non-profit
organization. SERV plans to use funds from the event to provide food for some 30 girls at
Pasitos de Jesus, an orphanage based in the Dominican Republic. SERV will also provide food
for the girls to distribute to widows and single moms and their children in surrounding villages.
Tickets are $20 for premium seats, $15 for standard seats.
“I am so thankful for so much and recognize on a daily basis just how much we all take basic
amenities for granted in this country,” said ‘Mama’ Jan Smith. “Being able to do something I love
with other people who love what they do to benefit those who go without is a total honor and
privilege for me….not to mention that I get to do all this at Red Clay Theatre with Eddie Owen.
Isn’t that what we’re supposed to be doing anyway? And there you go!”
Says Gawley, “It’s an honor to be a part of such a special event where we, as women and
artists, can come together and support each other and such a great organization as SERV. As
a mom, nothing means more to me than showing my children that they can make a
differenceand I love that together we can help empower these girls with a tool to help them help
