PAY IT FORWARD
“The greatest effects we have on the world are the ones we can never see.”
- Chris Matakas, The Tao of Jiu Jitsu

Here’s a thought! We believe it’s possible to inject some joy in many different ways. We’d like to encourage everyone to participate and think of passing on an act of kindness. Whether you want to thank your staff for an amazing year, your friend needs a pick-me-up, or you notice someone being exactly what the world needs to bring us to a better place. That act could be to gift an evening of joyous abandon with The Upside Down Cabaret festival. You can pay it forward!
If you would like to pay it forward, by purchasing a seat or table, for a special someone or to sponsor a group you feel needs a little sunshine, just contact us to discuss what we can do to help you show your support! Contact by emailing: bterongopait@gmail.com
