Dear friends and community,
Thank you for your amazing support and generosity at our recent FUNdraiser!! We raised over $2000 for our ClownCorps trip to Indonesia and were able to share buoyancy and play in this difficult time.
While we must postpone our tour to Bali, ClownCorps will continue to create space for laughter relief and joyful connection through clowning actions and support locally and online - please stay tuned and know your support makes this possible!
We would like to thank the clowns, people and organizations who so generously donated their time and resources to help make this FUNdraiser a success!
A HUGE CLOWNCORPS THANK YOU!!!!!!

Join ClownCorps for a Clown Party FUNdraiser and Silent Auction to benefit the ClownCorps Social Learning Tour in Bali, Indonesia!
ClownCorps is traveling to Indonesia this April to share interactive performances and workshops in clowning, acrobatics and circus with youth and communities in rural areas across the island of Bali.
Our goal is to offer a unique cross-cultural exchange of laughter, play, and skill-sharing completely free of charge, in partnership with YKIP. a foundation committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in Bali through educational support and services.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Come join us for a night of laughter, play, and the opportunity to score something amazing at our silent auction! Every ticket sold and all funds raised at this event make this tour possible!
EVERYONE LOVES A CLOWN PARTY!
The clowns of ClownCorps will be on hand and in nose to lead clown-related workshops and activities, and perform clown acts throughout the evening.
1 Free Drink and a Clown Snack Buffet.
Participation in all workshops and activities, clown performances and clown-antics, and our Silent Clown Auction!
Doors Open at 6:00pm
Sliding scale tickets range from $0-$50. General tickets can be purchased at $25. All funding benefits the ClownCorps Social Learning Tour in Bali, Indonesia this April. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Highwire Coffee Roasters is located in Berkeley, near the North Berkeley BART station. The event space is wheelchair accessible and has gender neutral bathrooms.

Special Shoutout to our wonderful friends at Highwire Coffee for opening their doors and giving us the space to clown in.

ClownCorps acknowledges that warnings have been issued locally around gatherings of greater than 50 people due to COVID-19. Although we would love 1,000 people to attend and play with us, realistically we believe we will have less than 50 people at the event. So, we are still planning to party tomorrow!
As clowns, it is our role to bring some buoyancy and resilience to moments of difficulty. We plan to provide hand sanitizer and we are making adjustments to our snack and party plans to decrease any risk. We will pass around playfulness and laughter, with the knowledge that if we remain resilient and light in the face of this dynamic situation, we will be stronger.
If you are not feeling well or simply choose to not attend, we support and encourage you to stay home. If you would like a refund of your donation/ticket cost, please reach out to let us know.
Contact us for inquiries or just to say a few nice words, we won’t mind at all.
