If you haven't gotten your tickets to Shepherdstown's Big Event...
it's not too late! Timeline Photos
Identity Crisis was started as a social event 5 years ago and it has grown into a community fundraiser that brings hundreds to Shepherdstown. It is a celebration of life, a menagerie of creativity and a banding together of individuals, businesses and organizations for charity. Although, not strictly a breast cancer fundraiser, this will be the third year that we have chosen Breast Cancer Awareness-Cumberland Valley to raise money for.
Each year when we meet with BCA-CV, our passion to help them make a difference is reenergized. All three of the staff are breast cancer survivors and extremely dedicated and connected to the cause. All programs are free and the support system that is offered is astounding. The organization offers hope, understanding, support, human compassion and a wonderful group of peers who have gone through or are going through similar situations.
BCA-CV serves Washington and Frederick counties in Maryland, Franklin and Fulton counties in Pennsylvania, and Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties in West Virginia and Winchester, Virginia areas. For more information contact Janet Lung, executive director, Breast Cancer Awareness- Cumberland Valley 322 East Antietam St., Suite 101 Hagerstown, MD 21740 or call 301-791-5843 or 800-963-0101.

To explain how to be a participant of Identity Crisis is simple and complex simultaneously. The first thing to remember about Identity Crisis is that there are loose guidelines, but no rules. This year, the theme is MUSIC: A Trip in Time.
So, rock and roll stars, right? Well, not that simple. Music is a complex subject, you know? If you were going to research music, ask yourself, What is music? You might go back to where and when music might have originated. Funny, right? Caveman time? Or perhaps you are a theologian? Perhaps it is from Grecian origin?
Then you might also ask yourself what is music? Well, there are so many genres and types it can make your head spin. And how is music made? Finally, we get to who because you are challenged to dress up as a character/IDENTITY from past, present or future that is music inspired.
So, yes, there is rock n roll, but there are musicians, bands and groups, even a slimy, money grubbing manager? A behind the door groupie perhaps? A record label owner or paparazzi or even a roadie? And don't even get me started on broadway musicals and movie dance scenes . . . the idea here is to be creative, but mostly come out and support the event. You may even want to try your first year just spectating?
The event begins at 8pm Saturday, August 9. Throughout the evening there will be drink specials, dancing and general fun & folly in the six venues participating in Shepherdstown. The town will be lit up and will be sure to be fun. If you are interested in raising awareness and funds for breast cancer and want to have fun, come on out to Shepherdstown for the Identity Crisis Fundraiser. Funds are raised through donations from venues, percentage of sales, door covers, ticket sales for our own Club Crisis, corporate sponsorship and individual donations.
