A portion of the show’s ticket proceeds went to PAWS Chicago. PAWS Chicago is the city’s largest no-kill humane organization, focused on solutions to end the killing of homeless pets. Since its founding in 1997, homeless dogs and cats killed annually in the city of Chicago has dropped more than 50 percent.
