Orlando Story Club Continues Its 2017 Season On Wednesday, July 12 At The Abbey In Downtown Orlando With “Is It Love?”

Join Central Florida’s Fun and Unique Story Telling Series Where Everyone Can Share Their Stories

July Event Proceeds Benefit Timucua Arts Foundation

WHAT:  Orlando Story Club is back this year giving anyone who wishes to tell a personal story a chance to put their name in a hat, and selected individuals chosen at random get to showcase their story telling for the enrichment of the local community.  The July event theme is “Is It Love?” and the benefiting charity is Timucua Arts Foundation. 

HOW:  Admission is $5 at the door with an optional donation for the charity.  Judges award prizes for 1st, 2ndand 3rd place winners.  A guest story teller headlines every show with its own theme, food, drinks and laughter are available in abundance.  All proceeds raised each month support different Orlando philanthropic organizations.

WHEN:  Wednesday, July 12, 2017 from 7pm-9:30pm.  Doors open at 6pm.  Orlando Story Club will continue on the first Wednesday of every other month this year (September 6November 1 and “Best Of” December 13).

WHERE:  The Abbey, 100 South Eola Drive, Orlando, FL 32801.

WHY:  The July charity partner is the Timucua Art Foundation.  The mission of the Timucua Arts Foundation is to present and inspire great music and art in Central Florida through performance and education.  The Timucua Art Foundation began hosting concerts in September 2000 with just a few concerts per year.  In 2007, they moved into a new self-designed and built a house in August 2007. The concert season has now grown to over 70 events per year, with the vast majority with zero admission fees. 

WHO:  Orlando Story Club was founded by storyteller and filmmaker Robin Cowie (“The Blair Witch Project”).  After participating in the national storytelling series The Moth, Central Florida-based Cowie sought out to produce the same event here and so Orlando Story Club was born.  The first event held at Orlando’s East End Market in March 2014 was a standing room only smash hit.  Two years later, Cowie’s popular series caught the attention of Downtown Orlando’s dynamic cultural community Downtown Arts District who teamed up to put on monthly events at The Abbey in Downtown Orlando furthering the growth of Story Club and the arts.
