 “School Days at MADCAPS High”

Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS) is celebrating its 60th anniversary of community service with its annual benefit show that takes place from Thursday, March 12 through Saturday, March 14 in Point Loma Nazarene University’s Brown Chapel Theater. The theme for this year’s benefit show is “School Days at MADCAPS High.” Relive your own high school memories, as the MADCAPS girls take us on a journey through high school life. In addition, each night a philanthropy that MADCAPS partners with will also be featured.

Tickets for this year’s show go on sale February 1, 2020 with prices ranging from $10 to $35. Sponsorships are also available. Tickets, and more information about sponsoring the benefit show are available at

“We are thrilled to be celebrating our 60th anniversary. It is an important milestone for our organization and we are proud of the impact we have had on our community since 1960, said Nancy Kaase, MADCAPS president.  “We would like to invite the community to attend our upcoming benefit show. It will be very entertaining performance as well as an opportunity to support our organization as we continue to raise much needed funds for local nonprofits.”

This annual musical extravaganza has become MADCAPS signature fundraising event to provide financial support to dozens of local charities. The underwriting of major production costs, proceeds from ticket and advertising sales, and the donated time and expertise of the girls, their families and friends, make it possible to give to these local San Diego nonprofits. All of this would not be possible without the generous support of this year’s benefit show sponsors, which include The Sinnott Family, Point Loma Association, Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern, Ocean Dental Care – Michelle Yamada, DDS, Inc., San Diego Smile Pro- Dr. Adams, and West Coast General Building Contractors, Inc.

MADCAPS formed in 1960 when a group of 27 mothers came together with the common goal of creating a philanthropic organization alongside their daughters. The purpose as a private, nonprofit organization is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and support of established philanthropic organizations. To further this purpose, mothers will actively nurture the training of their daughters in philanthropic commitments, teaching personal responsibility, as well as responsibility to the needs of others, so that all members may fully realize the benefits of involvement in the community.

The organization is comprised of over 200 mothers and their daughters in seventh through twelfth grade who reside in the neighborhoods of Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Hills and Hillcrest. In addition to the over 8,000 hours of community service volunteered by the girls each year, MADCAPS presents an annual high-energy music and dance benefit show to raise additional funds for these local charities.

Since its inception, MADCAPS has raised over $1,270,000 for local charities and performed thousands of hours of volunteer service to nonprofit organizations throughout the San Diego community. Organizations that have benefited from MADCAPS philanthropy include Father Joe’s Villages, YMCA Becky’s House, UCSD Bannister Family House, Rady Children’s Hospital, Autism Tree Project Foundation, Therapeutic Recreation Services, San Diego Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, and San Diego River Park Foundation. MADCAPS also volunteer their time at the yearly Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. For more information about MADCAPS visit
