Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS) celebrates 57 years of community service with its annual benefit show Thursday, March 9 through Saturday, March 11, in Point Loma Nazarene University’s Brown Chapel Theater. The theme for this year is “On Broadway,” featuring Broadway hit shows such as “Grease,” “Chicago,” “Saturday Night Fever,” “School of Rock,” “Mama Mia,” “Wicked,” and “Newsies.” Tickets for this year’s show go on sale February 1, 2017 with prices ranging between $5 and $25. Tickets can be purchased at

“MADCAPS is thrilled to present this year’s theme “On Broadway,” says Judy Parker, 2017 Benefit communications chair. “We’re performing a variety of Broadway hit shows in a sensational, show-stopping format, as well as highlighting our real “stars” with special cameos of the philanthropies that we work with.”

In addition, we are supporting San Diego First Church of the Nazarene’s “Homeless Kits” project, by collecting various personal care items. Patrons are asked to bring items like new tube socks, small shampoos, soaps and lip balms, which will be distributed to those in need. All of this would not be possible without the support of sponsors from our community. And so we sincerely thank The Irving Group, Ullman Sails, Bass Family, Ocean Dental, San Diego Funding/Pacific Sotheby’s, and Smith Family.

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 community organizations.

Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS) was formed in 1960. The purpose of MADCAPS, as a private, nonprofit organization, is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and support of established philanthropic organizations. The group consists of approximately 180 mothers and their 7th through12th grade daughters from the Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Hills and Hillcrest areas.

Since its inception in 1960, MADCAPS has raised more than $900,000 for the community and contributed tens of thousands of hours volunteering for philanthropic organizations.
