MADCAPS Class of 2019 will perform during this year’s benefit show.

Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS) celebrates 59 years of community service with its annual benefit show Thursday, March 7 through Saturday, March 9, in Point Loma Nazarene University’s Brown Chapel Theater. The theme for this year’s show is “Time Travel,” which takes the audience back in time and features a tribute to music from throughout the decades including, 1920s, 1940s, 1960s, 1980s, and 1990s. Tickets for this year’s show go on sale February 1, 2019 with prices ranging from $5 to $25. Tickets can be purchased at

MADCAPS is excited to present this year’s theme “Time Travel” where we will step back in time as we take a journey to your favorite musical era. In addition, each night a philanthropic organization that MADCAPS partners with will also be featured.

MADCAPS mission is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service and support of philanthropic organizations. This show is a celebration of the girls’ hard work and dedication to serving the community.

“Our annual benefit show is an opportunity for our members to produce a fun and entertaining show while raising much needed funds for local nonprofits,” said Nancy Kaase, MADCAPS president. “It’s a great way to engage our junior members to help make a financial contribution to the nonprofits that they have volunteered with.”

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 sponsors, which include The Sinnott Family, Brick Youth Group, Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern, and Brigantine Family of Restaurants.

MADCAPS formed in 1960 when a group of 27 mothers came together with the common goal of creating a philanthropic organization alongside their daughters. They met to consider an invitation to form a San Diego Chapter of the National Charity League. These women decided not to affiliate with this group and voted to form their own organization.

On September 17 of that year, MADCAPS made its debut at a tea for 50 charter members and 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 7th through 12th 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 distributed over $1,160,000 to local charities and completed thousands of hours of direct service. 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 and to purchase tickets visit
