FANTASY PARTNERS WITH THE SHADE TREE
IN HONOR OF DEBBIE FLORES NARVAEZ
Dancer’s Sister to Tour Shelter on First Anniversary of Passing
Celeste Flores Narvaez, the sister of former FANTASY dancer Debbie Flores Narvaez, will honor Debbie as she takes her first tour of The Shade Tree shelter center Monday, Dec. 12 at 10 a.m. The date marks the first anniversary of Flores Narvaez’s passing. Following Debbie’s tragic death, The Shade Tree has been an advocate in her case helping to bring awareness to the tragedy and domestic abuse.
“Telling the story of Debbie Flores Narvaez has saved lives because her story inspired victims to seek protection for their families at The Shade Tree,” said Marlene Richter, executive director of The Shade Tree. “We want her memory to live on as a reminder to women that there is help in our community.”
On Monday, Dec. 12, Anita Mann Productions (AMP) and the cast of FANTASY will donate a portion of ticket sales from that evening’s show to The Shade Tree in memory of Debbie. Additionally, to celebrate the holidays, AMP will make donations on behalf of friends and colleagues to The Shade Tree including gifts from toy stores for the children living in the shelter.

Its mission: to provide safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis and to offer life-changing services promoting stability, dignity, and self-reliance. The Shade Tree provides shelter to over 3,350 women and children in crisis a year and up to 364 each night in both emergency and transitional programs.
