When it comes to special events, AOK Cabaret provides that rare combination of high quality and low cost.  Our audience liked what they saw and heard so much the first time that we called them back for an encore performance the following year!  When you add in that they are a mission-driven arts organization themselves you’ve got one great package.

What can you say about a non-profit that entertains for another non-profit’s fundraiser and blows the house away?  Essentially one workd will do: WOW!  Many of their songs brought forth memories that evoked cheers, tears and laughter.  We heard for days after the event what a memorable and fun evening it was.  Hilary and her entire team were fabulous to work with, easy to communicate with and incredibly professional on all levels.  We definitely hope to repeat this fundraiser again next year.

As I said Saturday night, the word ‘cabaret’ is too small a word for what you do.  How your heart for humanity shines through your performance!  The ensemble work was vocally flawless, the intonation so pure.  It will be so good to see how AOK progresses.  It is a wonderful service to mankind and a very enjoyable fundraiser.
“I went to my book club on Monday, and the gossip grapevine had already spread the word about the amazing fundraiser we had with the unbelievable cabaret singers! The superintendent said that he had never attended a cabaret before and was amazed at how much he enjoyed it.  One woman, who lost her husband this past year and has not been going out, thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful feeling that she received by being there.  A board member emailed to say 'thank you' for the wonderful evening of music and food.  Her husband was thrilled to be there too!   It was such a good-feeling relationship builder for our foundation! Thank you!"

We had a wonderful experience working with Acts Of Kindness Cabaret for a friend/fundraiser earlier this summer. They took care of every performance aspect of the event which included visiting the venue several weeks early to assure an optimal setup. They put on a world-class show! We opted for, “You Can’t Be Serious,” which was funny, entertaining and seriously well-sung. Our event was a success thanks to the supremely talented and professional Acts Of Kindness Cabaret!

The Cabaret was a fun event! Many in town didn’t know what a cabaret is and were surprised at how fun and entertaining it was. We served appetizers, sweets, wine and soft drinks and everyone had a great time. Highly recommend Hilary Feldman and her ladies – their voices are superb. It was simply good family entertainment!

Catherine Game, Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods

Thank you to your amazingly talented team!  You truly do make the production so simple to implement -- a genius idea!  Everyone loved the event!  I hope that we can partner with you again next year.  We might have a new tradition!  Thanks for all the time and talent you give to make these opportunities possible.
“We were awed!  We completely forgot that we were on the Northwest side of Chicago at the Copernicus banquet hall. Our neighborhood. Acts Of Kindness Cabaret presented Broadway show level entertainment which ended much too soon.  We would have stayed for an Act 3 and even Act 4 - that's how enthralled we were. And to be in such an intimate setting with the performers. Many of us thought the songs spoke directly to us. Wow!  And I have listened to my CD's several times since."
