Friends of Denver arts journalist Eden Lane presented an evening of cabaret titled All We Need is Love to raise funds in support of InFocus with Eden Lane, which airs at 7 p.m. Fridays on Colorado Public Television.

The lineup at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret included organizers Eugene Ebner and Paul Page, along with Leonard Barrett Jr., Joanie Brosseau-Beyette, Abby Apple Boes, Jennifer DeDominici, Shane Delavan, Michael J. Duran, Anna Marie High, Jessie Page and Parker Redford. The accompanist on piano was Dan Dobbins. The emcee was Chris Parente, host of Colorado’s Everyday show on Fox TV.  

Ebner reports the evening raised $1,100 in net proceeds. Lane’s weekly look at the arts in Colorado is entirely self-produced at a cost of about $1,000 an episode, all of which Lane incurs – or raises – herself.

And in something of a fundraiser within a fundraiser, Lane put a collection shoe out in the lobby as part of the Denver Actor’s Fund’s Tap Shoe Initiative. She collected $208 for donation to the organization, which provides modest relief when members of the theatre community face medical difficulties. Lane’s shoe was an homage to the song, “You Came a Long Way from St. Louis,” which she has previously performed.
