DoveTales 2017

Friday October 20, 2017


7:00-9:00 pm


American Legion Hall

To all of our Sponsors, donors, volunteers, audience members,
and especially our storytellers!
DoveTales 2017 was a big success,
netting over $25,000 to help hundreds of community members.

DoveTales is a unique event unlike any other in Tallahassee. People from our community donate their time to tell a true story to our audience. The six stories are each about 10 minutes long and tend towards the entertaining, though some stories may be more poignant as they relate a life lesson learned. Now in its 5th year, this sell out event is pure entertainment.
Mike Rychlik is the emcee for the evening and skillfully
weaves his music into the introductions and transitions.
All proceeds support the life changing therapy provided at Lee’s Place. See you on October 20th!

This year in addition to a ticket to the storytelling event ( $35.00 each) you can purchase a ticket to the VIP event. It starts at 6 pm in the gardens of Lee’s Place and has finger foods donated by local area restaurants as well as beer donated by Grasslands Brewery. Tickets to the VIP are separate and are $75.00 each.

Our 2017 storytellers:

Sharon Ames -Dennard, Prissy Elrod, Ned Stuckey-French,
Wellington Meffert, Margie Menzel, and Audra Pittman
