Red Cross fundraiser a successPublished 2:27pm Saturday, December 15, 2012
How do I put into words last Saturday nights successful American Red Cross fundraiser held at the Historic Paramount Theatre? Enthusiastic! Energetic! Festive! Reminiscent! These adjectives would surely describe the evening of entertainment. Perhaps if I were to use a proper noun to describe it, sorry English teachers, it would be; Dylan, Dylan, Dylan!
I’m speaking of Dylan Kaercher, the man who contacted the Red Cross, told them of his plan to raise money for them, called all the singers, dancers, announcers, models, and more. He, along with his entourage, orchestrated over 100 volunteer performers of different ages and career backgrounds, lending their talents for a great cause.
His vision was more than “sugar plums” dancing in his head. With months of hard work and rehearsal after rehearsal and hours of design, it became real on the stage filling the hearts of the sold out crowd that night. We would like to say “Thank you” Dylan for asking so many of us to share in your vision. Bravo! Bravo!
