Now, that's what I call a D-I-S-C-O shirt!
The Dancing with the Make-A-Wish Stars event at St. Cecilia Music Center has finally arrived. Yes, I'm a little crazy for donning this psychedelic disco shirt! But I have to remind myself that I'm doing this to raise awareness and money for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan. Life is too short to worry about your looks for an event like this. Tonight is about having fun for the sake of the kids.
Join me and fellow local celebrities (DJ Super Dre, East GR coach Peter Stuursma, Lowell coach, Noel Dean, GRPD's, Ralph Mason, City Commissioner, Rosalynn Bliss, Radio Personality, iSteve) as we duke it out on the dance floor. A special thanks to Casey Reed of Salsalogy Dance Academy for finding professional dance partners who have been more than patient in helping us come up with that one perfect routine for the evening. Of course, a special thanks goes to my partner, Molly Thompson, for being such a great sport and a pleasant partner on the dance floor. Molly, you're the best!
Thanks to DJ Todd Ernst for painstakingly mixing our song for this evening - it will be rockin' inside St. Cecilia!
I also want to thank all the well wishers for all the warm support. I am deeply honored to have received so many financial donations for my efforts from friends and colleagues. You guys are fantastic and a true testament to the generosity of our community.
These are my ROCK STARS to date:
Michael De Meyer
Audrey and Josh Depenbrok
Julie and Greg Hoelscher
Alticor Corporate Enterprises
Jim and Barb Weaver
Wolverine Power Marketing Cooperative
Don "Big Daddy" MacKenzie
