The Carousel Center 80's Gala
A totally tubular 80's to the max fundraiser was held this past Saturday night to benefit my favorite charity The Carousel Center. This is seriously the best fundraiser EVAH, not only because it's an absolute riot, but because all of the money raised benefits local victims of child abuse. The Carousel Center is an amazing organization here in southeastern North Carolina that provides medical exams, interviews and therapy services in a child friendly environment to victims of physical and sexual abuse. Plus, they help put the bad guys in the slammer where they belong!
Anywho, the gala brings together community folks who dress up and lip synch on stage. This year's theme was the 80's so Uncle Jeffy and the Church of Rock were definitely in their hey day! That's them as Aerosmith and Run DMC.
Oh yea, they had it goin' on baby and rocked the crowd with Walk This Way! Truly all the performers brought their A game this year and I'm proud to report that over $110,000 was raised for The Carousel Center.
And I'm telling you when my friend Bo Dean got up there as the Divine Miss M, he brought the house down! Dang, he just nailed it. So, I guess we will all put away the wigs until next year's gala. Or maybe not. I'm definitely stealing Steven Tyler's kimono!
