Good Golly Miss Molly

Yeppers folks, this past Friday night it was that time of the year again. Time for Uncle Jeffy and, "his band", The Church of Rock, to "perform" in the annual Carousel Center Gala. The Carousel Center is my very favorite local charity because 100% of the proceeds raised stay right here in our community to help heal and protect victims of child abuse. Since its inception in 2000, The Carousel Center has provided forensic medical and trauma therapy services for 3,700 children in a six county area. The average age of a child seen at the center is a mere 5 years old.

The Gala is The Carousel Center's largest fund raising event of the year and this year it raised 100 grand. WHOOP WHOOP! Performers lip synch to songs and have an absolute blast entertaining the audience. Kickin' it Country was the theme this year. Although country was completely out of The Church of Rock's comfort zone, they flirted with disaster by doin' a little Molly Hatchet. And, I must say, the Church of Southern Rock nailed it.
Good Golly Miss Molly!!!!

  1. They look the rockin' part!
    That's a lot of money raised and a great way to give back to the community. But almost four thousand children? That's too many. Some sick people out there.

    1. You are right that is way too many children! I wish The Carousel Center was out of business. But sadly child abuse does not discriminate between race, gender, religion or social standing.

  3. That is a lot of kids and in a smaller area too, sickos and such scum buckets need to be thrown in a hole. Awesome so much was raised though and they sure got the part down.

    1. Luckily the conviction rate of the scum bags has risen thanks to the efforts of the Center too.

  7. The Church of Rock is a fun looking group. The Carousel Center sounds like a wonderful charity. I agree that I wish those types of organizations weren't needed but it seems that there is no end in sight for this type of need. Those numbers are staggering.
