    Skaters Care Tsunami Benefit, April 3rd, Ontario, California

    A skating benefit will be held April 3rd in Ontario, California.

    http://www.iceskatingintnl.com/archi...%20benefit.htm

    This is going to be a great show for a worthy cause. I hope fans in Southern California will make every effort to attend. Ticket prices are very affordable and will go on sale Monday or Tuesday through Ticketmaster or the arena box office.

    I am sworn to secrecy for who is being lined up to skate and as master of ceremonies, but they are well known names fans will want to see.

    What a lovely thing to do. I wish it could be televised. Maybe Japanese TV will pick it up and we can watch over the internet.

    I'm on the opposite coast but I'll buy a ticket or two to show my support.

    What a great idea! I'll contact the organizers and maybe there will be a way for generous fans like you to do it.

    They should arrange to accept donations from those not able to attend but want to support the cause.

    You know what would be astoundingly cool? If Yu-na Kim participated.

    Yu-Na has gone back to Korea (otherwise she may very well have participated on some level?). None of the US Stars on Ice skaters will be able to participate in this show due to their tour commitment (Cleveland show is on April 3).

    To Mathman or another GS moderator: would you consider adding the date & location -- "April 3rd in Ontario, California" -- to this thread title?

    The official SKATERS CARE web site is up and running now: http://www.skaterscare.com/

    The performers who have confirmed their participation so far are listed on the "Skaters" page: http://www.skaterscare.com/skaters

    Read the FAQ for one way to buy and donate show tickets to the cause (I believe other options are in the works): http://www.skaterscare.com/faq

    Already under discussion by the organizers. Probably as a donation button on the event website when it is up and running. Expect that some time this weekend.

    Thanks, but only GS moderators can modify thread titles at this point (I think thread starters just have 5 minutes to edit their titles?).

    Thanks to Spun Silver!

    If anyone else has any good suggestions or ideas for the SKATERS CARE web site or the show in general, please feel free to post them in this thread.

    ETA: Thanks, Mathman!

    ^

    The reason for that rule is that after another poster responds to a thread, that thread then belongs to everyone, not just to the OP.

    This is awesome, I will probably go as Ontario is not that far (2 hours) from where I live.
