Spun Silver: I've been informed that the best way to help out this show if you're unable to attend in person is to act on this option listed on the FAQ page:
May I make a direct contribution through Skaters Care to the American Red Cross?
Push the "Donate" button at: http://www.skaterscare.com/faq
The organizers are grateful to anyone and everyone who either buys tickets or donates to the cause.
Here's the updated cast list: http://www.skaterscare.com/skaters
PS: What are Bebe Liang and Braden Overett doing together?? Yum, yum. Wish I could go!
Citizens Business Bank Arena and Ticketmaster have generously reduced the "convenience fee" for tickets ordered at www.ticketmaster.com to $3.50 per ticket. Granted this is additional to the face value of the ticket, but when compared to what gas is costing these days and the fact that you can choose your seat on-line and know exactly where you are going to sit, it's a pretty good deal. If you are buying a large group, however, you may want to call the CBBA box office and make arrangements for will-call.
Also, the "Club sections" 103, 104 and 105, will be available for sale, sometime on Monday. The Club holders have "first right of refusal" which expired on Saturday night. They actually should have been available now, however, there was a technical difficulty with Ticketmaster, which won't be resolved until Monday. We apologize for any inconvenience
For those who are going to the Benefit and purchased the VIP packaged, I recieved a call earlier today from Ticketmaster stating that the VIP package was cancelled. did anyone else recieve the same call?
I hope someone will report on the show for us!
There is a report at Aunt Joyce today.
Thanks. Attendance is always a problem, esp. with something organized so fast. But they raised some money for relief and sent a lovely message of encouragement to Japan, so good job.
We never had time to do a program with full credits.

I was moved just to hear of this.
I want to say Thank You to this show, and everyone who made it possible.
