On Stage Live – tonight

Dear Editor:

We would like to invite the Aspen community to celebrate the holidays with a fun, family-friendly variety show at the Wheeler Opera House this Saturday, Nov. 27. The third annual “On Stage Live” event will benefit the Shining Stars Foundation and National Multiple Sclerosis Society, bringing hope and healing to kids and adults struggling with life-altering diseases. We will have a unique blend of talent featuring world class multi-instrumental performer Kenny “The Professor” Watson, performance artist Majid Kahhak, mentalist Eric Mead, and ventriloquist Ted Davis.

The Shining Stars Foundation provides sport, recreational, and outreach programs for children with cancer and life-threatening diseases at no cost to the child or their families. The foundation is a local Aspen charity that has provided services to more than 350 critically ill children and approximately 2,000 family members.

Funds raised from this event will be used to support the Aspen Winter Games, a week-long program that brings children and their medical team to Aspen where they are challenged to accomplish things that they never thought possible through participation in a diverse range of recreational activities, including adaptive skiing. These experiences give critically ill children a new confidence and belief in themselves, while bonding each child with peers facing similar challenges, through which they are brought out of isolation and gain strength. This ultimately restores their will to live.

Join us for a fun evening and make a difference this Saturday! For more information about “On Stage Live” and to purchase tickets please visit AspenShowTix.com. Happy holidays to you and yours.
