The New Ed F. Sullivan Show is shaping up to bring areas best to Huntingtown stage
Clare O’Shea headlines list of talent set to perform
Prince Frederick, Md., Aug. 24, 2010 -- The list of talent lining up to perform at the Sept. 25, 2010 premier of the New Ed F. Sullivan Show** continues to impress and now is the time to reserve your tickets.
Singer, writer and actress Clare O’Shea headlines the event which also includes performances by the Southern Maryland Blend Quartet, the Iverson Mall Walker Line Dancers, The Chesapeake Swing Band, Diva Rose Bullock and Jazz Singer Joyce Kinser – to name just a few.
Huntingtown High School’s main auditorium will be home for the variety show which will also feature live commercial ads for its sponsors. All of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the Adult Day Care of Calvert County (ADC).
“This fund raiser continues to grow in talent and sponsorships,” said ADC Executive Director Ed. F. Sullivan. “We can’t thank our community enough for its support.” Sullivan, who was hired April 1, 2009, hopes the play on his name and the famous 1950-1960s show will help to make this benefit the largest held for ADC. “Now is the time to reserve your tickets!” said Sullivan. “We want to sell every seat in the auditorium.”
The goal is to raise funds to purchase a new wheelchair-accessible, 18-seat passenger vehicle so Adult Day Care of Calvert County can continue to provide safe, reliable and daily transportation for its participants, explained Sullivan, adding; “Tremendously artistic people have stepped up to provide an afternoon of great entertainment for our community all in the name of helping us raise money. We are very excited, and humbled.”
ADC provides a structured, therapeutic program for adults, age 18 and older whom are physically, mentally or emotionally challenged. The majority of ADC’s clients have dementia. The center is located on the campus of the Calvert Memorial Hospital in the lower level of the Calvert County Health Department Building in Prince Frederick, Md. Each weekday up to 28 clients engage in social and creative activities that enhance their quality of life. The professional staff and many volunteers at Adult Day Care have been serving citizens in Calvert County for more than 24 years while providing door-to-door bus service.
Referrals for admission are accepted from individuals, family members, social services and health professionals, clergy, friends, and other concerned persons.
