Below is a picture of me with all the entertainers. Each of them has a great story/testimony, and I was honored to be in each of their presence on Saturday. God has truly blessed each of them with talents and gifts, and I'm blessed that they chose to spend their Saturday afternoon helping to raise money for our program.
Robert Hollywood (below) is a gifted DJ and singer and dancer he toured the world with UP WITH PEOPLE and for years has been performing at some of the top events of the year in the Menifee Valley area. He is also a line dancing expert. We affectionaltly referred to him as "DJ Hollywood." He was fantastic at keeping the crowd entertained and generating a lot of funny commentary.
I had the opportunity to speak briefly about my story and advocacy work with the Ms. Wheelchair California pageant before the entertainment began!

Finally, we did some drawings for prizes of which I had to shuffle through a bowl of a lot of names to call out prize winners! I felt like I was on the "Price Is Right" again, but on the other side!
