Western talent Show raised funds and awareness for american Cancer Society

Eight Contestants Performed for the Crowd

Tucson, AZ, May 13th, 2018 - Over 100 attendees crowded into the Sheraton Tucson Hotel & Suites on Sunday, May 6th to enjoy music and dancing with delicious bites and a great western talent show.   

Deb and Tim Rossi, Event Co-Chairs, have been dedicated volunteers for many years and started when Deb was diagnosed with aggressive Cancer in 2008.  Deb has lost seventeen members of her immediate family as well as Tim’s mother to Cancer.   Deb and Tim led the event that went off without a hitch.   Deb is celebrating ten years of being cancer-free.    The Rossi’s are excited to announce the winners of the Western Talent Show.

Winner of the People’s Choice Award:   Rodeo City Wreckettes

Winner of the Celebrity Judge’s Choice Award:  Carissa Carona

 

Emcee, Luigi Fiorino, aka Whyte Panther, entertained attendees with his original songs.  Whyte was asked about the event and he replied, “We had a great turnout and the size of the crowd was exceeded only by their generosity.  The competitors all brought their "A" games and a fantastic time was had by one and all. The committee, the volunteers, the contestants, the performers, and everyone involved contributed so much love and energy that it was hard not to be moved.  We all had a genuinely wonderful time and all learned a lot about the programs and mission of the American Cancer Society to our local community as well as nationwide.  I simply cannot wait for the upcoming gala in September... it will be an immersive dinner theater type event with great food, great people, and a night of entertainment that you DO NOT want to miss!  A heartfelt "thank you" to one and all who participated on the 6th.”  For more information please go to www.acslivedinnershow.com

The Celebrity Judges offered positive advice to each contestant.  We would like to thank Eric Schumacher, Dr. Liz Almli, Shane Harbin, Emily Eldredge, Alan Maymo, Malan Jones, Bruce Andre and Jeannie Tucker.

Each member of the committee has worked hard to make this event special.  We thank the following members: Larry Fox, Wanda Fry, Shane Harbin, Chanel Lopez, Nina Mamula, Key Phillips, Andrea Shirley, and J Beth Wright, and Kevin Fischer.   Thank you to our sponsors, Tucson Medical Center, Sonora Quest Tucson, Norma Zimdahl, and Roche.  Photo credit Darlene Krueger.
