Benefit Starring Comedian Maryellen Hooper

This is information for a benefit for a little boy in my community named Noah. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in October there will be a benefit at Celebration High School with nationally known comedian Maryellen Hooper. I've seen Maryellen Hooper perform and she is hysterical! She performs regularly in Vegas and has been on the Jay Leno show numerous times.

Please join us on Wednesday, April 14th at 7:00PM at Celebration High School for this very worthy event. All money from ticket sales will go directly to Noah's family to help pay for his escalating medical costs. If you have anything you'd like to donate such as a service, gift certificate, timeshare stay, etc. it would be much appreciated. Please contact Tracey Prever directly (photos@traceyprever.com) about silent auction items. The high school can hold 600 people in the auditorium and we would love for that to happen.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available at the door.

About Noah…

Noah just turned 6 years old on Sept. 19, 2009. He had the coolest Lego Star Wars birthday party ever! If they had a “who can build a Lego Star Wars ship the fastest” contest…Noah would win, hands down. That’s because, “The force is very strong with this one.”

Aside from being everyone’s best friend and or husband at school, Noah finished up all his Kindergarten work in record time and was moved to the first grade class at Celebration Montessori.

When Noah’s not playing with his sister, Landin or building Star Wars Legos…he’s making his Mom and Dad laugh by saying “The darnedest things”.

On Oct. 29, 2009 Noah’s life was rudely interrupted by a Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor.

Since it took enough medicine to knock out 6 grown men to put Noah to sleep for his operation…I’m thinking this disease doesn’t know who it’s up against! My money’s on Noah.

ABOUT THE BENEFIT

“Laughter Heals” A night of music, comedy and compassion is happening on April 14, 2010. The Celebration High School has generously donated it’s 600 seat auditorium for this amazing event. And volunteers are ready to do “Whatever we can to help Noah”.

The event starts at 7pm with a silent auction and music provided by local cover band, “Channel Z”. At 8pm the Comedy begins with Ventriloquist, Lynn Trefzger. Lynn is one of the stars of the newly released documentaries, “I’m No Dummy”. She headlines colleges, clubs and is a regular star performer on Disney’s cruise line.

Lynn shares the stage with nationally touring, award-winning headliner, Maryellen Hooper. Maryellen has been on all the late night shows including several appearances with Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show”. She’s had her own special on Comedy Central and just finished shooting her latest comedy special, “Stinky Flowers”.

All the entertainers have donated their performances for this incredibly worthy cause.
