What a fantastic event on Sunday at Catalina Bar and Grill, Los Angeles! I enjoyed sharing the stage with Antonia Bennett, Kiki Ebsen, Mark Winkler, Cheryl Bentyne of the Manhattan Transfer and many other fantastic performers in a fundraiser for weSPARK Cancer Support Center. weSPARK is an organization offering free integrative therapies, support groups and creative/educational workshops to all those whose lives have been affected by cancer.
Kudos to Jackie Gibson, Cathy Segal-Garcia and Gary Brumburgh along with Jazz del Corazon and Human Connection for a stellar event! There was hardly anyone in attendance whose life hadn’t been touched by cancer in some way and there was a palpable atmosphere of support and love along with a general feeling of celebrating life.
Meet Yäger, weSPARK mascot! Sure hope there was enough in the budget for an extra treat for this special little guy!
A particular highlight was a visit to the weSPARK facilities the following day for a firsthand look at the facility and the incredible services they provide.
Another treat was having a chance to duet with organizer Gary Brumburgh, a good friend and past recipient of weSPARK services. He tells the funny story of how we met and why this was the song we had to sing!
