Been There, Done That - Was a Great Success!!!
There are not enough words to say thank you to Donna Trammell and her incredibly gifted fellow singers, pianist and stage manager who entertained us last night with hilarious songs and antics. Our fabulous community of supporters responded with a standing ovation. Thank you to the Denton City Federation of Women’s Club for the “groovy” decorations and use of their wonderful facility. Thank you also to Lantana Country Club, Meltzer’s, Greenhouse Restaurant, Hannah’s Off
the Square, Ravelin, Leslie Hinzman and Claire Nieswiadomy for the delicious food and beverages.
As the Monsignor King Outreach Center transitions to a fulltime evening shelter with an enhanced program to help some of the most vulnerable in our society become self-sufficient, we look forward to seeing you at the shelter and future fundraisers.
Thank you again to everyone who performed, attended, decorated, donated or helped to make the evening a success. Here are a few pictures from the event.
We invite you to join us during this holiday season for a very special show! “Fireside Footlights – A Holiday Celebration from the Campus” will be a fabulous virtual event offered on-line by Theatre Denton. Showcasing the talented Donna Trammell Group, this variety show will feature comedy, holiday memories, crafts, recipes, music galore, and all the fun and joy of holiday celebrations, both at home and abroad.
You are invited to relax in your own cozy living room while you enjoy this presentation. During the evening’s free 2-hour presentation, you’ll be offered a chance to donate to The Junction (the new organization created from the merging of Monsignor King Outreach Center & Our Daily Bread). Your gift will support our on-going efforts to feed and house our homeless and hungry neighbors. Donation options and instructions will be shared during the show and on the website, footlightsdenton.com.
“Fireside Footlights” premieres Saturday, December 12 at 7:30pm and then will be available for viewing throughout the rest of the month.
We sincerely hope you and your family enjoy this delightfully cozy and merry event and that you will consider a donation to The Junction during this season of giving. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity. We wish you the happiest, healthiest holiday season!
