Wenatchee Follies Event Is The Toast Of The Town
A Wenatchee tradition since 1948 will be renewed on three nights in February when nearly 150 volunteer cast members sing and dance their hearts out for a good cause--children and families in Chelan and Douglas County.
The Wenatchee Follies, a broadway style variety show is back for a four performance run at Numerica Performing Arts Center February 2-4 @ 7pm A 1pm matinee performance is scheduled Saturday, Feb. 4th. Director Jamie Donegan has recruited FatHappy for a reunion performance to open the show "Cheers To 75 Years"
The Follies performances raise money for the Wenatchee Follies Guild, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit which has raised almost $1 million for local causes since the first Follies show in 1948. Robin Hansen, Follies Guild President says the organization changed it's name a few years ago to Wenatchee Valley Follies Guild & Children's Foundation. The organization directs it's fundraising to support a youth program assistance fund, general assistance fund for families in Chelan and Douglas County and a program supporting basic needs and school enrichment efforts.
