“Oh! What a Night!”
The Share the Care Ball on October 23rd was renamed “Sharing the Care with a Twist” and was held in spectacular fashion online.
The Twist was that it was virtual, but the 50’s event definitely took the twist to a new level with martini recipes, 50’s music led by the amazing Ken Arlen and the Evolution Orchestra and a spectacular appearance by the Jersey Boys “Oh What a Night” group. The evening was complete with host Janet Davies (ABC7) and cameos from Steve Cochran (WGN) and Sasha Farber (Dancing with the Stars), with segments from our wonderful organizing committee led by Terri Danko and Jen Horsley entertaining the very generous 110 registrants and raising almost $100,000!!! Karin Prangley and Jen Horsley provided some of the evening most memorable and fun segments, and there were heartfelt and poignant videos from Almost Home Kids.
