Special promotions part of THELMA’s virtual telethon October 30

Thelma Sadoff Center of the Arts (THELMA) announced several special promotions as part of the Virtual Telethon – THELMA Style, an event held in place of the in-person fundraiser Windy Dinner THELMA Style.

“Our annual fundraiser is always fun and we are working to bring that fun to your home. Some promotions you can take advantage of now and some on the evening of the telethon October 30,” said Jacqui Corsi, THELMA’s Executive Director.

The telethon includes live music with Eva and the Swizzle Sticks, an auction, plus a mix of live action and pre-recorded videos with some of THELMA’s favorite artists, sponsors and supporters.

The music lineup includes performances by Jimmy Voegeli of The Jimmys, Ben Majeska of Armchair Boogie, Danny and Michelle Jerabek of Copper Box, the WhiskeyBelles and a special guest star.

THELMA is encouraging watch parties

The first five people who contact us who are hosting their own watch party the evening of October 30 will get a private performance by Eva and Swizzle Sticks. The band (made up of mostly the Thelen family) will Zoom into your watch party between 6 pm and 6:45 pm and perform one song for your party. Call THELMA during regular business hours at 920.921.5410 to be one of the lucky parties.
