Salute Pizza Party at Arlington Park

With our 8th Annual Salute Inc. (wwww.saluteinc.org) Pizza party having grown to over 550 guests we had to move the fund raiser next door to Arlington Park from Trackside on February the 17th. I felt I was more of the director/producer with such a full schedule. I was in my element. Full set up with 4 speaker sound, 3 mike stands, lavalier microphone and karaoke. It was a power packed lineup beginning with The Wise Guys (www.the wizeguys.com) a harmonizing vocal group singing tunes from the 50’s-70’s, The National Anthem with our own amazing Torran Crawford, the lovely Bonnie Greene from US99 announcing, speeches from many including Arlington Height’s Mayor Mulder who was “sawed in half” by Magician Mark Kasthube (of www.GrandDentalGroup.com), and former White Sox’s Ron Kittle and Mike Huff. Karaoke concluded the night with great participation from both young & old. Delicious pizza provided by Wa-Pa-Ghetti’s Pizza (www.wapaghettispizza.com). Special thanks in working with Events Manager Lauren Schaal of Arlinghton Park (arlingtonpark.com) who was most helpful and with the fine folks of the Levy Restaurants (www.levyrestaurants.com). It is always a joy to work with Salute, Inc. in raising funds for needy families of veterans in Illinois, with over $30,000 raised on the 17th. Will & Marybeth Beiersdorf have had the vision, energy, passion and leadership to lead this wonderful organization. We have been with them from the very beginning and are looking forward to providing great music for the 9th straight year in May at the Memorial 5K run in Arlington Heights.
