We can all recognize the tragedy of the situation in Orlando and as we confront our feelings the one thing that comes to the front of the confusion is our concern and care for those in the area. Before we make statements and express our undoubted anger, please use this time to help by contributing to one of the many blood donation sites set up throughout the Orlando and Tampa/St.Pete areas. There are also sites set up to assist with financial needs inccured by the families of victims. As always, be certain of the organization before you donate. This would be the best and most immediate way to help our friends and neighbors in need. We have included the official sites as released by local news sources. Use this time to lean on each other and offer support.

The thought process behind community night originated with the idea of “A Night Without Competition”. We have all seen it or experienced it before, after an amazing run a group of performers full of excitement and pride can quickly change to disappointment over a number or a placement. An evening like this assures, we are all there for one reason… to entertain!
