The 2010 Michael Weiss Foundation fund-raising show will take place at 5 PM on Sunday, October 24, in Arlington, Virginia. The show will be preceded by a silent auction that usually includes--among other things--a lot of autographed skating memorabilia. The show location, Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Ballston, is accessible on foot from the Ballston Metro station, making it convenient for many locals and anyone flying into Reagan National Airport or taking Amtrak to DC's Union Station.

The cast normally includes some of Michael's SOI cast mates as well as younger up-and-comers supported by Foundation training scholarships. A partial cast list (subject to change) has been announced: Brian Boitano, Michael Weiss, Jennifer Robinson, John Zimmerman, Silvia Fontana, Christina Gao, Sinead and John Kerr, Dan Hollander, and Nathan Chen. What a great opportunity for East Coasters to see Chen and Gao, who don't train in our area!

Ticket prices begin at $30. On-ice seating is $50. There's a service charge of $4.75 per ticket, I think.

We normally go to this, but due to a family event, will have to miss it this year. :( I wish it took place one day earlier!

I wish it was being held a day earlier, too! But I'll still most likely attend anyway. I really enjoyed the past two years' shows. :)

I've been to two of the shows and really enjoyed both. He always has a nice mix of high quality pros and promising younger skaters. It's wonderful of the skaters to donate their time for a great cause, and Michael does a good job of organizing everything. If anyone can attend, I highly recommend it. It's hard to find a more fun way to support young skaters.

A recent email also indicated Ryan Bradley was added to the cast which is a great addition.

I was listening to WTOP News Radio yesterday and they had a little feature on the show! I thought that was really cool.

OK - here's the updated list of performers as of 10/19 - I think it's a safe bet that they will all be there on Sunday (10/24)....
Emmanuel Savary
Mary Kate Mulera ( young, talented local skater, I think)
Nathan Chen
Nicolette House and Aidas Reklys
Ryan Bradley
Jennifer Robinson
Dan Hollander
Rockne Brubaker and Mary Beth Marley
Christina Gao
Sinead & John Kerr
Ilia Kulik
Kimmie Meissner
Brian Boitano
Capitol Steps Synchro Team
Michael Weiss

Still good seats left, but at this point you have to buy them in person (to late for online purchases). I'll be down by the on-ice seating door again trying to keep things safe - stop by and say howdy!

Thanks for the updated cast list with the addition of Marley/Brubaker.

Here's another article (includes a photo of Weiss posing with Mary-Kate Mulera, age 9, who competed at the Juvenile level at South Atlantic Regionals last weekend): http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/20/AR2010102006006.html

Todd will not be at Mike's show this year.
