    How great of JoJo to host and help organize this show after all the work she put into her recent show in NJ. She always impresses me with her class and graciousness.

    I hope that the organization staging this benefit is in good standing with the IRS & that proceeds go to the announced cause. Sorry but after the Stars, Stripes, Skates fiasco...hard to not think about such things. I'm sure that 99% of such charitable shows pass muster with the IRS.

    It's not being organized by a charitable organization, so no worries there.

    Nice lineup - hope FSWer sees this - I think it's his home rink.
