Wonderful cast for a great cause!
I can't go. I have bowling that night.
Jason Brown and the Shibutains have just been added to the cast.
Love the cause! And kudos to all those that are participating, be it on the ice or in the audience.
Wish I was nearer to go ! Great cause and the cast is really great !!!
My bowling team agreed to pre-bowl, so I'm going! Whee!
how was it ?
Very good. For me, the hit of the show was Elijah Balde, followed by Jason Brown, but everyone was great.
Here's an article with pictures.
Frenchie Skate 2014
Frenchie Skate 2014 was a great show. It was a charitable fundraiser for NorthStar Reach - a summer camp scheduled to open next year for seriously ill children who would otherwise never get the opportunity. Medical personnel will be on site at the camp to assist the kids and their families. Georgia Glastris, a Junior at University of Michigan organized the event and all the skaters in the show volunteered their time and travel to help with this worthy cause.

If you were involved, Turbo-Mom, please pass on my congratulations for a well run event. I hope they raised quite a bit from it.
Thank you sk8er1964, my bad.
Have a good day. Hope it is nice and sunny where you are at.
What did everyone skate to?
Loved reading the article and comments (thanks for posting).
Now just looking for some vids to watch.
I was there for only the 2nd half of the show, spied Punsalan and Swallow and their kids during intermission. Here are some videos: some are entire performances, others are short clips.
Weaver and Poje's SD
Video of skaters at end
Jason Brown did his U Can't Touch This exhibition, wearing a Michigan jersey, I think...? Michael Buckley said something about him arriving straight from the airport and not getting a chance to warm-up.
6-8 inches of snow expected tonight. Whee!!!!
Most did show/exhibition numbers. Weaver/Poje and Aldridge/Eaton did their short dance.
Yes. Basketball - which is rather fitting considering Michigan had just clinched the Big 10 title.
