Mott Children's Hospital of Ann Arbor and other pediatric healthcare institutions.

    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.

    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.

    Alissa Czisny
    Shibutanis
    Weaver and Poje's SD
    Jeremy Abbott
    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.

    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.
