Kudos to Paul Wylie and Emily Hughes for their commitment to this show. Even being a host is a significant commitment and they've both been very dedicated to it for many years.

Thanks also to all the skaters and volunteers who give of their time and talents for a worthy cause.

I've gone the past few years (they have cheap/free tickets) but can't go now that it's in sept and it's my busy season at work. I know some of the skaters in the show so wish I could go to support them! Also their segment with the Protopopov's makes me cry every time

We've decided not to go :( Expected high temperature today is 87 degrees. DH and I are too old to do our customary subway and walking trip in such hot weather. The ice is going to be horrible. This used to be a fall show, when the warmest weather would be about 70, and usually cooler than that.

There is a bus stop right across the street if that's any help! Ice is actually good from my friends who are there rn.

He and Gabbie Izzo performed to what looked like a fun program to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (saw a clip of the beginning).
