Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce three of the 13 participants in September’s “Glamorous Gams” benefit for the Children’s Center.
We have former La Center City Councilor Troy Van Dinter
Clark County Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tonya Rulli
And Vancouver City Councilor Bart Hansen
Yes, that’s right, for the Sept. 29 benefit at the Hilton Vancouver, participants will dress in character and compete to raise the most money. Other brave souls include Gary Bock as Poseidon, Brett Bryant as Gladiator, Cora Chandler as Tomb Raider, Bob Dingethal as Battling Bog, Lee Hazelton as Elvis, Patrick Lamb as a Portland Timbers soccer player, Sherri McMillan as Tina Turner, Ali Novinger as Pretty Woman, Kelly Parker as Rita Hayworth and Kristy Weaver as Mae West.
We’re sure McMillan, owner of Northwest Personal Training, can pull off Tina Turner. But can Boy Scout really transform into Braveheart?
Competitors aren’t waiting until September to start raising money, though. Ol’ Twinkle Toes Flintstone has a charity bowling tournament, 10:30 a.m. July 22 at Big Al’s. For more information go here. You’ll also find information about another Flintstone event, a Britnee Kellogg concert at Three Brothers Winery, 5 p.m. Aug. 12. For links to all the events, go here.
