When you have a problem, sometimes that’s the time you discover who your friends really are. From the outside, it can be an object lesson in what kind of friend you were to others and the quality and depth of your friendships.
Georgina Coleman, Director/Owner of Center Stage Dance Academy of El Dorado Hills has a lot of friends; and the friendships run deep.
Georgina was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer in May 2008. She was immediately scheduled for surgery at the beginning of June which resulted in her absence from the CSDA annual dance performance. Georgina now undergoes an intense series of chemotherapy treatments through the end of 2008.
Everyone is pulling together to keep the dance studio under full operation in her absence, with instructors stepping up to cover her classes and others ensuring the day to day business operations are handled. CSDA celebrates its 7th year in El Dorado Hills at their beautiful new location in the Safeway shopping center (2203 Francisco Drive) – with classes in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Break Dancing, Polynesian, Celtic, Theatre, Cheer & Ballroom. There really is something for everyone at CSDA.
The Stage Nine Theatre at 705 Sutter St. in Historic Folsom will hold a benefit performance of “Folsom’s Saga of Sagebrush Sal” on Thursday, August 7 at 8:00pm for Georgina Coleman.
100% of the proceeds from this benefit will assist Georgina with the multitude of medical expenses that have accumulated during her hospitalization and treatments.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $15.00 for children 12 and under. Call (916) 353-1001 to make your reservations. Seating is reserved.
Mike Jimena of Stage Nine Theatre said, “If the 8:00pm show fills up, we will add an additional performance at 6:00pm. We thank all our friends and patrons for their support and generosity.”
Free parking is available at the new Folsom Parking Facility by the Light Rail Station.
Friendship Is A Wonderful Thing.
