Clemente also created a vocal school for Las Vegas children as well as a talent showcase that she hosted called Rising Stars.

“Entertainment for Health” and “Laugh-a-Thon 2” Benefit @ South Point Showroom!

Shades of Sinatra will be performing THIS weekend at a very special musical-comedy benefit taking place at the South Point Hotel & Casino, located at 9777 South Las Vegas Blvd. The show will take place this Sunday, Sept. 23rd, at 2:00pm, with doors opening at 1:30 p.m.

Organized by the Lions HealthFirst Foundation, in cooperation with the South Point Hotel & Casino who donated the showroom, tickets are now on sale at the showroom Box office, with all seats one price, $25.00. Proceeds will go directly into the Foundation’s Ultrasound Health Screening program.

“Because of fund-raising activities such as this event, the ultrasound exams are free, or at a very low cost to patients who can afford to share in the cost,” James Bartel, president of the Foundation, said. “The exams pick up potentially serious medical problems, such as masses, cysts, tumors, and blockages. Our screenings give you a heads up on what’s going on inside your body.” Bartel added. “They’re painless, non-invasive and only take about 60 minutes.”

The event will include music and comedy, as well as meeting and mingling with a host of celebrities and some of Las Vegas’ most prominent medical doctors. Among the entertainers performing are: Rich Little, Gordie Brown, Leigh Zimmerman and her daughter, Cayleigh Capaldi, Lisa Smith, Shades of Sinatra, Marlon Multo, Peter Anthony, Fielding West, Bill Fayne, Genevieve, Michelle Rohl, and Kelly McDonald, who will perform and host the afternoon. Emmy Award winner, Gary Anderson, has assembled a super trio as backup for the entertainers: Billy T. on piano, Steve Flora, bass, and Ryan Rose on drums. In addition to the trio, Anderson will add three horns, and will present his famous “Lighthouse Jazz Tribute.”

For more information and to secure your tickets in advance, call the Lions Health First Foundation, 739-6393…or you can purchase tickets online HERE. Additional information on the Foundation and its ultrasound screening program can be found on the Internet at www.lionshealthfirst.org.
