Creston’s GoGo Grannies hosting A Funtastic Variety Show

Web Lead

Ready. Set. Go! That’s Go as in GoGo Grannies, that tireless group of women (with help from the occasional — and very lucky — man) who are sponsoring A Funtastic Variety Show on Saturday.

With special appearances from Elvis Presley and Stompin’ Tom (or their look- and sound-alikes) the show promises to be fun for the whole family.

The Go Go Grannies raises funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation for its Grandmothers Campaign. African grandmothers have stepped forward to care for millions of children orphaned by AIDS, with sometimes as many as 10-15 children in one household. They display astonishing reserves of love, courage and emotional resistance, even while grieving the loss of their own adult children.

“This is a very serious issue, but we have lots of fun raising money to support it,” says organizer Barb Archibald.

Tickets for the variety show are $15, available at Black Bear Books, Creston Card and Stationery and at the door. Doors at the Prince Charles Theatre open at 7 p.m. and showtime is 7:30.
