Silent Auction and Movie The Blind Side Benefit to Help Ben Sayer Regain Health and Be Cancer-Free: Family, Friends and Loved Ones of Ben, Carrie, Logan and Paige Sayer.

  community member   < less Ben, Carrie, Logan and Paige Sayer

My husband has cancer. Ben has always put family first. He works from home so our family can be together. I am a self-employed drama coach for high school students. We have a modest income that covers usual expenses.
But we cannot bear the weight of these enormous hospital bills alone. Like millions of other Americans, our health insurance coverage begins January 1. Treatment cannot be delayed. It could mean the difference between life and death.
Please help us save Ben's life. Together we can create a miracle.
The silent auction has a huge variety of items! Examples:
-autographed UM football helmet
-backstage pass to Mojo in the Morning on radio 95.5
-original jewelry and art
-private lesson from professional pool player
& MORE!
The Blind Side is John Lee Hancock's 2009 adaptation of Michael Lewis's book about an impoverished African American teen adopted by a suburban Tennessee family who develops into one of the most highly coveted prospects in college football.

"Beethoven Lives Upstairs": Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra Family Concert Series.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Paul Pement directs this concert adaptation of the story about a 12-year-old named Christoph who grows impatient with the ruckus and uproar caused by his mom's eccentric, prickly upstairs boarder, Ludwig van Beethoven. Christoph fires off complaining letters to his music-loving uncle, whose tolerant replies eventually help the boy develop a friendship with the stormy composer. Professional actors create the play's range of characters on a simple set behind which the AASO members, led by Arie Lipsky, play snippets of the composer's overtures, sonatas, and symphonies, which are interspersed with the action. Geared toward kids age 6 & up.
4 p.m., Michigan Theater. $12 (kids, $8) in advance at the AASO office (220 E. Huron, suite 470), at a2so.com, and at the door. 994-4801. [map]
