Dental Health Theater and Channel 5 Need Homeschoolers’ Help TOMORROW! (Wednesday)

Hi Homeschoolers!
Cathy Mullins just received a call from The Delta Dental Health Theater and they are desperate for our help.  Every year they host a Candy Exchange on the day after Halloween.  This year it is held at Vetta Soccerdome.  Channel 5 would like to do a segment on this BUT they want to film it tomorrow (Wednesday) so that they can air it on Thursday.  The problem is that they don’t know where to get any children since they are all in school.  So they thought of homeschoolers.  Here’s what the program coordinator, Alice Davis, wrote:

Have you ever wanted your child to be on TELEVISION?  Or, does your child love to bounce and slide?

The Delta Dental Health Theatre is being featured on NewsChannel 5 to promote the 4th Annual Great Candy Exchange.   We need children to be filmed while Theatre Staff discusses the Candy Exchange.  This is an AWESOME opportunity for the Theatre and we hope you can help.
Date:               Wednesday,  October 30, 2013
Where:            Vetta Soccerdome – 220 East Ave., St. Louis, MO 63119
Time:               1:30 pm
Please email or  ASAP if you can attend.
She also wanted me to invite all the homeschoolers to the actual Candy Exchange that will take place on Friday, November 1 (after school)….it all sounds like great fun!  SEE BELOW.

If you would like to help them out tomorrow, please respond to Alice at her email above.  Note: You will probably have to sign some kind of release form saying that you allow Channel 5 to film your child. I think it is safe and the candy goes to our troops!
