Last year they hosted a Masquerade ball and casino night fundraiser at the Sir Tyler Terraces in Wilmington. Amanda was the emcee and participated in the fun by attempting to play a few casino games. The event was to raise money for the community boys and girls clubs across the area in New Hanover County. More than a hundred people came out to show their support dressed in their best.

I had a blast reading the Polar Express book to the kiddos as they waited anxiously to meet Santa in Downtown Wilmington. There were more than a dozen kids, there ages include 3 to 12 years old. The backdrop of the Train with the conductor and Santa made it a special reading that the kids loved! I also got a chance to take photos with some of the kids I read too.
The readings take place the week before Christmas each year and my station WWAY is proud to sponsor readers from our on-air team.
