Michael Childers did it again! For 90 minutes his “Icons & Idols” show and benefit dazzled a 700+ person audience at the Richards Center for Arts. The recent non-profit recipient of Childers’ talent was The Foundation of the Palm Springs Unified School District, specifically benefiting one of Childers’ personal passions, providing music opportunities for young students in public schools.
As he does with the well-known fundraiser, “One Night Only”, Childers used his time, extensive entertainment connections, and talent in creating what is sure to become a must-attend fundraiser. With tickets starting at $75, the show was a bargain and supported an important cause.
Childers enlisted some high-powered help from friends too, with Palm Springs local mega-event producer Frank Goldstin of Momentous Events and the brilliant Todd Schroeder as Music Director. Musical author and New York Times contributor James Gavin wrote the highly entertaining script for the evening and served as the evening’s host.
Also making the evening a huge success were Event Ambassadors Doug Donenfeld, Debbie Green, Barbara Keller, Terri Ketover, Ann Sheffer, and Tom Truhe.
