Monday, October 8, 2001

Sean Emery will be performing at this year's Festival of Trees Premier Dinner.

The Buena Vista Regional Medical Center Auxiliary brings to you one of the funniest and most sought-after entertainers on the international market. Fast-paced and spontaneous, his performance is a charming blend of comedy plus oddball juggling and stunts. Sean Emery will perform to the Festival of Trees dinner guests Friday, Nov. 16 at 9 p.m., reservations required.

The Fourth Annual Premier Dinner kicks off the fundraising event with a 6:30 p.m. social during the lighting of the tree ceremony at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Storm Lake. Sit down to a superb five-course dinner amidst the trees on Friday, November 16.

The Festival of Trees event is the only fundraising event that members of BVRMC Auxiliary sponsor each year. Proceeds from the two-day event will be going towards the construction of a helicopter emergency landing pad at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center.

Guest at the dinner will also have the opportunity to be entertained by well-known comedian and juggler Sean Emery. Born in Ireland, Sean is the "world's tallest leprechaun." Sean grew up under the Big Top of Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus and honed his skills in the streets and stages of New York.

Now one of the more sought-after entertainers on the international market, Sean Emery's comedic interpretations embellish his consummate skills with manipulation of props of all kinds.

Sean Emery has appeared at the White House, the MTV Awards, 10 years at the Minnesota State Fair, in theaters, on TV, cruise ships, and Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey's Circus, to mention a few credits. He will perform to the Festival of Trees dinner guests at 9 p.m.
