Jim Marsh and the Skyline Casino have agreed to sponsor the fundraiser that Grant Griffin, The Showbiz Society, and local entertainers are producing on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010, at the Las Vegas Rocks Café from 2 to 4 p.m. to aid fellow performer Jeneane Marie with medical costs. Marsh will also match the monies collected up to $6,000.
For more than 30 years, Marie has been giving to Las Vegas through her wonderful personality and talent. Besides doing her own show, Marie has been the opening act for Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Don Rickles and toured with Wayne Newton, and The Funk Bros, to name just a few. She has guest starred in countless shows and was once considered the “Queen of Las Vegas.”
An endless array of stars will be preforming: Steve Rossi, Sonny Turner, Babe Pier, Denise Clemente, Tony Sacca, Paris Red, Herb Rawlings, Lani Misaulcha, Bill Fayne, Laurie Cook, Laurie Caceres, Gray Anderson, Steve Connolly as Elvis, Grant Griffin and the Gary Anderson Band.
Marie now needs the community’s support and assistance from her public and fellow thespians. Marie has Avascular Necrosis – Hip Replacement because her groin area has no blood flow. In constant pain, her hip has degenerated and she is subject to blood clots. Ultimately, surgery is a must and she has no medical insurance or money.
Marie will be on hand at the fundraiser on crutches or in a wheel chair to meet every one and express her gratitude and thanks.
At the door, admission is $22, which includes a three-hour parking pass. Additional donations are encouraged and welcome.
The Las Vegas Rocks Café is located at 450 Fremont Street downtown at Neonopolis on the northwest corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Fremont Street. There’s easy access validated parking on Fourth Street between Fremont Street and Ogden in the underground Neonopolis Parking Garage. The café’s phone number is 702-227-5872 (LVRC).
