To most people, red and green, symbolize the holiday season, however the Pemberville Hot Flashes will have audiences feeling “in the pink” at a holiday music extravaganza Dec. 18 at 3:30 p.m. at Riverview Banquet Center in Pemberville.
Proceeds raised from the concert will benefit the local Christmas Angel Tree Project, which supports families in need during this holiday season.
The Hot Flashes – a group of “young-at-heart” women from the Pemberville area, traditionally sing ‘50s and ‘60s doo wop, but the special “A Hot Pink Christmas” program will feature a variety of holiday songs including “Santa Baby,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Rockin'’ Around The Christmas Tree,” “Merry Christmas Darling” and more. The concert will also feature a special “husbands’” number, a carol sing-along and a visit from Santa. A silent auction and refreshments will round out the 90-minute program.
The Hot Flashes, formed approximately three years ago by Trudy Davies, is comprised of 14 women, 13 of whom are in their mid-50s and older.
“We practice one to two time weekly and perform approximately four times per month around the area,” according to member Carol Bailey. “We are very popular with the 40- and 50-year class reunions crowd and stay quite busy with car shows as well.
“We are planning special costumes for our Christmas show, but we usually wear capris, and hot pink bowling shirts, saddle shoes, etc. and we have a lot of fun,” she added.
“With the need being so great, it is the Hot Flashes desire to help the Angel Tree Project meet these needs the best way we can. There are currently 42 families in the area that are in need, which includes at least 100 children,” Bailey said. “Our thoughts were to present a benefit to raise funds to help offset the costs associated with the effort.”
Among the silent auction prizes are an Amish Basket, Princess Basket, a Relaxation Package with massage and more, a long weekend package at a Naples, Fla. Condo, a yearlong family membership to Schedel Arboretum and Gardens, a children’s birthday party package complete with a clown, a facial rejuvenation package and more.
