Auxiliary Unit 28 dinner show spurs a variety of laughter

MILLSBORO – Laughter and entertainment was staged in a variety of ways Sunday evening at American Legion Post 28.

Soloists, duets, groups and acts of magic and ventriloquism took center-stage during American Legion Auxiliary Unit 28’s annual Variety Show.

The dinner/show event, which played to a packed house, raised $3,000 for the Auxiliary Emergency Fund. The substantial donation will benefit those impacted by storms and other disasters.

Magician Randy Forster, who performs regularly at the Dickens Parlour Theater in Millville, wowed the crowd with several magic acts.

The closing stage act featured the popular ventriloquist tag-team: Ken Huff & Mr. Goodwood. They drew endless laughs, and Mr. Goodwood even managed to schmooze a smooch from show emcee Tina Washington, who earlier in the show had paired with Karen Marvel in a Department of Delaware Officers’ performance of “Ebony & Ivory.”

Disc jockey John Miller of Altimate Entertainment provided music and karaoke backdrop. At the request of the audience he also took the microphone for two songs.

There was a total of 15 acts.

“A heartfelt thank you to everyone who showed up for our benefit for the Auxiliary Emergency Fund. You rock!” Ms. Washington stated in a Facebook post.
