The Central Coast Follies show "World Tour 2010"


“Follies World Tour” proudly donates $28,000 in their Eighth Annual Benefit for Parkinson's Research

The Central Coast Follies Eighth Annual Benefit for Parkinson’s Research on October 7,8,9 and10th of 2010 was another musical extravaganza with overwhelming audience and community support.   The theme of the show was “Follies World Tour” and the cast of 81 dancers, singers, children and aerial dancing took the audience on a magical, musical world tour highlighting many countries in song and dance.  

Only at the Central Coast “Follies World Tour” could you go on a tour around the world without packing a suitcase or enduring a long airplane ride, get to see a fun show full of music & dance, buy opportunity tickets to win great prizes and all for the bargain price of a $20 theatre ticket.  And at the same time be apart of a team helping to raise money for Parkinson Research---”.

This World Tour was full of non-stop fun, adventure, Follies and guest dancers, penguins, ostriches, and a Kangaroo,  great local singers, talented children and outstanding costumes, by designer Randal Sumabat.   Every year the award winning Director/Choreographer Jason Sumabat creates an outstandingly diverse and entertaining work of art using the talents of local performers, proving once again that wonderful local talent exists in California’s Central Coast.

Our sponsors, donors, advertisers and audience support have all been faithful and supportive through the years as they realize we are working hard to help the millions of people suffering with Parkinson disease.  We sincerely believe that by funding research now is caring for the future of our people and that is what the Follies show each year is all about.   We are proud to be a part of The Parkinson Alliance Team with our $28,000 donation this year.   In the past eight years we have donated $187,000 to The Parkinson Alliance where 100% goes for research because of the Tuchman Foundation matching fund.  Together we all make a difference in the lives of millions of people who are suffering with Parkinson’s.
