About The Benefit
About The Benefit: Vernon Zmolek was a
man from Traer, Iowa who had a stroke while driving and got into an
accident. He then went into a nursing home. On April 3,
2009, while in Los Angeles, I received a phone call from my
mother. I was told a benefit was being held for Vernon Smolek on
April 18. "But what can I do?" I asked. Well, I guess it
was pretty common knowledge that I "knew people", so someone told my
Mom to ask me for autographed photos and such things from
celebrities. I said I'd do what I could, but I really didn't know
anyone would agree to it. I was surprised when the people I asked
jumped onto it so quickly, especially
in such short notice! So I'd like to thank ALL of the stars who
contributed! THANK YOU!
LOOK FOR MORE UPDATES SOON, INCLUDING PHOTOS, EVENT PROMOS, ETC.!
I, myself, was flattered when I was asked to help
out. I never before thought myself that relevant to such things,
but I've always wanted to be a part of benefits and other
fundraisers. This was my first. I didn't know Vernon
Smolek, personally, but I heard good things over the years. He
was always well-liked by the town, so I thought this was a good
cause. We small-town guys have to stick together.
All of the people I contacted are those whose work I
truly enjoy. I couldn't ask people I didn't like. Everyone
I asked is a great entertainer and I urge you to check out their work.
