The first function that we did for the hospice was a nighttime event. Al Benedict was the president of MGM and his wife died of cancer, also. He said, ?How about doing this show? We'll take some of our people out and put some of your people in?? Well, I was so overwhelmed by the gesture and the offer. He said, ?Well, come over and see the show, and we'll sit together and we'll think about it.? I went and saw the show and was imaging certain people being in the show. So he took sixty people out of the show and I put sixty people in it. I have to look for the album because it's amazing. I do have an album of it. Like Hank and Barbara Greenspun were in the show; they did a number. All the bigwigs. All the women that were the ladies of Las Vegas were in the show; I mean dressed as showgirls. You've never seen anything like it. When we opened, Steve Wynn made the opening statement, ?Well, these ladies, the cast lost in excess of five hundred pounds for this show.? He named all the girls that went. I have to find that for you. That would be fun. Oh, yes. I have to find it. But he was very instrumental with the hospice, too. Did you perform in the show? No. I was the producer and that.
