It’s good that not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Case in point: the Scintas ("Buffalo’s First Family of Music") and entertainer Clint Holmes are well-known for their Vegas shows, but once again they are coming home to help others.
But before they appear on the 50th annual Variety Kids Telethon, airing Sunday (March 25) on Channel 7, you can catch them live during the seventh annual "A Salute to the Kids" benefit concert at 7 p.m. today (March 24) in the Riviera Theatre (67 Webster St., North Tonawanda). Expect plenty of great music and entertainment from the Scintas (brothers Joe and Frank, sister Chrissi and that "Irish Scinta" Peter O’Donnell); Holmes, whose hit "Playground in My Mind" remains a crowd pleaser; Terry Buchwald performing the music of Elvis; and an appearance by Mr. Food.
Here’s an extra-special treat: the Channel 7 broadcasting team of Irv Weinstein, Rick Azar and Tom Jolls are reuniting for the event. Bring your autograph book.
Doors open at 6 p.m. today. Tickets are $20; call 854-7577 or visit www.varietykidstelethon.com to learn more.
