We have been a guest at SHARE’s Boomtown Bash for over 35 years, and can happily report they keep getting better and better. SHARE’s mission is to improve the lives of children with special needs and some of the myriad of charities who benefit include: CASA, Ahead With Horses Team Prime Time and many others. To date, they have raised over $65 million benefitting those in need in LA!
This year, Joni Berry, an original member, who helped found them 65 years ago was honored. The show featured the stunning SHARE Ladies, the gorgeous gals performed dazzling dance routines to Broadway hits – “Chicago”, “Something Rotten” and the memorable “Guys and Dolls’. We particularly enjoyed seeing our pal, Wealth Management Specialist, September Sarno ( who raised tons of money for SHARE at her Bachelor Auctions) kick up her pretty heels. I also liked meeting former Ms. World, Corinna Fields, President of the organization – who never seems to age a year.
As a special treat, we were entertained by the Midtown Men, stars of the original “Jersey Boys” who brought the house down performing Hits of the ’60s. Some of the celebs and VIP’s and jumping with joy, incl Joana Carson, and the Hilton trio – Kathy, Paris and Nicky Hilton – A glorious group – enjoying a glorious evening indeed!

Dr. Irwin Lehrhoff– Founder and President, presided over the event and BH Mayor, John A.
