Silent auction, dinner, awards and entertainment!
Deanna Bogart will be entertaining you with Blues, R&B, Boogie and more on her piano and sax!
When it comes to Deanna Bogart, everyone wants to claim her as their own -- her hometown, her fans, her fellow musicians and even her instruments.  She's that good - and that good-natured!  
Born in Detroit, Deanna spent her early years climbing onto any available piano bench.  Around the age of six, she was "gently removed" from the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music for playinig piano by ear instead of learning to read music.  While in middle school, Deanna yearned to play the saxophone.  Typical of those times though, she was told, "Girls play the clarinet, not the sax."  Thankfully for us all, that tide has changed.  

Today Deanna Bogart is an award winning multi-instrumentalist and multifaceted musician whose fans value the diversity of her genre-free zone.  As a band leader/singer/songwriter/producer/pianist/sax player, Deanna combines the best of boogie-woogie, contemporary blues, country and jazz into a spendid blend she calls "blusion."

Deanna's fusion of blusion -- spontaneous, sophisticated, fearless and fun -- has garnered her three consecutive Blues Music Awards' Horn Instrumentalist of the Year for 2008, 2009 and 2010.  She has won, at last count, more than 20 Whammies, the music awards for the hotly contested Washington, DC region.

Your emcee for the evening is REDD AIMES!  The popular and sought after host and promoter from Zelda's Nightclub in Palm Springs.  Redd originally hails from Puerto Rico, but spent most of his childhood in Texas.  A former Marine that served for 6 years and was deployed twice, Redd is a proud husband and father to 6 kids.  He is honored to be serving as the emcee for the 10th Anniversary Light of Hope Awards Gala

What a terrific event, that will be even better as we recognize the volunteers, community members and law enforcement that have made a difference in all of our lives.

Don't miss your chance to start the season off right!
