Fifties Fun To Raise Funds for People with Disabilities

January 20, 2010 (GOLDSBORO, NC) – “Memories of the 50’s,” a musical production and fundraiser for RHA Howell, Inc.’s Walnut Creek Center in Goldsboro, will be presented Saturday, January 30, at 7:30 p.m. at Wayne Community College. 

The entire cast of 10 singers and dancers, along with the “Sugarfoot Shag Club,” are donating their time free of charge to raise money to support the services provided at the Walnut Creek Center. They will be dressed in 1950s costumes — including Poodle skirts — and will perform on a vintage ‘50s “soda shop set.”

The Walnut Creek Center, owned and operated by RHA Howell, Inc., is an Intermediate Care Facilities for the Mentally Retarded (ICF/MR) serving children and adults with multiple disabilities.

Carlton and Renee Hinson of RJH Productions in Goldsboro produce several fundraising benefits throughout the year, including “Memories of the 50’s.”

“We just wanted to give back to our community,” said Renee Hinson, “so we came up with a way to have fun doing it.”

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Seating is limited so strongly advance tickets are recommended. To reserve tickets, call Renee Hinson at 919-689-9726 or email her at
