If you have met Lester Jenkins Wilson, you can attest to the fact that he is one of the nicest, caring, loyal and devoted people you will EVER meet.

His love and talent for theater has lead him to devote his life to so many theater companies on the Central Coast.  He gives freely and generously of both his time and talent.  Every person who has ever been worked with Lester has been touched by his generosity both on and off the stage.   

He labors daily at Ross, lugging around boxes and sorting apparel at 5AM so that he can have his evenings free to volunteer his time with his first love, theater. 

Every year Lester plans a trip to New York City so that he can immerse himself in the thing that he loves the most – seeing live theater on Broadway.  Unfortunately, this year he has had some recent unforeseen financial outlays that have exhausted the funds that he had saved for this trip.

As his birthday is fast approaching on August 27th  I thought the best way each of us could show our appreciation for all he has done would be to pool our resources to send him to New York City so he can fill his soul with the magic that is Broadway.   It would be so amazing to be able to send him on the trip he deserves in October so, he can come back to the Central Coast re-energized for all his  future theatrical commitments.  This trip will include travel and as many tickets as we can purchase.

Everyone who contributes  will be  listed on the card that he  will receive on Wednesday, August 27th, at Pappy McGregors from 5 – 8PM.  I hope you will join in the Celebration!
