Wow, what a month. So much has been happening that it is just zooming by. I was one of the judges for the Miss Summerlin/Miss Henderson Pageants. I was in a Golf Tournament at Canyon Gate Country Club to raise money for Safe Nest, an organization that helps women and children in need.
I joined Cherrisse Goedhart, Janie Bradford, Freda Payne, Claudette Robinson, Hank Dixon, Scherrie Payne, Marilyn Mc Leod, Raynard Milner, Miller London and more who attended the Heroes and Legends, Evening with the Stars, Charity Reception, a fundraiser for talented young people.
Last week I met with Aleta Mc Cormick, founder of Omni-Equus, specializing in the treatment and rehabilitation of equine athletes, Don Hoglund, DVM, author of Nobody's Horses: The Dramatic Rescue of the Wild Herd of White Sands and Robert Miller, world renowned speaker and author on Horse Behavior and Natural Horsemanship, Ron Wechsler, Joan Waldman along with others to discuss the 'Preservation of the Free Roaming Horse'.
As I said, busy month! Many of you know I planned to do a summer tour this year after the release of my new cd. In preparation for it I was in dance classes and rehearsals. In April I started working out with a new trainer and pulled a calf muscle, which meant I had to take 6 weeks off to let it fully heal. This put a big 'dent' in my plans.
Currently Recording A Series of “Session Projects” With Top Musicians In Cities Around The U.S., The Former Miss Nevada Is Sponsoring A Participant In Nashville’s Team Rio Walk-Run, Which Raises Money For Big Brothers Big Sisters Of Middle Tennessee
While most of Sandy Kastel’s professional and charitable activities are based in her hometown of Las Vegas, the popular performer and recording artist also has a heart for Nashville, where she has spent much of her time co-writing with other songwriters over the past several years.
The former Miss Nevada (www.sandykastel.com) is sponsoring her friend and real estate agent Holly White, who is a part of Team Rio (www.teamrio.org), a Nashville based Walking/Running organization that is currently celebrating its fifth anniversary raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. Team Rio will have over 150 runners/walkers training with a purpose for the 2009 Country Music Marathon and Half Marathon.
If I was on the front of Fashion Icon Magazine today this is what the article might say (IF it was written by a reporter who really cares what I think and IF it was a favorable article...and that's a lot of 'ifs'). So, here goes....
Sandy Kastel attended the final performance of the Follies Bergere Show at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last night. As usual she was 'dressed to the nines' for the special occasion wearing Dolce Gabanna, Louboutin shoes and carrying a Prada bag. She stepped onto the stage with the alumni of performers who have worked with Jerry Jackson for over the past three decades. The event was the closing of the Follies, which ended it's 49th year run.
When asked by Fox 5 what she thought of the show closing, Sandy said, "I feel it is a continuing trend, which marks the end of an era for Las Vegas. This town is constantly upgrading it's image. It's sad on one hand because this December would have been the 50th anniversary of the show and the new owners could have drawn out the celebration over the next 6 months. It would have brought a lot of new blood into their hotel with all the attention. But It is also a sign of the times. Las Vegas is always reinventing itself and in order to do that some things have to go so that new shows can come into the market. The Follies represents one of the traditions of Las Vegas, bringing beautiful women from all over the world, originating in Paris."
