Old Blue Eyes Returns To Reno – Frank Sinatra Stylist Singer Paul Salos To Perform To Find Cure For Childhood Alzheimer’s
Paul Salos, a Frank Sinatra stylist singer who made it through as a Top 10 contestant America’s Got Talent during the fall 2008 season will perform on October 3, 2009, at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada. Salos, who has been working as Frank Sinatra stylist for approximately 40 years, will join Nevada Entertainer of the Year and ICONMAN musical impressionist Greg London along with 5-year old singing sensation Kaitlyn Maher.
The three outstanding vocal entertainers will perform at a fundrasing event to support The Addi and Cassi Hempel Fund and together will bring a voice to children who have lost theirs from a fatal illness called Niemann Pick Type C, or “Childhood Alzheimer’s.” Salos’ natural vocal impression of Frank Sinatra has won the hearts of America and his appearance at “An Evening of Stars” will surely be a highlight.
Here’s what the blogs have to say about Salos:
Old Blue Eyes is back!
Wow, this guy sounds exactly like Frank Sinatra!
He has an absolutely brilliant stage presence and the late Sinatra himself is handling his applause from above I’m sure!
What a smile to go along with the voice
3 1/2 cups organic vegetable broth
1 1/2-ounce package dried porcini mushrooms*
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
12 ounces assorted wild mushrooms (such as crimini and stemmed shiitake), sliced
8 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried
4 teaspoons all purpose flour
2 cups soy milk
1/4 cup of cooking sherry (optional)
Bring broth to boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Add porcini mushrooms to saucepan; let soak until mushrooms soften, about 20 minutes. Drain, reserving broth but discarding any sediment in broth. Coarsely chop porcini mushrooms.
Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add chopped onions and sauté until tender, about 7 minutes. Add wild mushrooms and button mushrooms and sauté until brown and tender, about 8 minutes. Add minced garlic, thyme, and porcini and sauté 2 minutes. Sprinkle flour over; stir 1 minute. Gradually whisk in reserved porcini soaking liquid and soy milk. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium and boil gently until soup thickens slightly, about 12 minutes. Transfer 1 1/2 cups soup to blender and puree until smooth. Return to pot. Bring soup to simmer. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into bowls and serve. Servings: Makes 4 servings
* Dried porcini mushrooms are sold at Italian markets, Trader Joe’s, specialty foods stores and many supermarkets.
Biggest Little Community In The World Supports Finding Cure
Reno, Nevada, may be known as the “Biggest Little City in the World,” but the City also has the title of the “Biggest Little Community in the World.” Since our identical twin 4 year old twins, Addi and Cassi, received a devastating medical diagnosis of Niemann Pick Type C — otherwise known as “Childhood Alzheimer’s (featured on ABC’s Good Morning America) – we have received an outpouring of support from the Reno community to help us fight this fatal disease that robs children of their ability to walk, talk and eat. On May 10th, 2008, the Reno community came together for the “Moonlight Garden Gala – A Night Of Hope and Miracles” at the Downtown Reno Ballroom to help raise money for research into this devastating and mysterious brain disorder. Millions of American’s are facing Alzheimer’s disease and every 71 seconds someone in America develops the disease. NPC children like Addi and Cassi may hold important clues to helping researchers understand brain disorders of all types. No person, whether young or old, should face death of the mind before death of the body and treatments and cures need to be developed. Here are some of the amazing events that have taken place in recent weeks in Reno to help raise money and awareness of brain disorders and "Childhood Alzheimers."
- Claim Jumper Fundraiser: On April 24th, Claim Jumper hosted an evening to raise money for the Addi and Cassi Fund with 10% of all proceeds earned that evening going to the fund. Thanks to Cara Hamm for organizing the event — we raised $2,358.33!
- Sierra Strength and Speed: Joe Dibble, one of Nevada’s leading dietitians and nutritionists, donated 100% of the proceeds from “Wednesday’s Workout Evening” at the WB Baseball Softball Training Center. Everyone worked up a sweat, including Addi and Cassi, and Joe and his volunteers helped raise $1,345.00!
- On Thursday, May 8, 2008, Bishop Manogue Catholic High School held a "Miracle Minute" to raise funds to aid in the research necessary to find a cure for Niemann Pick Type C.
- CureCaps party – Jennifer Dolder and her two children organized a CureCaps hat making party at their house – over 50 caps were made to help raise money for research
