The Brenda B Show Comedy Show Fundraiser at Studio67 @ Studio67
Jul 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Help raise funds with some laughs, music and comedy performance by the Brenda B Show! Tickets are $30 and seating is limited to 50.
BYOB and food as the venue permits outside food and alcoholic beverages.

About the artists & show: 

Brenda and Deems started two years ago as a combination of fun and musical excitement fund raiser band named the DB5 that played multi genres of music to help the veterans of Coatesville Veterans Hospital.

Deems Palmer is a 40 year veteran who led the band and dancers were employed for all fund raisers with additional special guest artists.

Although COVID hit and devastated the economy, that did not stop Brenda Bianchi and Deems Palmer from wanting to spread some happiness and hope to eager audiences even though we were all confined to our houses. Brenda came up with the idea for the Brenda B Show.

The Brenda B Show started as a show featuring a combination of dance, all types of music, comedy routines along with jokes.

The show evolved towards rock songs, pop songs, classic Motown and songs of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s as well as country music. Brenda and Deems brought her audiences fun facts and history about the artist and their music as well as fun facts in that day in Pop Culture added some humor and a super positive energy to each show.

Proceeds from this show will benefit Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge.

“Partners in the Pines” Medford Lakes Canoe Carnival @ Medford Lakes
Aug 6 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Two Medford local non-profits working together to better the community!

The Medford Lakes Lions Club (MLLC) is teaming up with Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife (Cedar Run) to bring a little wild to this year’s Medford Lakes Canoe Carnival!

This Year, the MLLC launched its “Partners in the Pines” float series. They will be working together with local leaders to showcase their partnership and efforts in the community. The Lions Club chose to team up with a long-time charity partner of theirs, Cedar Run!

In this year’s float, volunteers from both non-profit organizations are coming together to construct a float full of paper-mache trees, painted critters, and a woodland scene full of wildlife! It has been a great time getting to know each organization and team up in such an event, coming together twice a week since the beginning of July.

The Medford Lakes Lions Club President, Nick Bloodworth, and Cedar Run’s Executive Director, Mike O’Malley, will side-by-side paddling a double canoe platformed float around Lower Aetna Lake.

This year’s float will be a HOOT!
See us on the lake on the evening of Saturday, August 6th.

To purchase tickets: Tickets for bleachers seats on Aetna Way can be purchased in the Medford Lakes Colony Office prior to Canoe Carnival. Colonists are welcome to set up their own chairs on the beach surrounding the bleachers starting at 4:00 pm on August 6th, the afternoon of Canoe Carnival.

ABOUT PARTNERSHIP: The MLLC has raised thousands of dollars to support Cedar Run since 2001. In the last few years, through the Lions Christmas Distribution, Cedar Run has gifted several family memberships to provide local families in need a safe outdoor place to explore nature, learn about New Jersey wildlife, and make lasting memories for years to come. Cedar Run was happy to partner with the local Lions Club to bring a natural oasis to local families that have fallen on hard times.

ABOUT CANOE CARNIVAL: Since 1931, Canoe Carnival has been held during the first week of every August on Lower Aetna Lake. Now it is routinely celebrated on the first Saturday of August. Each year float groups compete for prizes in various divisions, as well as for the grand prize. As Medford Lakes’ main annual event, the Canoe Carnival week-long celebrations kick off with the Ms. and Mr. Medford Lakes Pageant, the Canoe Carnival Ball, and Mardi Gras Night. With a parade of elaborately hand-built floats supported on one or two canoes, it is a spectacle unlike any other!
