The Magic of Sterling Dietz

December, 2009  NEWSLETTER

 

Sterling Music BoxMy Dear Friends,

 

The month of December is always a great month for corporate Christmas shows, which always come with a great catered dinner! This year was no different. I had all the prime rib and salmon dinners you can imagine to hold me over for another year. Too bad Jessica can’t eat as much as I do. She has to be able to fit into those very small boxes, so it’s salads for her.

 

Just a quick reminder, if you click here, I have uploaded pictures from all my recent shows including the recent public shows from the Blaine Performing Arts Center. I always enjoy looking through the pictures and seeing the expressions on the audience’s faces. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

I continue to work with my web designer, Brandon Hahnel, on my website. Currently we are tweaking the look of my site, so stay tuned for more updates on that.

 

The Blaine Performing Arts Center shows went extremely well. It was unfortunate that it was also the first snow of the year causing the roads to be quite treacherous that day. We felt very fortunate to have the attendance that we did, considering many people who tried to attend had to turn around because of the icy road conditions. I am thankful for all of those who were able to make it, and for your safe return home that night to your families. The Blaine Close Up Foundation in spite of the weather was able to raise money for their students.

 

I’d also like to announce a very special public show coming up on January 16th, 2010. Glanzer Adoption Flyer

When I was seven years old, my parents gave me the opportunity to sponsor a child my own age in Haiti through Compassion International. For seven years we would write letters to each other and it felt great to know that I was making a difference in someone’s life. I have been very blessed that God has given me the family, and the talents that I have. It has allowed me to flourish and develop my God given potential. I have used the entertainment of my magic to support many things like Boys and Girls clubs, Relay for Life, Cystic Fibrosis Bike-a-thon, the Susan G Komen Foundation, Kidstown International, and Special Olympics and many others all of which were, and are, important. 

 

On January 16, I and all of you who attend will all have the opportunity to make a monumental difference in the life of two Ugandan children being adopted by the Glanzer family of Bellingham. Carrie and Brandon Glanzer have made the decision to adopt two children from Uganda, Africa. This selfless act will require a lot of sacrifice on their part in terms of time and money. They have committed themselves to not just sponsor a child financially through monthly contributions like many of us have done. But rather, they have committed to sponsoring these two children for a lifetime. A total commitment to provide these children with a stable loving home, with shelter, education, and the opportunities of a productive life, in this great country of ours. What greater gift in life can there be? What an opportunity we all have to be part of it. The event is a fundraiser to help defer some of the immediate costs the Glanzer family will need in order to bring these children home, to their new family. Come join me for an evening of celebration and magic as we play a part in being the village that raises a child.
