Ventriloquist to perform in San Pedro
SAGA Fundraiser – Buy a ticket and feed a cat or dog!

On the 22nd of January, Charlotte Hanson a musical comedian and ventriloquist will be performing at the Lion’s Den in San Pedro Town to help raise funds for SAGA Humane Society. Every adult ticket sold for this event will feed a cat or dog, being cared for by SAGA, for 10 days.

Charlotte Hanson was an educator in Texas public schools for 23 years and has been a ventriloquist for over 20 years. She began performing full-time in 2004 as a musical ventriloquist, singer, comedian, and motivational speaker and has studied with One Way Street International Puppetry Festival, Mark Thompson (well known USA musical ventriloquist), and Donald Burton, owner of Somma Music and Recording Studios, Longview, Texas, USA.

Charlotte’s characters range from Beatrice Busily, a feisty older lady, to Melvis Nesley, a take-off of Elvis Presley. With these characters, and a few puppets from the Bunkhouse Bunch, she does a variety show of rock and roll, blues, and country music, as well as Christian shows.

Audiences in the U.S. and Belize have enjoyed her show of side-splitting laughs and toe-tapping music. She has been performing in Belize since 2005. Churches, schools, assisted living homes, civic organizations, rallies, and camps have enjoyed Charlotte’s performances.

Charlotte has a B.A. from the University of Texas and has traveled extensively in the U.S., Mexico, Belize, and Europe. Charlotte works with Children of Hope Foundation (a school sponsorship program) and Compassionate Hearts Alliance in Belize, has made a mission trip to Latvia, and also did ministry with the Christian Motorcyclists Association. She belongs to Women in Christian Media and has released 2 albums, "Old Testament Stories with Songs, Vol. 1" and "Rockin' Gospel".

San Pedro rarely gets the opportunity to enjoy great variety performances and this is a wonderful chance for the whole family to get together, enjoy a wonderful show and support their local humane society. Charlotte will also be visiting a number of schools while in San Pedro, giving the children a chance to see her ‘Bunkhouse Bunch’ during her special children’s performances.

Charlotte Hanson’s High 4 Variety Show will start at 7pm at the Lion’s Den on the 22nd of January. Tickets ($10 for adults $5 for children under 12) are available from the 14th of January at the following outlets: Saga Humane Society, Pampered Paws, Coral Beach Realty, Oh! Danny Boy Realty, Pelican Properties and Caye Management.

There will be a cash bar, food, raffles and plenty of fun activities on the evening. Don’t forget that every ticket sold at this event will help to feed abandoned, neglected and cruelly treated cats and dogs in San Pedro.

SAGA Fundraiser with ventriloquist Charlotte Hansen a Huge Success

Throughout the days of January 19th - 22nd, the island of San Pedro was host to a very special lady and her fabulous friends. Ventriloquist Charlotte Hansen was in town along with her special helper Tudy and the Bunkhouse Gang. Armed with her fun puppets, Charlotte visited several of the schools on the island, performing special mini-shows and entertaining the children. But the grand finale was a very special show at the Lions' Den.

Saturday night saw parents, grandparents and children filling up the seats lined up in the Den in anticipation of a most entertaining variety show. The fundraiser for SAGA Humane Society was completely sold out and at 8:00pm, Charlotte took the stage to give the audience what they had come out to see. Several excited children went onstage to perform the opening dance number for their parents and the night was off to a great start.

Kids eagerly enjoy the show

With a medley of duets with various characters, solos, dances and of course, giggles with George Feathers, children and adults were entertained for the better part of an hour. Charlotte blew everyone away with her skills and the applause was loud and enthusiastic.
SAGA is equally thrilled to announce that they raised a grand total of $2,593 which means that a lot of dogs and cats will be fed and cared for until new homes can be found for them. In a press release sent out by SAGA on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011, SAGA thanks Charlotte for donating her time and talent to the community of San Pedro, as well as her aide Tudy and the community that showed such wholehearted support for the event.

Teachers join Charlotte at ABC

The press release continues... "A big "Thank You" goes to The San Pedro Lions Club for making their Den available - especially Mel Spain and Reds, who were a great help. The raffle prize donors, who provided great prizes including Kakaw Chocolates, who donated a chocolate gift basket, Picasso Spirits, who donated Kahlua and Beach Berry Wine, Kate Vincent at Sew What, who donated a custom made dog bed and Susan Wolski of Aji Tapa Bar, who donated a $100 gift certificate for a tapas tasting for two. [The prizes were raffled out during intermission...]
Of course, in San Pedro, everyone rallies round for good causes, so there are a number of other people who helped to make this all possible who deserve heartfelt thanks. These include Jim and Jamila Janmohamed who stepped in to loan their golf cart to help get Charlotte and her equipment around to the schools until Island Adventures Golf Cart Rental were able to generously donate the use of a golf cart, Marty Casado from Ambergriscaye.com, who along with The Tides Resort, made sure that Charlotte had accommodations during her stay, and Colette Kase and Be Kind Belize, who acted as host to Charlotte and was MC for the fundraiser.

Charlotte and Puppet
So many others helped too and deserve recognition and thanks, such as Dianne Lawrence from Quicksilver Messenger Service, Dan & Eileen from DandE's, Velie and Javier of A&J Island Rental, Milo's Ice, Edna Marin (for the famous Chicken Dip),Rebecca McDonald and Sheri Luepke. Of course we can't leave out the SAGA volunteer crew including Elena Rivera, Carolina Gonzalez, Grant Crimmins, Lori Purdy, Rosa La Rosa, Joe La Rosa, Kathy Marin, Ingrid Lima, Mary Hawthorne, Heidi Sowards, Ari Trejo and Bruce (the "Near Sighted Bartender") Pickering! And finally, to the ticket vendors there is more appreciation and these include Oh! Danny Boy Realty, Pampered Paws, Coral Beach Realty, Pelican Properties and Caye Management. Without the local media houses and their support, the event would never have been so successful.

As always, SAGA Humane Society could not survive and save so many animals if it weren't for the wonderful San Pedro Community. There is one very special thanks left and that is to George Feathers, the wonderful puppet who brought joy and laughter to hundreds of children (and quite a few adults too!)."
