San Diego Scholarship Opportunities Available- Deadline February 4th

I saw San Diego Foundation featured on KUSI recently. If you are shopping for a scholarship opportunity you will want to check them out. They gave out 800 scholarships to San Diegans alone last year. Scholarships are available for community colleges and trade schools as well as universities. An essay is required to learn more about you and there is a February 4th deadline, so check this out soon!

Steel Magnolias Plays at Vista's Broadway Theater through February 8th

What a TREAT it was to see Steel Magnolias at Vista's Broadway Theater! It had just the right mixture of laughs, thoughtful moments and tugs at the heart strings to make a perfect production. Sandra Kopitzke, Chelsey Moore, Patti Goodwin, Melissa Murphy Beamish, Jennifer Scibetta and Robin LaValley were amazing in mastering their roles. Oh, and did I mention that it is directed by the one and only Kathy Brombacher? 

For me it was a great trip back to 1989 by way of music and fashion and a study in how diversity among friendships enriches our lives. Though so different in personality, these friends had a bond that could not be threatened, pulling each other through the best and worst of times. If you loved the movie, you will not be disappointed by this production. I urge you to get a ticket and see it during it's run which ends February 8th. Tickets are $21.50 and worth every penny. This is local theater at it's finest. Delightful!

P.S.- I'm a Broadway Baby, are you? For more info on that program, see Broadway Theater's web or Facebook page.
