The Memorial Follies Take Center Stage on the Mike Bastinelli Show [AUDIO]


Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital staff and community members will take the stage at Yakima’s Capitol Theatre on March 2 for the latest edition of “The Memorial Follies”.

Here’s how the official Follies website describes it:

A Broadway-style show and fundraiser, The Follies showcases local community and hospital talent. The funds raised from the 2013 Follies will benefit Memorial’s campaign for healthier children in the Yakima Valley.


“Our greatest asset in the Yakima Valley are our children,” says Rick Linneweh, Memorial Hospital CEO. “The Follies is a community tradition dating back decades, and Memorial is excited to continue the tradition for new generations to enjoy. We are extremely proud to have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local healthcare programs and services.”


The Follies started in 1990, when Mrs. Bill Robertson said “let’s bring the Follies to Yakima.” Since that first event, the Follies has continued to impact our community by raising funds and awareness for Children’s Village, Memorial’s NICU, and various other healthcare services.


Director Jaime Donegan returns to Yakima to produce and direct his seventh consecutive Follies. Jaime Donegan Productions has a national reputation for working with charity organizations and has raised more than $18 million in 38 states.

Donegan was a guest on Thursday’s Mike Bastinelli show. He talked about this year’s production, what makes it special, and how to discover and get the most talent out of Memorial Hospital staff and members of the community.
