Sunday, March 26th, 2017 saw the fun and exciting launch of Elyse Bruce’s Missy Barrett chapter book “Pinwheels and Pearls.”
It all happened at Pat & Don MacPherson’s Sweet Fanny Adams Theater in Galtinburg Tennessee. Gatlinburg, as many will know, boasts one of the most picturesque entrances into Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Theater is “Gatlinburg´s ONLY Musical Comedy Entertainment Attraction and the OLDEST Purveyor of Professional, Live-On-Stage, Original Musical Comedies, outrageous humor and hilarious fun in the Smokies.” See the Sweet Fanny Adams Theater website for details.
The theater provided the popcorn…
And Elyse Bruce, along with her entourage, provided the entertainment. Here is the author herself, treading the boards and reading from her book, “Pinwheels and Pearls.”
Here she is with Sophia Conerly of Relay For Life explaining how important the cause is and what people can do to get involved.
Captain Cancer Fighter (who figures prominently in the book) and his mom, Ann Sutton Bowman, were “drafted” to act out parts of the book while Elyse read…
And last, but not least, here is Elyse with Charlie, who won a pearl bracelet from Tobias Gatlinburg.
There were many other door prizes given as well, all of these coming from local businesses, such as Arcade City, Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, Elyse Bruce herself, and Relay For Life of Sevier County. Other businesses provided coupons and other forms of support for this event, and for Relay For Life.
I’m told there will be more events coming up in the future where Elyse’s book will be featured, and the sales from this book will benefit Relay For Life.
