Women's History Day At The Sacramento History Museum March 9th

In honor of “Women’s History Month,” the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation is proud to present a special Living History event: Women’s History Day that will  take place throughout Old Sacramento State Historic Park on Saturday, March 9. 

Dressed in 19th century period attire, men and women will passionately debate the controversial topic of women’s suffrage.  In addition, visitors to Old Sacramento may chance upon Living History characters as they roam the streets urging women to take up the vote.

The origins of “Women’s History Month” as a national celebration date back to 1981 when Congress identified a week in March  as “Women’s History Week.”  In 1995, the celebration was expanded to the entire month and the tradition continues.

Childhood Cancer Head Shaving Events Kick Off Saturday

St.  Baldrick's head shaving events for childhood cancer research kick off this Saturday, March 2!

The Keaton Raphael Memorial presents the 11th Annual St. Baldrick's Foundation head shaving celebrations, designed to raise funds to support childhood cancer research by recruiting "Heroes" to shave their heads in front of thousands live in return for pledges of financial support from friends and family members. This year's celebrations are scheduled to take place in Roseville, Sacramento and Davis.

Why all the shaved heads?
        • Worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes, and one in five children diagnosed in the U.S. will not survive.
        • In the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease-more than aids, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.
        • Only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding is dedicated to pediatric cancer research.
        • St. Baldrick's Foundation volunteers, supporters and donors are needed to continue the battle against this devastating disease.

As one of the top five St. Baldrick's campaigns  nationwide, The Keaton Raphael Memorial events brought in over $889,000 during the 2012 shave extravaganza's and shaved almost 1,000 heads with a total of over 4 million dollars raised since KRM's first event in 2003.   All proceeds go to childhood cancer research and could not be raised without the support of the community sponsors and volunteers coming together to help shave away childhood cancer!

Saturday, March 2nd, at Westfield Galleria in Roseville, from 12p.m.-4p.m.
Monday, March 11th, at deVere's Irish Pub in Sacramento, from 4p.m.-8p.m.
Wednesday, March 13th, at deVere's Irish Pub in Davis, from 5p.m.-8p.m.

Chris Riva from KCRA and Adrienne Bankert, returning from Dallas, will emcee for the March 2nd event. Thousands of people will cheer on those getting shaved. Star Wars characters will make an appearance on March 2. Families of childhood cancer victims will also share stories.The  de Vere's Irish March 11 and 13 shaves will take place outdoors with lots of action and crowd involvement. Supercuts generously supplies all stylists for all events.

Obie Award-Winner Hank & My Honky Tonk Heroes Comes To Three Stages

It is a trip down country music’s memory lane. In Hank & My Honky Tonk Heroes, Jason Petty pays tribute not only to Hank Williams and his influence on country music but also to the stars who influenced Hank and those whom Hank influenced. These include Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, George Jones and more.

Petty, accompanied by an authentic four-piece country band, re-creates such Williams’ hits as: "I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Your Cheatin’ Heart," "Hey Good Lookin’," "Cold Cold Heart," "Lovesick Blues," and "You Win Again," among others.

Jason Petty won rave reviews from all the major critics, including Variety and Rolling Stone. The NY Post stated it best, “At times it seems as if Petty is not just offering an impersonation of Williams, but channeling his ghost.” Another sign of recognition for Petty’s brilliant performance of Hank Williams was being honored with an Obie Award for “Outstanding Actor”. “It was like I was transported back in time to when I was playing with the original Hank. He’s that good. He’s got the look, the charm, the wit….and most of all….he’s got the voice and the talent. Every music fan will love this show!" says Don Helms, original member of the Hank Williams Band.

Jason Petty, a veteran actor and singer has performed in theatres across the United States, Canada and Europe. Petty began his career 50 miles from the farm at Nashville’s Opryland music park. Performing four shows a day, seven days a week, Petty caught the attention of the director of an upcoming musical at the Ryman Auditorium. He was hand-picked for the starring role in Hank Williams: Lost Highway, and it led him straight for the stage, where he has been ever since. Since that time, Petty appeared in National Tours of Lost Highway and Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes, a musical revue which also Petty authored.

His acting ability has afforded Petty roles in film, television and theatre. His musicianship and song writing abilities have won him numerous performances on The Grand Ole Opry, and the honor of being invited to perform with the most distinguished songwriters and producers at the exclusive Blue Bird Café in Nashville.

Hank & My Honky Heroes will perform in Three Stages on Thursday, March 7, 7 p.m.; Friday, March 8, 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 9, 2 pm & 7 p.m. Tickets are $29-39; they may be purchased online at or from Three Stages Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Three Stages is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, facing East Bidwell Street.

KidsFirst Supports Kinship Families With Its First Annual Event To Raise Awareness

Kinship families exist in Placer County.  The challenge is finding them and letting them know about free programs that can help support them and make their journey easier and more enjoyable.  This Spring, KidsFirst is holding its first annual event to raise awareness of this growing problem in our community.

According to national experts, more than six million children in the US live in households headed by relatives other than the parents who provide full-time care, nurturing and protection to these vulnerable children. Raising these children successfully is even more difficult as statistics show that these families are more likely to live in poverty, to be uninsured, and have limited access and knowledge of local community-based resources that can help them.

KidsFirst has a support program specifically designed to help Kinship Families.  From navigating the legal system to handling academic and social issues, KidsFirst helps Kinship families create strong unified bonds that help children succeed.  But in order to locate these families, the entire community needs to be engaged.

To raise awareness of this issue, KidsFirst is holding its first annual Spring Break Fun Pack for Kinship Families Drive.  The goal is to give each participating Kinship family currently enrolled in a KidsFirst Kinship Program (30 families) a Spring Break they will remember forever.  Whether it’s movie tickets, ice-cream cones, bowling, skating, a manicure, fishing, swimming or more, the idea is to create an opportunity for both the child and caregiver to take a break, laugh and bond with each other. 

KidsFirst wishes to acknowledge the following Placer County businesses who have committed to supporting this year’s Fun Pack Drive:  The City of Roseville Parks & Recreation, Re|Create, Nothing Bundt Cake, Roller King Skating & Blading, Baskin Robbins, Golfland Sunsplash, Foothill Bowling Center, Target, Roseville Dermatology, BounceU and Blue Line Arts.

Being a family takes hard work.  These Spring Break Fun Packs will cheer them on and reward those families that are making it work against all odds.  It’s a great way of saying thank you for staying the course and keeping our children safe.

In addition to contributions, KidsFirst is asking all community members to refer any Kinship Family they know to KidsFirst so they too can receive the support and services they deserve and need.

KidsFirst plans on distributing fun packs to families currently enrolled in the Kinship program, during the week of March 11th.  For donations and in-kind support, please contact Dina Navarra, Development Manager, at or 916-774-6802 x2828.

KidsFirst is a private, non-profit organization established in 1989 dedicated to the prevention and healing of child abuse. KidsFirst provides an array of programs and victim services that prevent and treat abuse including child and family counseling, parent education, youth groups, after-school programs, information and referrals to low/no-cost resources throughout the Sierra-Sacramento region.  KidsFirst family resource centers are located in Roseville, Auburn and Citrus Heights.
