Wishline TV pilot

I have been a volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida since the year 2000. It has been such an incredibly rewarding experience. I love being a volunteer for this organization because all it costs is a little bit of your time and you end up meeting a lot of good hearted people, many which become long lasting friends.

I have been asked to film a few wishes over the years and then one day I thought, wouldn’t it be a great idea turn the Make-A-Wish newsletter into a TV show? I am going for a feeling like Ty Pennington’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. But instead of building a house, we are taking you on the journey of what it’s like to be a part of a wish and especially what it’s like for the wish child, and their family, to experience such a thing. It’s a rewarding experience for the volunteer “Wish Granter” because we get to interview the children and help them discover their heartfelt wish. After the main office does the hard work (making the travel arrangements and/or coordinating with the celebrity) to make the wish happen, then we get to deliver it by throwing a “wish delivery party” and sharing the wish itinerary with the family. There is nothing like seeing the smiles of the children, and the family, when it sinks in that their dream is really going to happen. It is great to keep in touch with the family too, after the wish, to hear all about it.

Here is my concept for a wholesome reality TV show with heart. One that elevates the level of TV content, from what you normally see. Something with a righteous and worthy purpose; TO HELP KIDS FORGET ABOUT DOCTORS, HOSPITALS AND THEIR ILLNESS FOR A WHILE AND GIVE THEM A MEMORY OF A LIFETIME. Just watch these videos to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they live out their heartfelt wish!

Thank you, Amy Sedlacek, who agreed to host and do voice-overs for the show. Amy is a former TV reporter for Fox 4 News AND the 2012 Make-A-Wish “Wish Granter” of the year. She currently works at Norman Love Confections. She is a caring, energetic and generous over achiever that I am very glad to know! If you are looking for a great charity organization, then I suggest that you go to the national home page for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, to find the nearest chapter to where you live.

This first episode describes the origin & evolution of the Foundation from it’s very first wish into the Global Organization that it is today. It also highlights the wish of a 9 year old boy, who suffers from a seizure disorder, whose #1 wish was to play basketball with the Florida Gulf Coast University men’s basketball team. This FGCU team just made history this week by being the first 15 seed to get to the final 16, in the NCAA March Madness National Championship Tournament. Go Eagles!

This segment shows a 14 year old girl live out her dream of being a ROCK STAR!

In this segment, Joshua gets to swim and communicate with dolphins. A very fun wish!

Russian Music Salon

SUNDAY CONCERT SERIES

Bella Gutshtein & Boris Sandler started an educational organization, The Russian Cultural Center of Naples in the year 2012. They host classical music performances at the Koreshan State Historical Site in Estero, Florida. The Estero Concert Series invites some of the most talented musicians, who play world class music from the greatest composers in history. If you go to one of their concerts, you will be treated to Chamber Music from Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Dvorak and more!

VOICES OF THE HOLOCAUST PROGRAM

Bella & Boris also created the VOICES OF THE HOLOCAUST program, a mixture of classical music and dramatic readings to commemorate UN International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year I filmed their program, “I never saw another butterfly… Love is as strong as death”, dedicated to the littlest victims of war. It was a rousing and emotional night. These two videos introduce Zofia Majewski singing “Eyl Malei Rachamim”, a traditional Jewish prayer and also includes Kaddish from Holocaust survivor Abe Price, projected drawings by children from Terezín and Darfur who grew up surrounded by war,  and stirring classical music performances of A. Schnittke’s Piano Quintet, J.S. Bach’s Chromatic Fantasia and my personal favorite Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2.

RUSSIAN MUSIC SALON

My good friends Boris & Bella host an exhilarating “Evening with Boris & Bella”, consisting of music, poetry and delectable exotic food. It is a unforgettable private concert that will expand your cultural horizons. Tonight we enjoyed a “VIRTUOSO CONCERT featuring Herman Hesse”, a musical program put together by Artistic Director Bella Gutshtein and accompanied by Boris Sandler on violin. It truly was an enchanting experience.
