Join the creator of Disney Channel's "Phineas and Ferb" at a special benefit on Saturday, July 16, for Cheryl Washington Brantley's upcoming kidney transplant.
To donate online, go to:
The event, which takes place at 9 a.m. at E.R. Dickson Elementary, will raise money to help Cheryl and her family with expenses related to her kidney transplant.
Dan Povenmire, who created the popular show "Phineas and Ferb," and Cheryl were classmates at John S. Shaw High School. Cheryl, who has lupus, has been in kidney failure for four years. Dan's sister Linda just found out she is a match and will be donating a kidney to her friend Cheryl within the next few weeks.
Cheryl, a former newspaper journalist who retired last year because of her illness, is married to Mike Brantley, assistant online editor at the Press-Register in Mobile. They are the parents of an 8-year-old daughter.
Without a transplant, Cheryl will die.
In addition to a presentation from Dan, who voices the character Dr. Doofensmirtz, the event will also include a live auction of merchandise and posters from "Phineas and Ferb" and other Disney TV shows.
There will also be drawings for prizes. Stay tuned for details about how you and your family can win a trip to the Disney Studios in Hollywood for a behind-the-scenes look at how the show is made. This prize will include airfare, hotel accommodations and tickets to Disneyland.
WPMI-TV’s Darwin Singleton will serve as host. And Press-Register Cartoonist J.D. Crowe will be the auctioneer.
Admission is a donation of $10 (cash only).
Additional donations can also be made for:
* A signed poster from Dan Povenmire
* Caricatures of you and your family by local artist Brent Amacker
* A keepsake photograph of you and your family
Donuts, coffee and juice will be served.
