Most people knew Bob Hope as one of comedy’s greatest legends, and remember his quick-witted humor, skits, wild and wacky movies and his world-renowned USO shows. But did you know that Bob Hope introduced some of the greatest songs ever recorded through radio, Broadway musicals and movies?
Jan Daley remembers. Miss Daley appeared on The Tonight Show, The Merv Griffin Show, The Dean Martin Show, The David Frost Show, and BBC. She opened for comedians such as Don Rickles and Rodney Dangerfield. She has recorded five albums, including the Academy Award nominated “Till Love Touches Your Life” and has co-starred with the likes of Alec Baldwin & Tom Hanks. Daley’s most treasured highlight in her career was singing to 30,000 GIs in Vietnam, as the singing star of The Bob Hope Christmas Tour. This is a remarkable show, highlighted with funny-yet-poignant stories and vintage clips from her travels with the famed entertainer.
“We are thrilled to have Jan Daley in our community to support the works of the Shasta Family Justice Center,” said Michael Burke, executive director of the SFJC. “Jan’s connections with veterans and her ability to reach across the generations to attract new fans will ensure a great show. Her support for victims of family violence is inspiring,” Burke added.
The evening will include a tribute to local veterans, a silent auction, a local opening act, a survivor speaker and more. Proceeds will stay local and help support the daily operation of the SFJC. The SFJC opened September 1, 2010, and has received nearly 1,900 visits for service from victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder and child abuse.
