KELLY-MILLER NEWS....,

Kelly Miller Circus returns to Wilmette for two performances
August 27, 2010
After a one-year hiatus, it is circus time again in Wilmette. The Kelly Miller Circus returns to the field behind the Mikaelian Education Center, 615 Locust Road, Wilmette, for two benefit performances at 2 and 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25. All proceeds support the District 39 Educational Foundation which provides funding for educational programs, experiences, and technologies in each of the District's six schools.
The Kelly Miller Circus has been a Wilmette favorite over the past 10 years, providing an opportunity to bring District 39 families together to experience this creative and innovative family of performers. Leslie Weyhrich, chair of the Foundation's Board of Trustees, commented that "It is nice to be able to bring this piece of Americana back to Wilmette. From the opportunity to watch the Big Top go up, to experiencing the circus elephants up close, to enjoying the arcade games at the Midway, it's a great way to kick off the back-to-school season."

The Kelly Miller Circus has been providing family entertainment as a traditional tented circus since 1938. This year's show features elephants, horses, rare white tigers and a cast of international circus stars under a beautiful circus big top. The always-exciting elephant-powered raising of the Big Top is itself a great free show that will take place around 9 a.m. on circus morning and all are welcome.
Circus seating is limited. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $35 for ringside box seating. Children under two are free. Tickets are available for purchase at Lad & Lassie, Fuel, The Noodle, and Depot Nuevo in downtown Wilmette and at Nail Art on Ridge Road. Tickets can also be purchased at the Mikaelian Education Center or ordered online at http://www.d39foundation.org/. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the circus box office on the day of the event.
The Foundation would like to thank its community sponsors for their generous support: F.J. Kerrigan Plumbing Co, Plaza del Lago Shopping Center, No Man's Land Pizza & Grill, Munday & Nathan, Bryan's Garage, Forrest's Service, Wilmette Auto Body, Tabet DiVito & Rothstein.
The District 39 Educational Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to investing in our children's future. Circus proceeds will support the Foundation's Gripp Grant program, which grants funds for educational programs, experiences, and technologies that expand, enrich, and complement the schools' curricula. Over the past 15 years, Gripp Grant awards have funded a broad range of priorities throughout D39 schools and the wider community. Recent awards include technology innovation, architecture and math programs, outdoor classrooms, fitness programs, reading initiatives, poets-in-residence, and prairie gardens.
