Billy Joel's

Movin' Out

for JARC

Brad Schulman with his sister, Alison Schulman,
and Stephanie Saal, all of Royal Oak

ome of singer Billy
Joel's best-known songs
came to life on stage in
dramatic fashion at the Fisher
Theater in Detroit during JARC's
26th annual Fall Fundraiser.
About 3,500 people gathered
for two separate performances of
the Tony Award-winning musi-
cal Movin' Out — featuring
24 Billy Joel classics
set to exhilarating
dance routines by
famed modern dance
choreographer Twyla
The event, held
Nov. 1-2, raised
nearly $1.4 million,
a new record, for
Farmington Hills-
based JARC. The
organization pro-
vides group homes, recreational
therapy and other support
services for people with develop-
mental disabilities.
"JARC is the most profoundly
decent organization I've ever
seen:' said Rob Nusbaum of
Franklin, who chaired the event
with his wife, Lori, for the sec-
ond year. "What they do is so
humanly good — everyone there
comes to work for one reason, to
change lives."
More than 325 young adults
also attended a "Big Shots VIP
Lounge & Bistro" pre-glow, on
Nov. 2 at Grand City Grille, inside
the Fisher Building. Some of the
food, drinks and desserts at the

party were served in shot glasses,
a nod to the Billy Joel song "Big
Shot." The 21-40 crowd raised
more than $125,000 for JARC,
and organizers say young adult
participation is growing. Close to
90 new young adult donors took
part in this year's event.
"I think it's a great organiza-
tion," said Brian Young of West
Bloomfield, one of the
pre-glow co-chairs.
"It's good for the com-
munity to be able to
integrate people with
disabilities and enable
them to be productive
Members of society"
Associate chairs for
the Fall Fundraiser
included: Lindsay
and Ryan Dembs,
Sherri and Jimmy
Ketai, and Barbara and Irving
Nusbaum, all of Franklin;
Nancy and Howard Luckoff,
and Marla Tapper and Brian
Young, all of West Bloomfield.
Corporate gift chairs included:
David Carroll of Beverly
Hills, and Jeff Eisenshtadt of
Bloomfield Hills.
Spotted in the crowd were:
Stacey and Steve Gursten
and Katie Borman, all of
Bloomfield Hills; Sara Zonder
of Royal Oak; Allan Urman
of West Bloomfield; Adina
and Aaron Pergament
of Huntington Woods; and
Courtney and Mark Colton
of Birmingham.
