Shorty and Jerry’s Kids

In 1977 we were asked if we would help with the Jerry Lewis Telethon. We raised thousands of dollars at Legend City for this event.  Legend City and I got a big thank you from the Jerry Lewis Foundation and that was enough.

I remember we did 8 shows that 4th, not only Shorty, but chimps and dogs as well. We opened Legend City at 12 noon and stayed open until 1:30 am. My two sons, Solon and Gabe, worked the acts with me all day.
