Mike and Bob Show will bring silliness to Glen Burnie GLEN BURNIE


August 25, 1993|By BONITA FORMWALT

How do you plan on spending Saturday night?

Explaining to the children how "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," may have been able to heal a snakebite but still wasn't allowed to vote? Hanging out at Giant waiting for the Super Deals to change? Cleaning out the bug zapper?

Perhaps you need the Mike and Bob Show, Part Deux.

Yes, Glen Burnie's own Mike Majoros and Bob Wilcox are reprising their popular and somewhat bizarre comedy act. The duo will be performing from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday at the Glen Burnie Park Swim Club, 500 Everett Road.

The admission price of $15 per couple or $8 per individual includes the entertainment, dancing, a cold buffet and beer and setups.

Last year, the gentlemen distributed used articles of their clothing as prizes.

"They make absolute fools of themselves," said friend, neighbor and promoter Barbara Lawton. "With appropriate prizes.

"This year, we've gone with real prizes -- we actually bought these," said Lawton, with a laugh.

The cystic fibrosis that governs 9-year-old Benjamin Stoehr's everyday life took a back seat recently to the joy of a visit to Disney World.

Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Benjamin and his family spent five days in Florida visiting the Magic Kingdom and other area attractions. Make-A-Wish provides trips, visits and memories for children suffering from serious illnesses.

Both Benjamin and his twin brother, Matthew, have CF, a chronic disease of the lungs. They were 18 months old when doctors at John Hopkins diagnosed the illness.

After hearing about the Make-A-Wish program on a television show, the boy's parents, Brenda and Rich, contacted the foundation. Soon the boys were faced with the task of deciding on their wish. Each will have his wish granted.

Benjamin chose to go to Disneyworld, but his brother Matthew had visions of going west -- to Hollywood.

"He wants to eat lunch with the cast of "Beverly Hills 90210," said Brenda.

While still working on Matthew's Hollywood dream, Make-A-Wish was able to arrange a visit to Disney World for the entire Stoehr family.

Their trip included visits to a water theme park, Disney World, Epcot Center, Universal Studios, Sea World and the Hard Rock Cafe.

Benjamin was given a button to wear that read "Give Kids The World" to identify him as a part of the Make-A-Wish program. This enabled him to avoid the long lines at the various attractions.

"It was all so nice," said Brenda. "They did things for us that you would never even dream of.

"They made him feel like a king."


State Sen. Mary Boergers, a Democrat from Montgomery County, will be the guest of the Glen Burnie Business and Professional Women at the group's monthly meeting at 7 p.m. today.

"This will be a round table discussion addressing women's issues and what the legislature can do to address them," explained GBBPW member JoAnn Rich.

Senator Boergers, who was elected to the Senate in 1991 after serving in the House of Delegates, has been mentioned as a possible 1994 gubernatorial candidate.

The goal of the Glen Burnie Business and Professional Women is to promote equality and advancement of women in the workplace.
