The romantic comedy tells about a husband and wife, and the hit love song he wrote for her whose proceeds they lived off for the next 25 years. But when Sam’s creative stagnation and memories of passionate youth drive him to Facebook to seek a new muse, Rose decides it’s time for the togetherness of an anniversary cruise in the Greek Islands. Will the sublime music that Sam hears coming from Siren’s Island cause him to jump overboard on his marriage, or will it rekindle the flame?
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4
LFHS Boosters' Diamond Anniversary Campaign Presents, "Bling & Blue"
Lake Forest High School, Competition Gym
1285 N McKinley Rd.
The LFHS Boosters’ Diamond Anniversary Campaign will host “Bling & Blue” this Saturday in connection with the much-anticipated basketball showdown between Lake Forest High School and crosstown rival Lake Forest Academy. A Forest & Bluff partner, The Diamond Anniversary Campaign is a special capital campaign to fund a new multi-purpose outdoor sports complex at Lake Forest High School’s historic Lindenmeyer Field.
Fans are encouraged to show up and show off, outrageous diamond and gold bling. Prizes will be awarded for "best bling" and the winner will be given an Apple iPhone 4S. The first 500 fans in attendance will receive a specially designed commemorative “Bling & Blue” t-shirt, courtesy of Fields Fiat. Two lucky fans (one from LFHS and one from LFA) will be randomly selected for a chance to win a 2012 Fiat 500 automobile by sinking a shot from 3⁄4 court, courtesy of Fields Fiat. Additionally, Fields will donate $10,000 to the Diamond Anniversary Campaign for a winning shot (no pressure!).
