It's official! Jackie Chan will be giving two charity concerts in April. He will be in New York City on April 7th and in Las Vegas on April 10th. Tickets to the Las Vegas event went on sale today and the New York event tickets go on sale on March 6th. Stay tuned for more information. As it states on the main news page, the JC Group will work hard to make special accomodations for the VIP members (don't forget....all you Kids Club members ARE VIP members). Of course, no promises have been made. So let's just cross our fingers and hope for the best!
There are several new Buddy Bear designs today. Thanks to Ann for her wonderful, whimsical bears! Here's the webmaster's favorite from Ann:

There are lots of new birthday cards for Jackie. Thanks to Sue Clayton from Texas for sending in cards made by her second grade class. Sue is an old friend of the Kids Corner.

From the main news page here at jackiechan.com:
Jackie Chan & Friends Charity Concert
Jackie is likely to gather his friends once again to stage a charity concert at the MGM, Las Vegas coming April. And the good news is it's not just the West Coast this time! We're taking it East Coast as well. The venue will very likely be The Madison Square Garden in New York.
Dates of the concerts are April 7th in N.Y. and April 10th in Las Vegas. We are doing our best to work out arrangements with the Organizers to reserve some special seats exclusively for our VIP members. It's not a promise but we're trying to negotiate a little discount too!
Don't expect too much though! After all, these are fund raising concerts and like the previous times, we hope to benefit as many of our affiliate charities as possible!
KEEP A LOOK OUT FOR FURTHER NEWS!
