Tom Weigt is performing with dance pro Brittany Kemmerer. Their number will feature the lindy dance style this evening. Tom claims there are three basic reasons why he is making this “human sacrifice.” The first is to raise a “boatload” of money for the local American Red Cross. Secondly, he is looking forward to bringing joy and laughter to all, including himself. He claims this gig is “really a blast!” Lastly, since he retired, he has been in search of a second career. With luck, he believes his performance tonight could launch him into dancing stardom. At the very least, he hopes to enjoy your “thunderous applause.” Outside the leisure of retirement, Tom enjoys volunteering for the local Children’s Museum, Minneopa State Park, Kiwanis Holiday Lights, the BackPack Program, and the YMCA. He also enjoys running in local races including the Mankato Marathon, 10Kato and the Mankato River Ramble.
