Today's Prize

Can you imagine honing an act to the point where it is perfect in every way and then performing it over 25,000 times over a period of fifty years? Well, that, in a nutshell, sums up the career of Sammy King. On July 18, 2009 he gave one final performance to a crowd of 425 of his peers at the Vent Haven International Convention, and then donated his puppet, Francisco, to the museum. The standing ovation was long and there was not a dry eye in the house. This 20 minute DVD, donated as today's prize by Lee Cornell, is a recording of that historic event.

And the lucky winner of this DVD, "One Last Time", is Jose Camacho.

  2. This happenes to be history, I was one of the fortunate 425 who was able to be present when Sammy was given the honor of retiring his vent figure,Francisco 'Hones' Jones, Don't Touch My Feet into the museum and told us the story of his career as well as showed us this vid. It was an experience I will never forget. Sammy is one of the best. This year will be 70 years of Jimmy Nelson's career, all will be there hope your there as well...
