First all-class reunion this weekend

SHARON — Former Sharon High School students, teachers, coaches and administrators are invited to join the first all-class reunion weekend, sponsored by the class of 1989.

Called the “Orange and Silver,” it is intended to be an annual weekend of events to which students are welcome to attend, regardless of the year they graduated, to visit with other classmates and neighbors.

This year’s inaugural event, the “Diff’rent Stripes Mixer,” will be held at 8 p.m. Friday at Tully’s in Sharon. The Orange & Silver Gala will be at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Corinthian.

Event founder Marty Wallach of Tampa said Orange and Silver will also be philanthropic, with proceeds from each year’s event going to charity.

This year’s donation will be given to the families of Corey Swartz and Evan Gill, the Sharon High School football teammates who were killed in a traffic crash last fall.

“We have chosen the SHS Football Players Fund as our inaugural charity because it is a good fit for our event on a number of levels,” Wallach said. “We look forward to turning this small event into some tangible love for a few families of our own in their time of need. This singular action will validate a 25-year dream that I have had to help reunite friendships, support my hometown and make a difference with our collective God-given talents.”

Kirsten Kirby-Tallman of Philadelphia, who is co-chairing the event with Carmen Aiello, added the event is being “held on a Waterfire weekend, a short walk from the river. ... We hope to give out-of-towners a unique perspective to the new, redefined Sharon. We aim to honor the past and celebrate the momentum that Waterfire has created.

“We have Steve Vuich and Grant Street Exit bringing the live music. And DJ Dave Krivda of Philadelphia will be spinning all of our favorite oldies on wax.”

Special guest hosts at 10 p.m. Saturday will be Sharon Hall of Fame Coach Jim Wildman, Sharon and Lousiana State University Tiger great Nebojsa Sormaz and Youngstown State’s championship quarterback Ray Isaac.

VIP tickets are available in advance from Lindy’s at the Beach, Hermitage; or by calling 724-981-7866. Tickets for the mixer are $20 for VIP tickets, which include beer and wings. Tickets for the gala are $40 and include appetizers and an open bar. A portion of the proceeds of all ticket sales will be donated to the families of Corey Swartz and Evan Gill.

Donations can be mailed to The SHS Reunion, Box 283, Sharon.
