When Fairy Tales Come True

In 1982, the Philadelphia Eagles’ leukemia foundation sponsored a benefit on behalf of the Sunshine Foundation.  As part of the benefit, Eagles Fly for Leukemia commissioned David Kloss to write When Fairy Tales Come True. He drew his inspiration from this ridiculous image: the well known actor, John Wayne, dancing with a fairy.   The Brandywine Ballet premiered the ballet at Longwood Gardens’ conservatory to an appreciative audience, which included the Philadelphia Eagles.
