joining us to tell us more about the weekend's event, the forest theater are the ceo manu sedarti and dancer maria con ststantino chapin. for those that don't know, tell us about it. >> today we're serving over 1,000 households in the neighborhood, 21 meals a week and giving them a prescription diet for them to win the fight against their illness and we do it mainly by a volunteer organization and we're 36 employees, but we have 3500 volunteers and every day over 100 in our kitchen making it all possible. >> we're looking at these beautiful performances. >> i think every year it's something very different. i think what you can expect is something fun and light and at the same time really special and heartwarming because of the cause.
the dancers get really into it because it's a chance for an arts organization to actually give back. so that can be really special and the dancers are the beens who put it together. so that's a fun twist that we don't usually get to be hands on with. >> how did the partnership begin? how did you get together? >> 25 years ago, the dancers and members of the community and the founding members came together and the story goes after talking it out they said we just need to shut up and dance and so manu was an hiv-aids organization at the time and they partnered and we've been so fortunate over 25 years to have hundreds of thousands of dancers volunteer their time to make this night incredible? how will the proceeds from the event benefit folks in need and what other projects do you have planned for the weeks and month ahead? >> this event is one of the largest fund raisers of the year and we'll raise $150,000 and tickets, there are only a couple hundred left and it will be a
sold-out year and it will go directly to the meals and the clients. >> thank you both for being here today. >> this year's shut up and dance performance this saturday at 8:00 p.m. benefits mania, of course. tap on the nbc 10 mobile app for more information. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> clouds are in place and we have rain that's moving into the area. this is a live view of abbington and looks a lot like wilmington cloud wise and cloudy skies there, too, and light rain in the area and we've seen roain showers at the shore. sunshine, some thin spots in the lehigh valley and some of the suburbs and still lots of clouds and 50s and upper 50s there and down to low 50s and look at south jersey at 52 degrees and i'm expecting less of a warm-up
thanks to the winds coming in off the ocean and inland, we can get up to 60 in philadelphia and not a quick warm-up and we're making slow progress and 54 and westmount areas 55 degrees and the trend is for warmer weather after we cool down tomorrow. look at the temperature surge at the end of the week and the normal temperature for this time of year is 67 degrees and we'll be past that wednesday afternoon and summerlike heat for thursday, friday and saturday that will get us into the weekend, but maybe not through it. i think it will turn cooler on sunday. this is what we're dealing with so far this morning and light showers have moved through delaware and much of south jersey and now they're moving through philadelphia and some steady rain now in burkes county and upper montgomery seeing a few raindrops and it's starting to spread through allentown and nothing, but light rain here and steady rain to the south with thunderstorm activity staying offshore and downpours possible for us tomorrow. this is a system that's
extending into georgia. some heavier downpours in north carolina and south carolina. those will be coming into our area tomorrow afternoon most likely. so we'll get a pretty good amount of rain from this. about a quarter of an inch by philadelphia and half an inch in dover and just over a quarter of an inch at 10:00 tonight and that's on and off showers during the day today and showers in evening, as well. on and off showers overnight tonight and by tomorrow morning we're not looking at a lot more rainfall in the area. egg harbor could see more than a half inch on the ground than that and that's the total for today and overnight tonight. watch what happens as we go through the day tomorrow. here comes the heavier rain. that's 3:00 tomorrow afternoon. some downpours topping an inch of rain in avalon and closing in on two-thirds of an inch in philadelphia at that hour and at 5:00 tomorrow afternoon we've still got rain in the area that continues into the evening hours and it will top an inch of rain
in philadelphia and westchester and pottstown and more than two inches of rain is possible at the shore. yes, you'll need your rain gear today, tomorrow and into wednesday. stays cool today and chillier tomorrow, 49 in the morning and 58 degrees in the afternoon and once we get the sunshine and the temperatures take off and it's looking unusually warm, timed perfectly for the nfl draft and we'll be here through saturday and come sunday that's the next chance for showers and for sunday, we could see showers and possibly a thunderstorm that continues into monday and the showers taper off tuesday and the sunshine returns on wednesday. we'll be right back.
