Hey everyone, I’m Mike, and she’s Sophie, and We’re on the Road with Mickey! This is episode #48 for December 14, 2020, and our feature topic today is Night of a Million Lights! Today we are talking about our visit to the Give Kids the World Village to take in their event Night of a Million Lights. Grab a drink, relax, and join us as we talk about all the great things that we enjoyed on our trip! Here’s our rundown of what we talked about:
- Cheddar from the Big Cheese

- Sophie: Coming to Disney+ — a prequel series to Beauty and the Beast! Starring Luke Evans and Josh Gad, the name of the series hasn’t officially been named, but a rumor is that it will be called “The Little Town”
- Sophie: Over on the big screen, Harrison Ford has been tapped to play Indiana Jones in the 5th and last installment of the Indiana Jones movie series!

- From now until the end of the year, we are going to focus on a special charity to talk about. The charity we have selected is the Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue (https://goldenrescuenc.org/) – This charity works to help abandoned Golden Retrievers find their forever home. We have used them twice now, once with our boy Regan and the second time with our boy River, and they are wonderful to work with. If you are interested in donating to their organization, the place to do so is at https://goldenrescuenc.org/support-nrgrr
