2014 distinguished service award

Two years ago, Steve and I were very honored to receive W.S. Berger Distinguished Service Award for our work with Ventriloquist Central.

This year’s recipients are Bob Abdou, Al Rivera, Bob May (Bob couldn’t make it this year) and Tom Crowl for their contributions to the art of ventriloquism.

Bob, Al and Bob were honored for their work they do every year performing for the children at the Cincinnati hospital.

Congratulations all….and welcome to the club!

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com
