Two dozen happy LETMESAIL members and chaperones shared an exciting afternoon recently when they traveled to Burbank's NBC Studios to watch a live taping of "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.

The field trip was planned by Russ Stacey, LETMESAIL client Jonah Stacey's father and board member of Lifestyle Enrichment Through Meaningful Exercise Social Activities and Independent Living in Santa Clarita.

Experiencing the live taping was important to LETMESAIL client Michael Paletz, 38, who was in a terrible car accident that left him in a coma and caused permanent brain damage.

"Michael just had to watch ‘The Tonight Show' every night without fail or he would become very upset," said Michelle Paletz, Michael's sister. "The show helped him in his long and sometimes tedious healing process."

Kathy Buckley, billed as America's first hearing-impaired comedienne, entertained LETMESAIL clients before the taping.

LETMESAIL is a rapidly growing nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals who are "differently-abled."

The 200-member group has a wide range of physical, intellectual, emotional and medical disabilities.

LETMESAIL offers nearly 20 social, recreational and educational activities monthly and relies on charitable contributions of individuals, corporate donations, grants, in-kind donations and event fundraisers.

LETMESAIL will host its second New Year's Eve Bon Voyage Ball Dec. 31 at the Hyatt in Valencia.
