BRADENTON --Only 11 finalists remain on "American Idol," and Bradenton's Sam Woolf is one of them.
Now Realize Bradenton and two local businesses are teaming together to offer a couple of new ways for local individuals and businesses to show their support for the 17-year-old Braden River High School student.
One is a T-shirt that can show your name or your company's logo over the words "Loves Sam Woolf, Bradenton's American Idol." They're available for $15 apiece, with a three-shirt minimum, from Manatee Apparel Graphics. They take about a week to get them after you place our order. Call 941-746-6353 or stop by the showroom at 1130 Ninth St. W. in Bradenton.
And just down the street, starting this week, Motorworks Brewing will be hosting a "Wednesday Woolf Watch." The TVs will be tuned to "American Idol" so you can watch Woolf's weekly performances in the company of other fans.
Never miss a local story.
Motorworks Brewing is at 1014 Ninth St. W.
The performance episode of "American Idol" airs from 8-10 p.m. every Wednesday on Fox. This week's show will feature "Songs of the Cinema."On a shorter program on Thursdays, the results of the public vote are revealed and one contestant is eliminated. This week's results show is scheduled for 9 p.m. ThursdayWoolf has been impressing "Idol" judges with his smooth vocal delivery and has been winning fans -- especially female fans -- across the country .-- Marty Clear
