Storyline

Taking them six months to save enough money, the kids have purchased a silver platter for their parent's wedding anniversary. Wanting the gift to be even more special, Jan, without telling her siblings, gets the platter engraved. However, she misinterprets the cost of the engraving which is not 85¢ as she believes, but rather 85¢ per letter for a grand total of $56, money which she and her siblings don't have. So they have to figure out a way to raise the money within the week. After the kids exhaust other options such as selling personal items and even trying to take out a loan from a bank, Jan has an idea that could net them $100: perform on the Pete Sterne Amateur Hour, the first prize being that $100. But they have to pass the audition and win the contest, neither of which are guarantees, and all without their parents or Alice finding out what they're up to. Written by Huggo
