Past Events


  • July 22, 2017 – First Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Walk and vendor show to benefit A Better Choice of Living Shelter and Half-way house. I spoke to the attendees about how important it is for a victim to have a place to go when she needs to leave an abusive situation and this is something our area doesn’t have enough of.


  • October 24, 2014 – I returned to Pages and Light Bookstore in Somerset, PA to join several performers on Soundstage – a venue for local musicians.

They donated half of the cover cost to the Women’s Help Center – generous ladies!
