Always Remember: September 11th

It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since the World Trade Center came down and almost 3,000 lives were lost to the horrors of terrorism and hatred. I feel confident in saying that those of us who lived through those terrifying days after the attacks will never forget. But for those who lost a husband, wife,… read more

Great Non-Profit: Squash Haven

It’s been far too long since I have featured an incredibly awesome non-profit here on The Sent. Welcome Squash Haven.

Event: Go Wild! 2015

It’s that most wonderful time of the year. It’s hard to feel it in the air because it has been so darn hot in these parts – but I just know fall is coming. And with fall comes my favorite family event of the year. On Sunday September 20th children of all ages are invited… read more

Event: Little Wings Gives to the Hole in the Wall

Non-Profits: A Charity that Shoots Straight to the Heart

When I was working in television there were a handful of stories that I took great pride in telling. One of those stories was that of the Marella family. I met them as they were starting a foundation to raise awareness about and research dollars for a rare disease called Neimann-Pick type C. Their daughter… read more

Threads of Friendship

There is nothing I like more than hearing from old friends who are busy following their dreams and doing cool and interesting things with their lives. I recently was reconnected with a friend from high school who has passionately been designing jewelry in recent years. It was such a pleasure hearing about how she has… read more

Spring Social: The Wall Street Tennis Challenge!

The Wall Street Tennis Challenge is an excellent event that raises money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Research. I have written about them in the past here.
