I am participating in a fund raiser for Rosie's Place in Boston, a wonderful place......
Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women, offers emergency and long-term assistance to women who have nowhere else to turn. Founded in 1974, Rosie’s Place welcomes each guest with respect and unconditional love. Rosie’s Place accepts no government funds, and relies instead on committed volunteers and private supporters to accomplish its effective and innovative work.
The fundraiser is this evening in Framingham ~ below is the announcement
from the organizer, Cheryl Perreault. Hope to see u there!!

WOMEN MUSICIANS and ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR ROSIE'S PLACE
I would also like to announce a special fundraiser that I am involved with taking place tomorrow between the hours of 4:00 and 10:00.
This event will be an open-house style ...come when you can for a few hours or stay the entire time! This special event of partaking of Mexican food, listening to a non-stop line-up of talented female performers and viewing beautiful art...all for a donation of your choice for Rosie's Place is the vision
and creation of singer-songwriter Ruthann Baler who is founder of Strike A Chord
There will be ongoing music performed by a line-up of 30 talented women and I look forward to emceeing the whole event with my dear friend Ellen Schmidt! There will also be a number of artists exhibiting artwork including previous guest features of the Women's Art Forum such as Jeanine Vitale, Kris Waldman, Lynne Damianos and Virginia Fitzgerald. In fact, Virginia will be exhibiting a wall piece in addition to one of her special dress art pieces! All artwork will be available for purchase and each artist has kindly agreed to donate a portion or all of their sales to Rosie's Place!
A line-up of the performers and a listing of the artists can be found in the attachment.
I'm really looking forward to this special event of women artists sharing their art for women of Rosie's Place.
This event is open to the public. We would love to see you there in support of this special cause.
