Mary Dougherty and her team of Mary’s Miracle Workers have been putting the fun in fundraising for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of her Women of the Year Campaign, but they aren’t done yet. This Friday, they invite creative types and not so creative types to join them at Glassworks Studio Happy Hour to help create a one of a kind piece of earth friendly art that will be auctioned off to help support the cause and on Monday, June 12, Brendan Fletcher of the Voice will be performing at Mayo Performing Arts Center and all proceeds go to support LLS. Donations are always welcome.
Glassworks Fundraiser for LLS. Stacey Schlosser from Glassworks Studio came up with a creative way to reuse plastic bottles to create a faux Chihuly Chandelier. Everyone who joins in will add to the sculpture by making as many components as they like; the instructions are simple, the process is joyful and the cause is worthy. You can register online at Glassworks and your $20 helps out LLS. This will be a fun filled evening perfect for you to invite friends to.
Brendan Fletcher, who rocketing to stardom on the Voice is supporting the cause with a concert at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Monday, June 12. Tickets are available starting at $25 and VIP Tickets include a pre-show reception meet & greet.
Born and raised in Randolph, New Jersey and currently living in Brooklyn, soulful singer/songwriter Brendan Fletcher got his start touring bars around the tristate. Influenced by the great rock, soul and blues musicians Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, and Bruce Springsteen, Brendan writes and performs music with an old soul sound. His original music, with songs like, “Boston,” which climbed to #5 on the Itunes singer/songwriter charts, draws inspiration from his childhood summers spent on the Jersey Shore, his family, heartbreak, and his journey to find his unique voice. In 2016, Brendan competed on the 11th season of NBC’s hit show The Voice, singing his way to the semi-finals. His powerful performances were praised by Rolling Stone as “soulful, elegant and stirring.” Brendan added new depth and his unique, raspy sound to popular hits; his rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” hit No. 2 on the iTunes overall chart, and his cover of “Whipping Post” by the Allman Brothers Band hit No. 1 on the iTunes rock chart. Brendan’s pure sound and authentic presence onstage captivates audiences, transcending popular music today with the power of his voice and guitar.
The Man & Woman of Year campaign ends with a Grand Finale on Thursday, June 15. Donations to Mary’s campaign can be made online and for more details or sponsorship opportunities, email Melissa Casafranca or call her at 908-956-6645.
