Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page! Please join me in supporting MENTOR Rhode Island, an amazing organization committed to ensuring youth have access to the motivational and supportive relationships they need to grow into confident, successful adults. Read more about why this organization is so important to me below:

Think about YOUR childhood and adolescence. Did you every feel lonely, or vulnerable? Maybe you lost a parent, or your best friend moved away, or you started a new school. Or maybe you felt vulnerable just navigating the transition to young adulthood. In ninth grade, I opted into a local mentorship program through my high school in Massachusetts. At the time I didn't have many friends and had extremely low self-esteem. I was sure that meeting a person who had survived high school and came out the other side would bring me some comfort. The mentor I was assigned to ended up dropping out of the program without warning and given how fragile I was at the time, this was pretty devastating. It is for this reason I have chosen to become a mentor through MENTOR Rhode Island: to serve as a solid, consistent confidant, cheerleader, and friend to a middle schooler.

MENTOR Rhode Island is a non-profit and can only do the incredible work they do through the support of donors like YOU!

I will be working with a professional ballroom dancer for 10 weeks in preparation for the fundraising event of the year: A "Dancing With the Stars" style ballroom competition held in March. I am after the coveted People's Choice award--given to the dancer with the most votes. $1 = 1 vote, so vote EARLY and vote OFTEN! If you want to see me win it all, donate big! For information on attending the competition (which includes a plated dinner, a silent auction, seats to the coolest ballroom dance competition around, and more) please reach out to me so I can get you a seat at my table!

Thank you!
