Support the NWF Great American Backyard Campout

NWF Great American Backyard Campout, June 23 


My name is Elizabeth and I hope you will join me in support of the

National Wildlife Federation's Great American Backyard Campout!

Donations will be accepted until July 31, 2012


Let's play some GABC trivia! 

Question: What percentage of kids play outside daily?

A) 50%   B) 10%

C) 25%   D) 75%

Answer: C 25%

Yes, that is sadfully correct.  Only 25% of kids play outside daily—as opposed to 75% a generation ago!

On Saturday, June 23rd, I’ll be joining thousands of families across the country to help American children explore the great outdoors and take the first steps to happy, nature-filled, healthy lives.

National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Backyard Campout will provide an opportunity to open the door and spend a night filled with exploration and fun under the stars all while helping our nation’s kids!

That’s where you come in. NWF’s Great American Backyard Campout is family fun with a purpose: helping American kids benefit from outdoor time. By supporting my fundraising efforts, you can help raise awareness of the important work of NWF programs like Green Hour, Nature Find, Trees for the 21st Century, Certified Wildlife and Schoolyard Habitats that help get kids outside and connected with nature.

Find out how you can make a difference by visiting my personal fundraising page or join me along with the thousands of people who will gather in backyards, neighborhoods, communities and parks to take part in a night that can mark your family’s first step into a lifetime filled with healthy, outdoor fun.

Donations will be accepted through July 31 and are tax deducatible.

I would like to thank you in advance for your support!

Cutting out cancer at the Batavia City Centre

post by Rick Franclemont in Batavia City Centre, Cutting Out Cancer, fundraiser

Le Beau Salon and a host of others put on a carnival of beauty as a benefit for the Voltura family.

Nicole Voltura, a wife and mother of three, is dealing with not just one terminal illness, but three. She has recently undergone surgery to remove a sarcoma from her leg. On Oct. 7, she went for her fourth round of chemotherapy to treat two separate rare autoimmune diseases.

This benefit helped raise funds needed to offset some of the medical bills and to support the needs of her family.

Nicole is the owner of Glitz-n-Glamour Salon.

Among the many activities for the whole family were nail art, mini-manicures, hand facials, make-up technique sessions, bling hair extensions, eyebrow and lip waxing, blowouts, and face painting.

In addition, there was a Chinese auction, instruction in hip-hop dance techniques and a Zumba class.

Sponsers of the event included: Le Beau Salon, Suzanne's School of Dance, Hot Heads, The Mane Attraction Salon, Charley's Salon, Zumba with Diane Cox, Glitz-n-Glamour, and Tommy Nails.

For more information on how to make a donation please contact Erika Siverling at Le Beau Salon, 343-1017.
