Branden is ready for his close up!

As some of you may know, my brother Branden has always been a performer.  If he wasn't driving me nuts and imitating Michael Jackson or Ace Ventura around the house, he was on stage at Elmont Memorial High School, acting and singing his heart out for the entire community.  He continued to pursue his passions in college by studying theater and performing in various plays and musicals.  As we all know, when God knocks we must answer no matter how prepared we think we are. Very suddenly and recently Branden was accepted into an apprenticeship with the prestigious Aurora theater in Atlanta, GA.    This program fully immerses it's participants in all aspects of theater both on and off stage, comprable to a Masters program. Branden is excited for this opportunity to hone his craft and build a lasting and impactful career.  I am very proud of him, as I know many of you are.  However, the move away from home has presented some challenges and I'm hoping you all can help.  Branden has 8 more months of living and working in Atlanta and needs all the love and support you can show.  We will be forever grateful for any amount you can give.

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

Blessings and Love,
