Help Our Friend Colette Hailey

Hurricane Sally blew ashore along coastal Alabama and Florida's Panhandle as a Category 2 early on Wednesday. In Orange Beach, coastal neighborhoods are still covered by water hours after the storm. Our friend and colleague, Colette Hailey, had to leave her home and find shelter with a friend to ride out the storm out of harm's way. Fortunately, Colette is safe, but her house is completely flooded and will need a lot of work before it is inhabitable once again. Please consider donating  to this fund. All funds will go towards helping Colette cover insurance, restoration and housing costs while she's getting back on her feet. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Leah Sokolowsky and I am a friend of Colette's. I met Colette over twenty years ago and have had the pleasure of working with her on numerous films and TV shows that have filmed here in South Florida. I consider her a dear friend and mentor.
