Michele Friedlander- Memorial award

WOW! We are coming up on 30 years of giving out the Michele Friedlander-Misetich Memorial award in theater arts! Michele's mother Sherry, her sister Brandy, Brother Michael, and friends Josh and Lindsey, have been instramental in giving away the award every year since she was taken from us too soon. Generous donations from family and friends have helped keep the monetary award going for some time, but that money is running out.  It would have already run out but Sherry has been paying for the plaque out of her own pocket for all 30 years. We would like to help keep Michele's memory alive by continuing her award for the next 30 years or more! Besides the plaque, a graduating senior who breathes drama and theater is given a check for 500$ and a space on the memorial plaque in the main office at Palisades High School. Those of us lucky enough to have expierienced Michele's personality know that it was a miracle that an earthly vessel could contain that much energy for as long as it did. Please consider a donation so she can keep touching people's lives that never were lucky enough to meet her. 

The Michele Friedlander-Misetich Memorial award is a non-profit so your donation is tax deductable. Tell all of your friends that didn't know Michele that you know where they can get a great tax break  : ) Rock out party people!
