Lip Syncing for a Cause Event bringing hope for seniors

There may not be a better feeling than pretending to be someone—or something—else. Children often do that hoping to become that as adults. There is no shortage of imagination or using the mind to for its creativity and illusion.

So, when a group of long-term care employees are gearing up for a night of fun and entertainment—that features costume changes, makeup and acting out their musical fantasies—that means the Fourth Annual Lip Sync Battle is coming to not only please the crowd, but to raise funds to grant wishes for those residents they care for in the nursing facilities statewide!

Women in Business Retreat Coming to Providence Three-day event focuses on empowerment, faith, and team building

Many people who either start a new company or look for an opportunity are often beset by numerous challenges. They may be unaware of the resources available to them, such as local networking groups, Chambers of Commerce or business agencies that can direct them to other sources. Those who are not connected can fall behind and/or feel overwhelmed by the sheer effort it can take to make such dreams real.

Women might be limited in their quests to excel because they lack the contact or know where to look for help. While there are many ways to obtain information (such as the activities mentioned above or contacting state agencies for details), they could feel alone and without a direction–until now.
