MSSL and Macy’s

On Sunday September 17, 2017, MSSL collaborated with Macy’s to hold a fundraiser performance at the Walnut Creek Macy’s. The purpose of this fundraiser was to spread  the awareness of The Rett Syndrome, and raise money for a donation to the Katie Nues Foundation, an organization supporting research and help to girls affected by Rett Syndrome.

Thank you so much to all the lovely performers for sharing their musical talents and to Macy’s for helping MSSL make this happen! We would like to especially thank the following Macy’s representatives:

Maria: Store Manager
Emily: Assistant Manager
Maryanne: Cosmetic Manager
Balu: Dresses Manager
Elba: “my Stylist” @Macy’s

Thanks to all the donations from the generous shoppers passing by, $407 was raised to donate to the Katie Nues Foundation!
