I have been active in fundraising and continuing education events over the past several decades. This passion started back in the 1990′s with the formation of my bird club. Many of the fundraising events have benefited the Alex Foundation but other recipients have been Popcorn Park Zoo, numerous sanctuaries & rescues, clubs, PDD research with Dr Branson Ritchie and various animal hospitals. My involvement in some events have been but not limited to: volunteering man hours, donating funds, served as personal assistants, aided in transportation & lodging, inviting key note speakers, providing media handouts, booking reservations of attendees, filming of events, Master of Ceremonies, hostess or chaired events or being featured as the Key Note Speaker.
