The Healing Project Wishes to Thank All the Participants in Making the Summertime Silent Auction a Success

More than 125 supporters attended our inaugural fundraising event for The Healing Project (THP). We are still tallying results, but THP has already established it was a great success.

The evening was hosted by Melissa Marr, THP's President, Debra Lachance, THP's Founder, and Debbie Johnson, General Manager of GreeneStreet Films (GSF).

An auction would not be an autcion without our donors, and THP would like to thank them all:

Wright Relaxation Studio, Casini Firenze, Antonio Prieto Salon , Discovery Wines, Farrah Yurdozu, Nelsie Spencer, Sons & Daughters, Michael George, Steffani Aarons & DHD, David Howell & DHD, The Limited, Melissa Marr, New York Philharmonic, Robert Mark , Pierre Rovira , Arlene & Avrom Doft , Gym Sports Bar , Matt Mulhern, Rebecca Miller, John Penotti, Fisher Stevens, GreeneStreet Films, IFC Film Center, Tony Conway, Kate Rudin, Andrea Lorimor, Adele Lonas, Jolie Guy, Lori Benson, Unleash Marketing, Leah Esposito, The Schatten Group, Printing House Fitness and Squash Club, Joe Maysonet, Sarah Lewis, Francesca Paik, and Sharon Ludke.

The Healing Project is especially grateful to GreeneStreet Films for providing its production facility to hold the auction. We would like to single out John Penotti and Fisher Stevens, the co-founders of GSF, not only for being kind enough to offer their company's space but also to be listed as an auction item.

100% of the funds raised at the Summertime Silent Auction will be used to develop and launch Voices Who Care.

“Voices Who Care” is a global online community designed to allow individuals coping with life-threatening or chronic debilitating illnesses to meet online, share experiences and perspectives, offer and receive advice. Emotional and social support is essential for those faced with health-related challenges and membership to this Network is free and open to anyone who wants to join: patients, caregivers, family members, medical professionals, friends. Voices Who Care provides its members with the ability to connect, make friends, share perspective, gain insight and stay in touch.“Voices Who Care” will allow individuals to communicate through email and will be capable of accommodating multiple users in multiple countries. Individuals utilizing the network will be able to conduct searches to locate, for example, other individuals combating the same or similar illnesses, receiving a particular course of treatment or receiving treatment in particular hospitals or treatment/hospice centers. Anticipated launch is September 2007.
