I Met Tina Pansini, sister of the late Vicky Corral at the Tomato Festival a few weeks ago. Tina contacted me shortly after, sharing with me her family’s mission for their non-profit, the Vicky C. Hope Foundation in honor of her sister. Tina invited me to honor her sister at their annual fundraiser, The Festival of Hope at Andrews Park in Vacaville, CA. by having a booth for How Far Will I Run and Little Wing Connections. The event was held today, and even though it was a smaller event, I felt it was very important that I was there. I was impressed with this family’s passion and fire for their mission. Through my life work, I interact with various non-profits and I watch how the mission of these non -profits sometimes get lost under all the resume building of their members. I was honored to be apart of this event in the fight against domestic violence and hope to have been a contribution in any way to help anyone in the audience see their true light.
