  Description: The KEYS Program delivers music, hope and smiles to kids battling cancer, and those in need of healing, through music outreach, education and advocacy. KEYS provides patient support of bedside music, family respite days & sibling support programs to children battling cancer at no cost to the families they serve. Since 1993, KEYS has delivered just over 80,000 smiles!
  Profile: "In what seemed just a blink ago, I was in a hospital room helping my mother gently maneuver headphones on my father’s ears. My father’s journey with cancer was brief, and we knew he was nearing his time to leave us. We were just hoping music could help relax him, even just a little, and provide his body enough peace to be able to sleep after days of agitation and pain. Within an hour…he was asleep. As the nurses began asking what we had done to help calm and ease my father’s pain, we said, “We just played music.” That was the life-changing moment that has brought us here over 20 years later." -KEYS Founder, Colleen Bennett From that moment in November of 1993, the KEYS Program was born to help bring music, comfort, hope and smiles to kids going through the same difficult time, in memory of Colleen's father. Today, with the help of over 100 volunteers, the KEYS Program provides its award-winning patient support programs to children treated in 44 children's hospitals, special needs sites and hospice agencies across the US. Colleen has been recognized for her dedication to children receiving the Child Care Council of Cornell Cooperative Extensions Friend of Children Award, Who's Who Among American Women and the KEYS Program has been named one of the top 15 children's charities in the US by the Tony Stewart Foundation for the past 4 years.

  Description: Though hope exists for all of us, sometimes it must be found through others. The mission of Maureen's Hope is to offer support and assistance to people facing the challenges of cancer and other life threatening illness. There are many needs that patients have when faced with a life altering disease that can not be met by the medical community and we hope to fulfill some of those needs. Maureen's Hope caters to the personal needs of individuals facing these challenges by providing gift baskets and services that offer comfort and strength as well as helping to improve their quality of life. Maureen's Hope Foundation has been able to provide over 400 baskets to cancer patients over the past five years. We have also provided patients with a cleaning service for their home; meals for the family; a wig and/or hats; complementary therapy such as reiki or massage; and assistance with fundraising events to help families with medical expenses. Maureen's Hope also helps to empower and encourage people facing an illness by offering a variety of programs that offer hope, inspiration and education to patients. Guest speakers for these programs include motivational speakers, health care providers and community representatives. Maureen's Hope is funded through grants, corporate donations and fundraising events.
  Profile: In 2010 the Foundation sponsored a new program at the Golisano Children’s Hospital called “Beads of Hope” which gives children battling cancer a tangible way to mark their treatments and progress with a colorful string of beads.
  Featured Products or Services: Visit our brand new Inspirational Jewlery Store to help support the Maureen's Hope Foundation Secure Inspirational Jewelry Store. The story behind our bracelets have made them a meaningful gift to share with someone special and all proceeds benefit Maureen's Hope Foundation. While my sister Maureen was battling cancer she wore a fun and inspirational bracelet from Chicos throughout her journey. While she was wearing a less than flattering hospital gown her bracelet became a symbol of normalcy and represented the fun spirited person she was. May you get the same joy from your bracelet and let it bring out your Live, Love, Laugh attitude! Enjoy!

On the day of my wedding I was monogramming the last of the ornament favors and hand stamping the cocktail napkins when I realized that (not only was I addicted to crafting but) my work was done! I was inspired to help others with their wedding projects and also started making some unique monogrammed gifts. I loved seeing the joy when people received personalized items and I knew I needed to continue it! As the business grew so did my love for photography. I quickly realized I had a second passion and decided to start a second business.

  Description: JR Financial Solutions offers accounting services for small business owners. Our services include bookkeeping, tax returns, monthly reconciling, consulting, and Quickbooks training.
  Profile: I have over 5 years of experience in public accounting as well as private accounting. I have been exposed to large companies as well as small companies. My specialty is helping the small business owner. I like working one on one with the business owner and help them make well informed financial decisions. All of my clients are small businesses and most work on a budget. The reason I went into business is so that I can help the small business owner out at an affordable price so they do not have to pay the big firm prices. You dictate how often you want me to work with you. I have clients on a weekly, biweekly, monthly, and even quarterly basis. Some I only see at tax time. Setting up your books and maintaining them is one of the most important things you can do for your business. That way you can see what areas you might need to cut back on and maybe find more creative revenue avenues.

  Profile: Maria Filice, first-time author and food stylist, is a first-generation Canadian-American Italian. Maria grew up following her Calabrian family’s old country values. She learned from the best—her mother, grandmother, and aunts—whom she watched from the time she could barely walk. While she observed her relatives cooking together, with a little of this and a little of that, she listened well. Today, her relatives and friends are delighted as she entertains them in her kitchen with her storytelling and her cooking. In both her kitchen and her professional life, Maria’s philosophy is to live life to its fullest. Her lack of formal training cannot diminish her passion or dissuade her from taking risks with her cooking. In truth, her fresh eye has allowed her to excel. Her natural flair for food styling reflects her personal style and demonstrates how a simple recipe can look beautiful. Maria’s warmth, humor, and gregarious personality always make guests feel motivated to discover their own style in the kitchen. Today Maria Filice resides in Upstate NY as publisher of Telos Press, as well as publisher, author, and food stylist for Food and Fate Publishing.

They moved from there to Laci's at the Palace Theatre, then onto Laci's Burger Joint on James St. to Laci's Tapas Bar. It has been a great journey so far and I think there may still be more yet to come! We strive to personify 'customer service'. If you are not greeted with a smile and possibly by your first name (if we remember it) then you are probably not at Laci's. Each venture that we go into is a lesson from the last. We love people and we love food...there you have it.

  Description: I'm on a mission to transform the overwhelming college preparation and college application process into a meaningful, exciting, and empowering experience that gets young people into the right schools and makes it easier for them to excel once they're there. Students in my program have been accepted to Harvard, Yale, MIT, Princeton, Dartmouth, Stanford, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Northwestern, the University of Chicago, Rutgers, the University of Southern California, Boston University, Syracuse University, Babson, Northeastern, and many other great schools. I use the application form as the starting point for a major transformation that provides participants with eye-opening strategies for creating the kind of truly original application packages they need in order to gain a competitive edge. On an even deeper level, they learn how to take their writing to the next level; think about and present themselves in new, more mature ways; discover how to cultivate authentic connections with teachers; and much more. These are the types of skills that can make a huge difference in terms of their success in both high school and college, so its really never too early too start the program. I believe every motivated student deserves high-quality guidance through the college application process. Unfortunately, many schools do not have the resources to provide this type of assistance, and most families cannot afford to shell out thousands of dollars for private college consultants. That's why I'm committed to making Get Yourself Into College an affordable, easily accessible program.
