dinalexibAs some of you may know my mother, Dina Manzo, started her own non-profit foundation in 2007, Project Ladybug, to help children suffering with cancer. It’s a foundation very dear to my heart and I am extremely passionate about raising as much money as possible for these children. Through my volunteering with Project Ladybug I have had the opportunity and utmost pleasure to meet so many amazing kids who are suffering. Effortlessly these children lift the spirits of those around them despite their illness. I believe it is our duty to repay each and every children by donating our money and time to help provide the things they need/want but can’t have.

On November 11th 2013 Project Ladybug will be hosting a very special event, Goddess Night Out, at the Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey from 7pm-11pm. To support you can purchase tickets, donate baskets/money, advertise a business, and/or become a vendor! The night is going to be super fun and packed with several awesome celebs and spiritual women who are going to make the night unforgettable. The profits will go to the Project Ladybug funds at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ and Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York.  There will be a full dinner, dancing, raffles, a great swag bag, but most of all a room full of women coming together with open hearts!
