Local Paparazzi Consultants to Host Pediatric Hydrocephalus Fund-raiser

EASTHAMPTON — Denise Sacharczyk and Mary Ann Hanlon, local independent consultants for Paparazzi Accessories, announced they will be hosting a fund-raiser to benefit the Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation (PHF).

Sacharczyk and Hanlon invite all to attend their Blingo Bingo event on Sunday, April 23 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the American Legion Post 224, 190 Pleasant St., Easthampton. Admission is $15 for an afternoon of jewelry and fun while raising money for the Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation.

The mission of the Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation is to educate the community by raising the level of awareness about this brain condition. The PHF will also provide support to the families, friends, and children who are diagnosed with hydrocephalus. The PHF will raise money for and work with the medical community in searching for a cure and additional treatment options for those with hydrocephalus.

The PHF is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and, as such, all contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Additionally, the PHF advocates on behalf of the members of the hydrocephalus community and works with policy makers at the state and federal levels to raise awareness and push for more research and support in the fight against hydrocephalus. The PHF will be holding fund-raising events to accomplish the goals stated above.

Paparazzi products are lead-free and nickel-free, featuring original, one-of-a-kind design, style, and feel, and are always changing. They are available only through consultants.
