Monroe native involved in organizing benefit concert for those with special needs

A Monroe native is involved in organizing the fourth annual National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association Benefit Concert at 3 p.m. on April 8 at Misericordia University in Dallas, Pennsylvania.

NSSLHA officers who organized the benefit are Alexis D’Amico of Riverside, vice president; Samantha Olcott of Monroe, treasurer; Megan Kieltyka of Scotch Plains, secretary; and Jenna Reed of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, president.

The concert features Beyond Harmony, the university’s female a capella group, performing various hit songs by popular artists. Misericordia’s Dance Ensemble will also perform a variety of creative dance routines.

Proceeds from the event will help local individuals with special needs who receive speech, occupational or physical therapy at St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Anyone who would like to support the cause but is unable to attend can mail a check to Misericordia University Speech-Language Hearing Center, Attn: NSSLHA Benefit Concert, John J. Passan Hall, 100 Lake St., Dallas, Pa. 18612.
