The Greater Good: Kelly’s Angels fundraiser, Hudson Waterfront ideas sought
Kelly’s Angels fundraiser success
There was great success from a fundraiser to benefit Kelly’s Angels, a charitable organization created by NewsChannel 13’s Mark Mulholland in honor of his late wife, Kelly. Turning Pointe Dance Center in Latham raised more than $2,500 at a dance fundraising show at Cohoes High School. The event was organized by Estelle Porter, an accomplished young dancer, and her mom Lori – a friend of Kelly Mulholland. Kelly’s Angels provides grants to benefit children whose lives have been forever changed by the loss of a parent or sibling to cancer or other illness.
