WOONSOCKET â€“ Two tart-tongued female impersonators will dish up an evening of Vegas-style song, dance and comedy in the Milk Fundâ€™s first fundraiser of the year at the Coachmenâ€™s Lodge in Bellingham on Nov. 9.
The featured performers are Kitty Litter and Sabrina Blaze, aka Stephen Hartley and Wayne Alan Hawkins. Theyâ€™ve been selling out theater venues with their cross-dressing schtick and comic banter for years, including a number of shows in the local area.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Losing a family member to illness can leave a person feeling helpless, which hinders the process of coming to terms with that life-changing loss.
But there are ways to take proactive steps toward moving on, which also bring a sense of fighting back.
Noneajean McFarlane found that to be true this fall as she worked to organize a team in Sundayâ€™s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Roger Williams Park in Providence.
McFarlane, a Call graphic designer, decided to put together a team for the American Cancer Society fundraiser in light of her own losses last spring.
