I am in awe of the talented young people we have profiled in our show, Extraordinary. 

Central New York is home to so many gifted musicians, dancers, singers and other artists! 

Having extraordinary talent is a real gift. Paying for lessons, instruments and travel can be a real burden for families. In order for these young artists to reach their full potential, many of them need help. 

That's why I have started a scholarship fund for extraordinary talent. Please consider helping the next young star make his or her dreams come true.
