Christina Moore, the reigning Miss Brooklyn, has had three successful fundraisers benefiting the Sarcoma Alliance in the first half of this year. Proceeds from these events benefited the Sarcoma Alliance.

Combining her love of dance with her desire to raise sarcoma awareness in honor of her aunt Josephine Schiavo who was diagnosed with sarcoma in 2007, Christina developed “Performers with a Purpose: Bringing Sarcoma Awareness Center Stage”. She has implemented this unique program in three Brooklyn public schools. Christina has taught dance clinics and spread the joy of the arts to many students. Her efforts culminated in the May 7th fundraising benefit which featured her prized pupils as well as amateur and professional dancers, including dancers from the Alvin Ailey Dance Studio.

Please check back to see what she has in store for the Sarcoma Alliance in the second half of 2011. In the meantime, you can also make a donation in honor of Christina and Josephine!
