Sip and Savour – Myers Park Gallery Crawl Benefiting “Melissa’s Voice”

I am happily donating my photography services this Saturday night in support of my friend, Lynn, who lost her sister, Melissa, to a life long battle with an eating disorder that ultimately claimed Melissa’s life. I am honored to participate in such a special night that will hopefully raise boo coos of money for the Hope Scholarship which provides financial support to those battling eating disorders who can not afford the treatment they so desperately need. Read more about Lynn’s story below. Hope to see you there!

Melissa’s Voice Foundation Founder Lynn Dreyer watched Melissa, her beautiful sister and her very best friend in the world, journal the last words “Life is Worth Living” on a beautiful Halloween morning in 2007. Later that afternoon Lynn kissed and hugged Melissa goodbye and left to run some errands only to return to a harsh reality, Melissa had committed suicide. She took her life at the age of 46 after her life long battle with an eating disorder.
Melissa battled her eating disorder in silence for many years and it ultimately took its toll on her physical and mental health. Lynn was the last person to hear Melissa’s voice and believes in her heart that Melissa would want those challenged with an eating disorder to get support from their family and friends, reach out for treatment and most of all find a way to love and respect their body as life’s greatest gift.
Lynn created Melissa’s Voice Foundation (501c3) to bring a voice to those battling eating disorders, raise community awareness to available resources and to fund the HOPE Scholarship to help those in crisis, with no means to pay, access treatment. Join Lynn and over 40 corporate and community sponsors and wonderful patrons out for an evening of Wine Tastings, Cuisine Sampling, Exquisite Art, and Music and After Crawl Shopping to make a difference and save lives of those battling eating disorders. Join the 3rd annual SIP & SAVOUR Myers Park Gallery Crawl.
