Clark Student Leaps At The Chance to Dance For A Cause

Hanna Campiglia

CLARK, NJ —Hanna Campiglia has been swaying to the music since she first donned frilly rumba pants. Hanna also loves helping people. She’ll now get to combine her dance skills and kind spirit on stage at New York’s Gershwin Theater with well-known Broadway stars.  On June 20, Campiglia and her Cranford-based dance company will be part of five other performance companies also selected for the Arts for Autism concert to benefit Autism Speaks.

“I can’t wait,” admits Campiglia. “I’m not even sure what I’m really more excited about, because there are so many parts to it. I love getting on stage. I will have the chance to meet some famous people. But, the best part is that we’re all doing this for a cause.”

Campiglia enjoys participating in events for a cause and doing kind and compassionate things for others.   One look at Campiglia’s pixie hair style is evidence of one such act of benevolence.   Just last year she had waist length curls that she cut and donated, for the fourth time, to an organization that makes wigs for children.

 “There are children with cancer who are undergoing treatment. I know they lose their hair and can’t imagine what that’s like, said Campiglia.  

Campiglia, a rising sophomore at Clark’s Mother Seton High School remains active in her school and community.   “It’s all about the giving,” Campiglia said as she talked about the many opportunities to participate in outreach programs at her school.

Tickets are available for the Arts for Autism event. Join Tony award winning actress Kelli O’Hara as she takes to the stage for this special event. The show will be performed at the Gershwin Theater and tickets may be purchased by visiting Arts for Autism.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

After Bruce Patrson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered. At the the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
