    Show Notes:

    Today’s episode of City Talk is sponsored by my friend Amber Howland of Dragonfly Media. She’ll share how families with a rare disease often feel helpless and forgotten during crises like COVID-19. Amber will also talk about the Project8p Foundation, an organization focusing on creating a path to treatment for chromosome 8p disorders through research, community, and intelligent information.

    Given everything that’s happening right now, I thought we needed a bit of music from Sandi McCrossin, one of my favorite Placerville musicians. Sandi is an amazing friend who always knows just what to say, so listen in.

    Next up is Kay & Shi who will be launching theirFeed The Local Need Live-Athon, an initiative designed to showcase how we can, even sheltering in place in our homes, raise awareness to the fact that many local businesses all over the nation have had to make adjustments to stay afloat, and that lots of individuals have had to do the same to stay intellectually and socially stimulated! They’ll be showcasing all sort of ways you can #FeedTheLocalNeed. Bonus Wine & Charcuterie from Engine 8 Urban Winery in Sparks, Nevada. Thank you to Wendi and Mike Rawson.

    During these trying times it’s so crucial we stay connected. I hope that I can help you do just that in today’s episode!

    Tune is next week as my good friend Elizabeth Trosper with Trosper Public Relations will talk about how our Social Media Managers are handling all of the stress. .

    Together we shall either find a way or make one.”
