Kristen had the opportunity to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical this week at the Academy of Music, and the show was just that... Beautiful, and in more ways than one. Kristen absolutely loved every minute, every song and would recommend it to anyone. Listen as Kristen speaks with one of the stars of the show, Sarah Bockel who plays Carole King, then don't miss it! See it at the Academy of Music now through Sunday January 20th. Tickets at KimmelCenter.org.
Then, Kristen is joined in studio by two incredible women, Anna Stormer and Marie DiLauro who work tirelessly to provide a number of services to women veterans all over the area. The Veterans Multi-Service Center’s Womens Veterans Center in Philly is one of very few organizations like it in the country, dedicated to championing the growing needs of female veterans. The WVC is open to any veteran identifying as female. Their flagship Old City facility is a safe space for their members, and provides them with wide ranging support, including housing case management, assistance with immediate needs (meals, clothing, toiletry products), computer lab and a full calendar of fellowship activities.
The WVC is celebrating its 5th Anniversary with a birthday party to benefit the facility and the women veterans who use it. Join in the fun at the Independence Visitors Center on January 17th from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person, including appetizers and drinks, with all proceeds going directly back to the program. www.VMCenter.org for tickets and more information.
