  Description: The KEYS Program delivers music, hope and smiles to kids battling cancer, and those in need of healing, through music outreach, education and advocacy. KEYS provides patient support of bedside music, family respite days & sibling support programs to children battling cancer at no cost to the families they serve. Since 1993, KEYS has delivered just over 80,000 smiles!
  Profile: "In what seemed just a blink ago, I was in a hospital room helping my mother gently maneuver headphones on my father’s ears. My father’s journey with cancer was brief, and we knew he was nearing his time to leave us. We were just hoping music could help relax him, even just a little, and provide his body enough peace to be able to sleep after days of agitation and pain. Within an hour…he was asleep. As the nurses began asking what we had done to help calm and ease my father’s pain, we said, “We just played music.” That was the life-changing moment that has brought us here over 20 years later." -KEYS Founder, Colleen Bennett From that moment in November of 1993, the KEYS Program was born to help bring music, comfort, hope and smiles to kids going through the same difficult time, in memory of Colleen's father. Today, with the help of over 100 volunteers, the KEYS Program provides its award-winning patient support programs to children treated in 44 children's hospitals, special needs sites and hospice agencies across the US. Colleen has been recognized for her dedication to children receiving the Child Care Council of Cornell Cooperative Extensions Friend of Children Award, Who's Who Among American Women and the KEYS Program has been named one of the top 15 children's charities in the US by the Tony Stewart Foundation for the past 4 years.

  Description: Though hope exists for all of us, sometimes it must be found through others. The mission of Maureen's Hope is to offer support and assistance to people facing the challenges of cancer and other life threatening illness. There are many needs that patients have when faced with a life altering disease that can not be met by the medical community and we hope to fulfill some of those needs. Maureen's Hope caters to the personal needs of individuals facing these challenges by providing gift baskets and services that offer comfort and strength as well as helping to improve their quality of life. Maureen's Hope Foundation has been able to provide over 400 baskets to cancer patients over the past five years. We have also provided patients with a cleaning service for their home; meals for the family; a wig and/or hats; complementary therapy such as reiki or massage; and assistance with fundraising events to help families with medical expenses. Maureen's Hope also helps to empower and encourage people facing an illness by offering a variety of programs that offer hope, inspiration and education to patients. Guest speakers for these programs include motivational speakers, health care providers and community representatives. Maureen's Hope is funded through grants, corporate donations and fundraising events.
  Profile: In 2010 the Foundation sponsored a new program at the Golisano Children’s Hospital called “Beads of Hope” which gives children battling cancer a tangible way to mark their treatments and progress with a colorful string of beads.
  Featured Products or Services: Visit our brand new Inspirational Jewlery Store to help support the Maureen's Hope Foundation Secure Inspirational Jewelry Store. The story behind our bracelets have made them a meaningful gift to share with someone special and all proceeds benefit Maureen's Hope Foundation. While my sister Maureen was battling cancer she wore a fun and inspirational bracelet from Chicos throughout her journey. While she was wearing a less than flattering hospital gown her bracelet became a symbol of normalcy and represented the fun spirited person she was. May you get the same joy from your bracelet and let it bring out your Live, Love, Laugh attitude! Enjoy!

  Description: Wholly Education is dedicated to empowering people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind and spirit.
  Profile: My name is Jody Brown and my business is called Wholly Education. The name comes from when I discovered that the three words heal, whole, and holy all come from the same root word, the old English word hal. That means that there was a time when those three concepts were so intertwined that we only needed one word to describe them all. I have wondered how the concepts became so dis-integrated, but I am encouraged by how with today’s holistic approach we are integrating them back together. So Wholly Education is a play on those words. My mission with Wholly Education is to empower people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind, and spirit and I offer a wide range of services to accomplish this. I lead meditation classes as well as Health Coaching, Reiki, and Women’s Retreats called Journey to Inner Peace. Additionally, I help people with rites of passage as a non-denominational wedding officiant specializing in non-traditional and custom wedding ceremonies. As if that weren’t enough, I also teach piano using the Suzuki Method.

  Description: TRM provides direction and leadership expertise for designers and owners in the environmental and construction industries, so they achieve maximum value for their investment. We are a New York State Certified Women owned company.
  Profile: TRM provides Trustworthy Representation and Management for your field work as your Construction Manager/Owner’s Authorized Representative (CM/OAR). We provide direction and leadership expertise for designers and owners in the environmental and construction industries, so they achieve maximum value for their investment. TRM is typically engaged by busy Owners/Designers looking for maximum value from their investment thru environmental compliance and monitoring of field activities. TRM provides: • Regulatory supportive and economically sound environmental solutions • Clear and concise summaries of field conditions associated with horizontal construction activities by a staff of engineers trained to ensure a quality product consistent with the scope of work with a long history of working with or as regulators and industry knowledge from implementing solutions. TRM has a proven process for serving as your eyes and ears through photographic documentation and detailed daily work summaries of construction activity allowing for rapid identification and resolution of unforeseen conditions in order to support budget and schedule control as well as project closeout. One repair, of one line in a road (storm, sewer, or water), can easily cost $25,000/day as compared to our fees which are less than 5% of that per day. Unlike other environmental and construction inspection firms, we have flexible staffing solutions and over 30 years of regulatory and construction experience that allows us to propose options for field related challenges. Our team establishes partnerships with the design team, field staff, and the effected community. We like to focus on the five keys: • culture of collaboration – a team focus on delivering value • participation in scheduling – planning to aid in work coordination • choose by advantage – support for decision making with multiple stakeholders • conditions of satisfaction – focus on shared project goals beyond cost and schedule and environmental compliance • target value design – focus on cost as a parameter in design to reduce design rework, and sustainable environmental alternatives

  Description: *Our Vision: a just and sustainable world in which children thrive, contribute their gifts and find love, joy, and fulfillment. *Our Focus: dynamic parents and others committed to kids and to learning and expanding their capacities to manage the challenges of raising children in today's world.
  Profile: In my work as a psychotherapist, women's workshop leader and executive coach, I bring a wholistic perspective and understanding of the possibility and contribution of each and everyone. Also, having been a working mother and now a grandmother I know that no matter one's career, if you are a parent the issues of raising your kids are always in the back of your mind. Having concise, easy access to the wealth of new information on raising happy, mindful, kind and grateful kids who are connected to nature is critical for parents, grandparents, educators, therapists, life coaches and anyone concerned about the future for our children. Because of my huge commitment to the environment, and to youth, I volunteer for the Onondaga Earth Corps, a program for youth empowerment through environmental work. It is my hope that we will have a healthy planet for all kids and that they will learn to care for the earth and to be grateful for all of it's gifts.
  Featured Products or Services: * "Mastering the Art of Raising Great Kids" An online course with a wholistic approach to parenting. "Hooray for Parenting" Book and workbook for parents, grandparents, therapists ,life coaches, educators Thank You Note Kit for kids- Locally printed, eco-friendly thank you cards and stickers. *Custom designed Birthday Invitations that inspire eco-friendly parties. * A small, beautifully designed poster with the Onondaga Thanksgiving address.

  Description: Food and Fate Publishing is an imprint of Telos Press. I am the publisher, and time author, foodstylist "Breaking Bread in L'Aquila". Net profits of my book will be donated to the earthquake hometown of my late husband.
  Profile: Maria Filice, first-time author and food stylist, is a first-generation Canadian-American Italian. Maria grew up following her Calabrian family’s old country values. She learned from the best—her mother, grandmother, and aunts—whom she watched from the time she could barely walk. While she observed her relatives cooking together, with a little of this and a little of that, she listened well. Today, her relatives and friends are delighted as she entertains them in her kitchen with her storytelling and her cooking. In both her kitchen and her professional life, Maria’s philosophy is to live life to its fullest. Her lack of formal training cannot diminish her passion or dissuade her from taking risks with her cooking. In truth, her fresh eye has allowed her to excel. Her natural flair for food styling reflects her personal style and demonstrates how a simple recipe can look beautiful. Maria’s warmth, humor, and gregarious personality always make guests feel motivated to discover their own style in the kitchen. Today Maria Filice resides in Upstate NY as publisher of Telos Press, as well as publisher, author, and food stylist for Food and Fate Publishing.
  Featured Products or Services: Italian trattoria-style cookbook entitled: Breaking Bread in L'Aquila.

Desired Markets: Local, Regional
  Description: Planning, decorating & one-stop shopping for all the special occasions on your calendar! Catering offered for small events <50 or less ppl.>.
  Profile: Linda uses her 20+ years restaurant and corporate meeting services background to help you plan an event where you can relax. She opened in 2000 after recognizing that having weddings and other gatherings were far too expensive; she was determined to do something about that. When displaying at local events to talk about the services and merchandise she offered, she almost never let the word “no” come out of her mouth in response to questions about planning, decorating or shopping for other items. If she didn’t have “it”, she found “it” or made “it” herself. Attention to detail, careful planning, and a keen interest to shop for unique dresses and other gift merchandise drives her to the NYC, Chicago, Atlanta, and Las Vegas bridal and gift markets periodically. Always keeping in mind her customer’s needs and budget, Linda can be counted on to keep expenses in line, and still achieve the desired goal. Two of the best things about her home-based studio is that customers receive 1:1 personal attention at their appointments, and that she offers evening & weekend appointments to work around their busy schedules.
  Featured Products or Services: Bridal apparel for the entire party; communion, special occasion dresses, gifts, jewelry, shoes, invitations, accessories, veils, reception items, rental décor, planning & decorating services.
