Description

Join us for an evening of music in celebration of two fantastic candidates running for the VA House, Wendy Gooditis and Shelly Simonds, featuring Westchester's own, Avalanche.

A minimum $25 donation per person is requested but not required. Please RSVP through this page if you plan to attend; donations can be made here.

About Wendy Gooditis and Shelly Simonds:

Wendy Gooditis is a career educator who won her first campaign in 2017 against a popular Republican incumbent in a very close race. Wendy is facing a tough race in 2019 against the Republican she defeated in 2017, and her reelection is critical to Democrats flipping the VA House in November.

Shelly Simonds is also a career educator and a 2017 Sister District alumna, but she was denied a victory in 2017, due to interference from Republicans that caused her to lose in a coin toss. Undeterred, Shelly immediately announced her candidacy for 2019.

About Avalanche:

Avalanche is a Westchester-based folk-pop band known for our vibrant vocal harmonies and engaging original songs. We've performed and recorded in the area for over ten years--singing and playing our own tunes, plus familiar songs from the Great American Songbook and the archives of rock and jazz. Avalanche (Dana Celestino, Paul Gross, Diane Guernsey and Liz Loglisci) has performed at the Common Ground Coffeehouse, at the New Rochelle Jazz Festival, at Moonlight on the Ave and Bar'Lees in Mamaroneck, at Prime 16 in Pelham and at the Watercolor Cafe in Larchmont. We're at work on our second CD.
