Benefit events planned to help family of Nina Poeta

This message is from Elizabeth Pisano, family friend of the Poeta family of Seymour, who recently lost their daughter, Nina, to an inoperable brain tumor:

With thousands of people who attended the services for Nina, the Poeta Family said goodbye, for now, to their precious angel. The pain they are feeling is profound and will be with them forever. We, as a community, are feeling helpless trying to find a way to show our love and support for John, Dorie, & Cara. Please join Poeta Strong in continuing the mission to help the family as much as we can. Our efforts will be redirected as their needs change and right now we think they need our comfort and our help with the expenses of the past year. Sunday, the 16th is "A Day of Healing" at Phoenix Yoga; tickets are available for the "Benefit Dinner for the Poeta Family" on November 21st; Apparel and bracelets will continue to be available to honor Nina. The Seymour High School Cheerleaders are hosting a dance, "Bring It On For Nina" on November 28th for the Cheer Family throughout the state. If you would like more information on any events or to donate a raffle or auction item for the Benefit Dinner, please call Elizabeth Pisano at 203-415-4387, message Poeta Strong on facebook, or email

We are the thousands and WE ARE POETA STRONG!
