The magic of the Release the Butterfly Tour continued as it traveled to its third location, Johnsonburgh Pennsylvania on October 17. Hosted by FIRST members Tracie and Bailey Pretak,  there were over 80 people in attendance, including eight families affected by ichthyosis. Attendees learned about ichthyosis through the signature segment, “Behind the Butterflies.” Panelists included Bailey Pretak, Abby Evans and Mikela Murphy. Joining the group, were Kelly Walters and Angelo Mantione. These five individuals answered questions about ichthyosis and their daily skin-care.

The evening raised over $2,500 from a love offering and auction. The entire 3-show tour has raised more than $7,300 for FIRST. We are so very grateful to the Pretaks for their steadfast enthusiasm for the mission of FIRST. We’d like to also offer a special note of gratitude to all who participated in their spectacular Release the Butterfly event! Your support makes all the difference.

The Pretaks continued their fundraising streak by holding a Premier Party Design at their home on November 14. Portions of the sale benefited FIRST. Thanks to all the baubles and sparkles purchased by their friends and family, the Pretaks raised over $185 through their fundraiser.
