    PLYMOUTH —Kelsey Piper and Suzanna Derynioski have been working hard with more than 30 local dancers in anticipation for the upcoming Third Annual Dance to Make a Difference.

    Dancers from all across the state have been meeting each week to rehearse for the Aug. 2 performance taking place at Plymouth Regional High School at 7 p.m. All of the dancers have dedicated their time and energy in support of the Faith, Hope and Love Foundation, a local non-profit that strives to bring relief to New Hampshire youth struggling from homelessness, poverty or hunger.

    Suzanna Derynioski, a recent graduate from Plymouth State University, commented, “It’s not every day you get to do what you love and help people while doing it!”

    Kelsey Piper, also a recent graduate from Plymouth State University, added, “We are really excited to be doing the show again.”

    As the dancers practice for the performance, the Faith, Hope and Love Foundation is grateful to have members of the community looking to positively impact local youth.

    Current President for FHL Lara Gruner comments, “It is so encouraging and inspiring to see Kelsey and Suzanna, along with all the dancers, use their true talent to help others; it is energy like theirs that helps make our world a brighter place.”

    Tickets for the Third Annual Dance to Make a Difference are available to be reserved by emailing nhdancemovement@gmail.com. Tickets may also be purchased at the door the day of the event at Plymouth Regional High School. All proceeds go to the Faith, Hope and Love Foundation.

    FHL was founded in 2006 by Laura Brusseau and Jessica Dutille to address the overwhelming needs of today’s youth and help those suffering from hunger, homelessness and poverty, and to bring them faith through hope and love. Up next for FHL is volunteering at the Timberman Triathlon and its first-ever Yard Sale!
