    Miracles For Madison: Wednesday, August 3rd at 7:00PM

    Hoboken, a very beautiful little girl needs your help. Please read: Local Barre staff member, Stephanie Cohen, and her husband, Matt, recently delivered baby Madison Rose to the world who was sadly, diagnosed with congenital heart disease (CHD) and Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome (HRHS). Even after undergoing multiple surgeries, Madison’s condition has worsened and she is now in need of a heart transplant. She is currently on the waiting list for a donor heart.

    This Wednesday beginning at 7PM, Local Barre will host a fundraising class outside on Maxwell Place Pier and in lieu of the class cost, they ask that you make a donation to Madison instead. We ask that you please spread the word about this class and attend if you’re able to. Sign up for class here once you sign up for the class you will be led to the donation screen. You can purchase multiple donations if you would like to donate more than the amount listed. Thank you so much for your support Hoboken!

    If you can’t attend the class but would still like to donate, please click here
