Blood Donors Needed!

Miller-Keystone Blood Center has issued an urgent appeal for donors of all Blood types and platelets. “Blood donations traditionally decrease during the summer months due to family vacations and high schools/colleges being on break,” explained Deb Otto, Director of Donor Resources. “These factors, combined with several critical traumas that have occurred in our region over the past few days, have significantly impacted our community’s Blood supply.”


“The ideal Blood inventory on our shelves should be a three-day supply, or approximately 1500 units,” she notes. “At this time, we are only at about 700 units, which is less than half of our desired inventory level.” “More than 450 donors are needed every day in our community to help in the care of cancer patients, accident victims, premature infants and others in need of life-saving transfusions at our regional hospitals," adds Sean Tinney, Director of Marketing & Business Development. “While we’ve had a decrease in the number of people donating, the demand at our hospitals remains steady. We would just like to remind people that Blood cannot be manufactured, it can only come from the kind generosity of volunteer Blood donors. If there was ever a time to
donate, now is that time.”


It can take up to 50 units of Blood to help someone in a car accident, and up to 8 units to help someone with internal bleeding. It can also take up to 8 units a week to help someone battling leukemia. In order to donate, individuals must be 17 years of age or older, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be feeling healthy; they must not have donated in the past eight weeks. All donors must also provide valid identification; ID must have the donor’s name printed on it, as well as a photo and/or signature. For more information or to schedule a donation, call 1-800-B-A-DONOR (223-6667). Donors can also visit GIVEaPINT.org to schedule an appointment online or find a Blood Drive in their community.

Linny Awards

For more than a quarter-century, Marlene ‘Linny’ Fowler of Bethlehem worked tirelessly to elevate the Lehigh Valley’s arts organizations and artists through her volunteerism and her support. Now, the region has the opportunity to celebrate this flourishing arts community and honor Fowler’s memory by taking part in the Linny Awards, a new multi-discipline arts awards program focused on the greater Lehigh Valley’s artists, innovators and arts leaders.


The inaugural Linny Awards presented by Cornerstone Advisors will be presented Nov. 10, 6 p.m., at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, with all proceeds from the event going to support the nonprofit ArtsQuest Foundation, founded in 2002 by Mrs. Fowler. From now through June 3, the public is invited to nominate artists, individuals and businesses at artsquestfoundation.org for consideration in eight different award categories including Visual Artist of the Year, Performing Artist of the Year, Educator of the Year, Emerging Artist of the Year and Philanthropy in the Arts.  All submissions will be reviewed by the Linny Awards Selection Committee, with winners announced the week of June 20. Complete details on categories and submission guidelines are available at artsquestfoundation.org.


In addition to the honorees chosen by the selection committee, the ArtsQuest Foundation Board will present three prestigious awards that recognize distinguished individuals from the region for their longtime commitment and dedication to the arts. The recipients of these awards - the Lifetime Achievement Artist Award, Lifetime Achievement Volunteer Award and the Pinnacle of the Arts Award - will be announced later this spring.


“The arts have long been a significant contributor to the culture, economy and quality of life in the Lehigh Valley,” says ArtsQuest Foundation Executive Director Jeff Parks. “The Linny Awards are designed to celebrate this culture of creativity by recognizing the artists, arts educators, businesses and philanthropists who live, work and support the arts in our region.


“One of the primary reasons the arts are thriving in our area is the support of Marlene ‘Linny’ Fowler. A longtime member of the ArtsQuest Foundation Board, Linny supported so many arts programs and organizations in our region over the decades. In addition to serving on the boards of arts organizations such as the Allentown Art Museum, Baum School of Art, State Theatre and ArtsQuest, she was a mentor to many artists and was actively involved in a number of arts programs benefitting our young people, so it’s fitting that these awards are named in her honor.” 


As part of the Linny Awards, the ArtsQuest Foundation will also recognize the creativity and support of the region’s business community through two special honors. The first, the Excellence in Product Design Award, will honor one Lehigh Valley-based business or corporation for the quality, innovativeness and creativity of its goods and products. The second, the Business Supporter of the Arts Award, will be presented to one small, one medium and one large-sized business (three in all) for their long-term support of the arts.


Thanks to a partnership with Penn State Lehigh Valley, the Linnys will also present a $1,500 scholarship to Penn State Lehigh Valley to one local student planning to major in Arts Administration. The award, which will be presented annually, is open to students in 11th and 12th grades.


Members of the Linny Awards Selection Committee for 2016 include MKSD Architects Associate Partner Todd Chambers, Quadrant Private Wealth Director of Business Advisory Services Dan Crowley, Broadway and television actress and director Lynnie Godfrey, Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce Sr. Vice President of Allentown Initiatives Miriam Huertas, The Elucidator Publisher and Connexions Gallery Curator/Manager Anthony Marraccini, Musselman Advertising President Jamie Musselman, ArtsQuest Foundation Executive Director Jeff Parks, DANCENOW New York Artistic Director and Producer Robin Staff and Lehigh University Director of Arts Engagement and Community Cultural Affairs Silagh White.


Linny Award nominations may be submitted for artists, organizations and businesses in Lehigh, Northampton, Upper Bucks and Upper Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania, as well as Warren County in New Jersey.  Tickets for the Linny Awards Ceremony will go on sale to the public later this spring, with all proceeds from the event going to support the ArtsQuest Foundation, established to strengthen the long-term sustainability of ArtsQuest, the nonprofit that presents Musikfest and more than 2,200 other programs, events and educational classes annually.


“ArtsQuest continues to expand access to the arts and arts programming in our region with each passing year,” says ArtsQuest Foundation Board Chair Jack Yaissle. “Amazingly, nearly 70 percent of the organization’s arts and cultural programs remain free for our community to attend. This annual awards ceremony not only celebrates our diverse arts community, it will also help raise much-needed revenues for our endowment funds supporting ArtsQuest, which now has an economic impact on our region of more than $117 million annually.”

The inaugural Linny Award categories are:


Honoring a Lehigh Valley visual artist whose work embodies excellence in its field. This category includes but is not limited to two- and three-dimensional visual arts such as painting, sculpture, digital, fiber, glass, ceramics, jewelry, metal and photography, as well as designers of fashion, musical instruments, furniture and other handcrafted works.

The $1,500 Penn State Lehigh Valley Scholarship Award will be presented annually to one student in the region who demonstrates significant talent and promise in the visual, literary or performing arts and is looking to pursue a degree in Arts Administration. High school juniors and seniors are eligible for this award.


The following three awards will be selected by the ArtsQuest Foundation Board:

This prestigious award is presented to an individual who has lived or currently resides in the Lehigh Valley and has achieved national or international distinction in the visual, literary or performing arts.


Celebrating an artist whose work in the arts symbolizes the highest level of excellence, commitment and achievement in his/her field over a period of 20 years or more. This award is presented annually to an individual who has made significant, longtime contributions to the visual, literary or performing arts.

Two of Easton’s DJs will help you relive the days by spinning tunes from those times and up until Madonna took over the airways. Easton’s Mayor Sal Panto and Easton DJ Brad F. Scott are splitting duties for the night, doubling the fun of the party.

About Third Street Alliance for Women & Children
Third Street Alliance for Women & Children strives to improve the quality of life for members of the community by providing both services to meet the basic needs of individuals and families and tools to promote personal development.
We are an established 501(c)(3) non-profit human services agency governed by a Board of Directors in historic down-town Easton, serving the greater Easton area and surrounding Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, as well as Warren and Hunterdon Counties in New Jersey. Incorporated in 1909 as a YWCA, the agency has been committed to meeting the critical needs of the community as advocates for women’s issues and workers for social and economic change.
In the 1980’s we shifted our focus to human service needs and began to shelter homeless women and children, provide child care for low-income families, and adult day services for seniors. In 1994 Third Street Alliance spun off from the national YWCA; today, we continue to focus on issues critical to women, children and families, including the problems of homelessness, child care for working families, and the care of older adults.

Our mission is to provide a safe and healthy space for women, children, and families to live, learn, and thrive.
