Lisa was on tour in Europe with Peter Frampton last November when she tuned into the Italian news and saw what was happening in Vernazza.
Lisa states, “As it turned out, I crossed paths in Paris at the end of the concert tour with my friend, Save Vernazza’s Vice President, Michele Lilley. I had the idea of donating some items to them to help raise funds. When I asked Peter, he was happy to sign some things for them, and when I came back to the States, I contacted more of my friends in the entertainment world. I knew with the situation on the ground in Vernazza and distance that it would be impossible to offer physical help, so I thought that contributing to Save Vernazza in this capacity could be a fun unique way to help raise funds and bring more attention to their needs. I’m grateful to my friends in the entertainment business for their generosity and willingness to help out. Every little bit helps!”
