Sasha Summer CousineauLive Auction also with Emcee Sasha Summer Cousineau. Sasha, owner of Revel Rouser Events, is a fundraising auctioneer, gala emcee, and wedding officiant based in Seattle, WA. Sasha believes her clients make up the heart and moral compass of our communities which is why she is living her “OccuPassion” every time she gets to serve local non-profit organizations and educational institutions. A lifelong performer passionate about social justice, racial equity, and feminism, she is a skilled, experienced, and caring event professional who has a 360-degree view of events. In-person or online, you can bet that Sasha will bring her experience, talent, sparkle, and genuine care to her work. She is excited to serve as your emcee this evening and thanks you for your generous support of Friends of FSH Research.

Sean DenardDancing following the Live Auction with DJ Sean Denard. While serving in the army in North Carolina, Sean had the opportunity to DJ at the NCO club. He quickly discovered that he not only had a gift for being a DJ, but he loved it as well. After returning to Seattle, Sean opened Denard Productions and made this his full-time career.

Our most powerful source of fundraising is the Annual Auction. We gratefully accept items to sell at our auction and always need volunteers to help with set up and administration.

The necklace and T-shirt are available with proceeds going to further FSHD researchers like those who you may have seen present at previous conferences.
