2020 COMMITTEE MEMBER
Laura Wyse is an Unsung 7 for Camp Ooch committee member. Bio coming soon.
I am very honoured to a long standing member of the fundraising committee of Unsung Heroes. In addition to having performed in these wonderful productions each year, I am also a 6 time Sponsor. I am well aware of the impact the money we raise has on the causes we support each year which is why I joined the committee this year.
I am very fortunate to have been brought up with a strong foundation of giving back to community and as such have been involved in many wonderful charity organizations through the years running programs, helping raise funds, and bring awareness to different causes close to my heart. Where I am really blessed is seeing how this has been instilled in my children. Each have their own charities they support, and feel passionate about. It was particularly rewarding to see my eldest daughter happily volunteer her time to work backstage for all 3 of our productions last year, and see what it takes to pull off a show of this caliber.
When not performing and doing committee work, I run my own baking business called Irresistibly Delicious and I am a busy mom of 3 awesome kids.
