The Music Students Service League of Contra Costa (MSSL) collaborated with Macy’s Walnut Creek on May 4 to host their second annual fashion show in support of the Katie Nues Foundation for Rett Syndrome. (L-R) Macy’s Assistant Manager Kendra Diedrich, MSSL Parent Coordinator (and Orinda resident) Minda Yu, President of MSSL Michelle Chen, Katie’s Clinic Founder Jesse Nues, Katie Nues, Melissa Nues, Katie’s Clinic Director Dr. Mary Jones, and MSSL Vice President Max Chen were in attendance, raising $5,000 to benefit the foundation. With members from a number of East Bay high schools, including Miramonte, MSSL is a student-run, nonprofit whose mission is to promote happiness through music while also providing support for those in need. The donation from MSSL will go directly toward clinical care, research projects and community education associated with Rett Syndrome, a rare genetic mutation that almost exclusively affects girls and impairs brain development.
