Pittsburgh Custom Darkroom's still-life specialists use digital technology to save vintage photographs that have been stained, spotted, torn, faded, cracked, and bleached. Picture fixers first consult with patrons to determine a restoration estimate and their favorite Civil War general. Snapshots return to their former glory with light (approximately $75–$100), medium (approximately $100–$150), medium/heavy (approximately $150–$200), and heavy (approximately $200–$300) restorations. During the process, a professional scans the image and produces up to an 8"x10" archival print (larger prints incur an additional cost), thus saving treasured memories of family vacations or alien abductions.
The fifth-annual Millvale BrewFest is a charitable summer festival that brings together live music, brews, and tasty eats. The food-only Groupon option gets ticket holders admission to the festival and a spread of picnic-style food prepared by local chefs, which also includes vegetarian and vegan options. Proceeds from the festival go to Millvale MainStreet and Millvale Borough Development Corporation, a nonprofit helping the Millvale area recover from Hurricane Ivan damage by developing housing and business projects.
ASSET draws science class out of textbooks and places it squarely into student hands in the form of educational experiments and a curriculum designed to motivate student interest in the subject. In addition to promoting a deeper interest, hands-on scientific learning employs critical-thinking skills that can foster lifelong learning. ASSET currently works with 150,000 students in 140 Pennsylvania school districts to increase their exposure to science education. However, ASSET is still in need of donations to fund a kit of mentally stimulating science materials for a class of 30 elementary and middle school students in the Pennsylvania school system. Kits contain enough science materials for children to conduct between 9 and 12 weeks of scientific experiments and investigations.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Organization is not just for the wealthy. It is for the single mom who can't find her keys through all of the kids toys in the entry way, and the new couple just moving into their starter home with no idea of where to start unpacking. It is for the elderly couple with a little too much stored in the attic, and the family of four who is trying to squeeze every ounce of usable space out of their home. We work with all clients, of all income levels, for all organizational solutions.
Back in 2008, Jacqueline Massacci founded FrockOn.com, which slowly evolved from the creation of fashion production shows into a fashion blog with a world-wide audience. It also inspired a reality TV series based on the writers and business partners who were involved in the project. After achieving success with that still-thriving venture, Jacqueline wanted to take a more personal approach to fashion advice. That's why she founded Impressions Style Consulting.
Jacqueline's clients include both men and women, and range from doctors and top executives to stay-at-home moms. While she works one-on-one with each person, she helps them create comfortable, flattering wardrobes that help one feel confidence in both their personal and professional spheres of life. She also helps people surmount big life changes, such as weight loss, divorce, or getting back into dating.
