Ms. Allen also formed Sylvia’s Children, a non-profit 501@3 organization that is providing support to children in Africa who have been orphaned by AIDS. She visited Africa three years ago and was so upset by the devastation caused by AIDS that she took action and formed her own non-profit that has succeeded, so far, in providing all the schooling, food, lodging and educational support for 100 orphans at the Mbiriizi Primary School. She is planning a return trip in June.
Last year Ms. Allen was inducted into the International Festival and Events Association Hall of Fame and most recently received the ATHENA Award from the Western Monmouth Chamber of Commerce.
