We are thrilled to be present our 6th Tomatoes Got Talent show which showcases the talents of women over 40, who do not earn their living with their talents. Many started out as professionals and segued into other careers – we’ve had doctors, teachers, social workers, paralegals – who step onto the stage and become super stars. And by the way, four of our talented alumni have been nominated this year for MAC awards – Sheree Sano, Teresa Fischer, Angela Leone and Susan Mack. Who will win this year?
