Nancy Fetes NCAA Bound University
On March 15th, Nancy did her motivational lecture for the appreciative fans at Oakland University in Michigan. Coincidentally, if you believe in coincidence, the universitys basketball team won the play in game to the NCAA mens basketball Division I playoffs! Nancy, therefore, launched the Golden Grizzlies on their way into basketball glory! Boooyah!
Just as The Simpsons was the little show that could, so was Oakland U. the Cinderella of all Cinderellas in making it to the big dance. It was an electrified campus that greeted Nancy and while all the fans that came to see her show were not also b-ball fans, Bart tossed out a Go Grizzlies! that brought the house to their knees.
Make A Wish
The Los Angeles Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is one of Nancys pet benefits. She has been called upon many times to help make "final wishes" come true by meeting Bart. In order to help finance these wishes, there was a wine tasting/auction at the Santa Monica Airport in one of the hangers. Literally thousands show up every year for this enormous extravaganza. Nancy donated a "Bart Basket" complete with t-shirts, dolls, DVDs, a signed script and an invitation for the donor plus guest to attend a table reading of "The Simpsons." Nancy was surprised by being introduced in the audience and simply stated just as Bart might say, "Dig deep, people!" The quip worked because this prize garnered a hefty $2,000 for the foundation, all in support of helping some kids dreams come true during such stressful times in their young lives.
Ohio Here We Come...
Nancy will be performing the US debut of her one-woman show, My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy, at both Ohio University in Athens, Ohio and Kettering/Fairmont High School in the Dayton, Ohio area.
The purpose of the two performances is to raise funds for the Nancy Cartwright Scholarship for Kettering students who want to go to Ohio University. Performances will be on May 5th at Ohio University and May 6th at Kettering. Both are evening shows.

Happy House Visits Frazier Park
Think Bart Simpson is a good role model? Well hes not. But Nancy Cartwright, who does his voice on The Simpsons, is.
If your family has problems with communication, cooperation, mutual respect, and trust, and if you want your home to be a place of joy, please join Happy House and co-founders Rose Goss and Nancy Cartwright for a family seminar on Saturday April 30th at 2:00 p.m. in the Frazier Park Community Center.
This 90-minute seminar is free and there will be complimentary snacks and beverages along with some great live entertainment. You will come away with some very useful tools to help you with the challenges you face in your family.
Nancy and Rose founded Happy House - a non-profit group that is open to people of all faiths and beliefs - as their way of helping to build better families. The seminar is filled with useful tips drawn from a lifetime of experience and uses common sense tools so well-articulated in The Way to Happiness, a secular booklet written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
Honor and help your parents, love and help children, set a good example, be worthy of trust and be competent are sections that lay out some of the keys to happiness in the family. Many of these basic truths are shared as core values by major religions and all peoples of goodwill but it is not always clear how to put them into practice. Nancy and Rose share how one can put these values into action in a family.
Nancy, a single mother of two active teens is the voice behind Bart Simpson - one of Time Magazine's top 100 most influential "persons" of the 20th Century. Rose comes from a family of twelve and is the mother of two young adults and has been married 31 years. She is a writer and award winning documentary producer. Both of these professional women and experienced parents want to share with you what has worked for them in dealing with tough family situations. They want to give you some sane solutions to handling your family problems!
Parents and teens are invited to join them and get some important tools to make your own family happier.
Along with the free snacks and beverages all attendees will receive a signed The Way to Happiness booklet as a gift from Nancy and Rose. Hope to see you there!

Youth Center Event
Nancy and "Kids on Stage For a Better World" entertained the hardy folks who turned out for the fundraiser for the North Valley Youth Center. Hosted by the North Valley Chamber of Commerce, Nancy introduced the show and said a few words about her new social betterment group, Happy House. Gelsons Market really went all out to help in setting up the event and Nancy was glad to lend a hand to raise some funds for the much needed new Youth Center that the Chamber has planned. "Wayne Adelstein, the President of the Chamber, did a great job rallying the local merchants and the local fire and police departments. I was impressed with all the gung-ho despite the rainy weather."
