“Song Suffragettes hit the five-year mark this year and given the continued success of the show, we’ve been looking for sponsors to assist as we grow our all-female performance brand,” says Todd Cassetty, founder of Song Suffragettes. “After meeting Eden Lopez, Leslie Schwartz, Paula Steinberg and Liz Weikes, working with The LSSW Group made perfect sense. This relationship will help us evolve new female-centric initiatives, and it is the glowing definition of women supporting women.”
