GOSHEN — Joseph Pietropaolo, a native of Goshen, performed in the third annual Wheels4Women Cabaret at Ithaca College to benefit victims of abuse in India.

During the performance, members of the senior class performed a variety of musical numbers and spoken word pieces with one common theme: hope.

Wheels4Women is an Ithaca College student organization dedicated to providing vehicles and training for residents of the SAKHI shelter of India towards becoming licensed rickshaw drivers, thus helping them to achieve financial independence for themselves and their children.

SAKHI is an initiative of the Cultural Academy for Peace in Kerala, India. The center aims to help women and children who face harassment, torture, suicide and sexual and domestic abuse on a daily basis.
