Anne founded the 6-Minute Memoir storytelling event in 2013 as a way to bring people together to share stories — all for a good cause. It’s held annually at the First Unitarian Church in Hamilton and bimonthly at The Staircase Theatre in Hamilton.

Each event features 12 local storytellers who share tales on a theme, such as “Lost and Found,” “Leaps of Faith” and “The Way We Bleed.”

Each event raises money for charity. To date, more than $15,000 has been raised for First Unitarian Church of Hamilton and charities such as The Eva Rothwell Centre and the Sexual Assault Centre of Hamilton.
