Letitia and Miranda Warunek, sisters, organized and starred in an Irish step dancing performance at Pittston Area High School for the benefit of the Pediatric Center at the Care and Concern Free Health Clinic in Pittston. The event doubled as a National Honor Society service project for Letitia. The sisters have been dancing for a decade with the Pittston-based Emerald Isle Step Dancers. Letitia picked the pediatric center because it was funded by the Colleen Shea Children’s Foundation. Shea was Letitia’s CCD teacher before she lost her life in a traffic accident in 2001. Also because Letitia’s doctor, Dr. Michael Imbrogno, is a volunteer at the clinic.
