Having recovered from the excitement (and exhaustion) of the Auction I can now report that it was a very successful event. We raised a lot of money and we had fun doing it!
I want to thank everyone who helped make this event so successful – from the NFWFWF Board and volunteers extraordinaire, without whom this event could not have occurred, to those who donated items to be auctioned off and those who bid for and won the fabulous items. Each was vital to the success of the event.
The weather was perfect and the company was as well. One needed only to see the room filled with smiling sisters to understand the essence of NFWFWF – women helping women! We were even able to gather a number of past presidents for a historical photo.
Pictured from left to right is current president Lori Cohen and past presidents Deb Roth, Sandy Benedetto, Lisa Scott, Lucille Goodman and Marianne Weil.
Now that the auction has passed, we have moved back to normal business. Yesterday we approved a grant to assist two women who have been forced to move from their home. We also continue to monitor several of our members recovering from injuries and illness.
Keep an eye out for news of upcoming events. Next year is the 25th Anniversary of the NFWFWF and we hope to have special events throughout the year.
