Fashionable Fundraiser

Yesterday we were involved at a fundraiser thrown on our behalf at the gorgeous Overbrook Golf Club. Sue Burt & Bridget Devine, the Chairs of the event, did a fabulous job of bringing together so many women to raise money for our Center.


The day began with raffle items inside and refreshments outside on the deck overlooking the golf course. We had displays discussing and promoting some of our programs while Adam and Gramercy Boutique, who provided the fashions and accessories for the fashion show, also showed select items.


This fun was followed by a short but serious program featuring a family who have adopted four children (three from one sibling group) in addition to the four they already have. Theirs was a poignant story of wishing to keep siblings together and the realities of blending so many children together. They seem to be handling it beautifully!

Finally we had lunch, with a fashion show and the raffle drawings. All told this event raised over $22,000! Thanks to all of the fine women who attended the event. And a special thanks to those who were on the event committee:
