Sunday Brunch FUNdraising            


October 6, 2019

The Sunday Brunch FUNdraising event, chaired by Joan Philip and her hard-working committee on October 6, 2019, was a big success.  We had over 90 people at the event.  Stephanie Hakulin did an awesome job as a Mistress of Ceremony.  We had a survivor panel with 4 courageous survivors of domestic violence, moderated by Michelle Cline.  We also had BOLA raffles, a silence auction, a pie auction, basket raffles, and a photo booth.  The food made by Quinsigamond Community College staff was so delicious.  Everyone enjoyed this event.
Thank you all for your support!!
