Sunday Brunch FUNdraising
October 6, 2019
The Sunday Brunch FUNdraising event, chair 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, silence auction, 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!!
