Angel Patron event raises over $7k for local programs

Local News l

The Sarasota-Manatee Section honors our Angel Patrons with a special event every spring. Angel Patrons are members who donate an additional $75 above the annual dues. All proceeds from the event help in our mission to protect women, children & families in need. This year Barbara Aferiat graciously welcomed us all to her beautiful home for an afternoon of high tea. Our speaker was humorist & comedian Lynn McDonald. Lynn was quite a motivational and entertaining speaker and we truly enjoyed her presentation. She gave each member in attendance a signed copy of her book “If Your Horse Is Dead, Dismount”.

Many of our members wore their finest hats and gloves to go with the theme. We all enjoyed a fun afternoon with delicious tea sandwiches, scones and many other assorted foods and baked goodies provided by some of our members. The event raised $7600 to benefit all our local programs. Many thanks to our angel committee: Joyce Hersh, Barbara Berkowitz, Carol Papish, Marge Ellin, Marilyn Shapo, Phyllis Dreyfuss, Joan Bour, Janet Moses & Barbara Aferiat. We will be keeping you informed of the date and location for the upcoming Angel Patron event. Hope you will consider joining us.
