I want to give a special thanks to Cheena Malicki from ICW, our Holiday Chair, for pulling off this very fun and successful event. Unfortunately Cheena was sick that day and so by default I became the Master of Ceremonies. But Cheena still came early that day and set up the room and the beautiful centerpieces. Thank you again Cheena and her volunteers: Betsy Johnson from ICW, who donated the pointettias; Cathryn Milazzo from Sullivan Insurance Brokers; Julie Brown from San Diego Insurance Staffing; and Cathi Marx from Aspen Risk Management, who ran a continuous power point promoting our sponsors and pictures from 2009.
We had a very fun and successful charity breakfast attended by over 50 early birds. This was the most successful Holiday Breakfast to date and brought in $3,460. This amount will be split between the YWCA Battered Women's Shelter and Rachel's Women's Center after giving $500 to the Girl Scouts of San Diego and Imperial Counties.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH to all our generous Sponsors and those who brought a raffle prize that day!
Our holiday theme held true- We were all angels that day by giving our time, money, and donations to charities. We even had donations from our members for the Rancho Coastal Humane Society and Animal shelter. Christine Hartline and CEO Jim Silveria attended the party to explain that they provide temporary housing for the animals of battered women so that they have a place to take their animals while they are in a shelter. We had speakers represented by each charity. From the YMCA we had Carol Ann and CEO Heather Finley and Antoinette Fallow from Rachel's Women's Center that gave us a heartfelt update of their situations and specific needs.
You may continue to give to these charities by dropping off items listed at their centers.
Happy New Year!
