Fund Raiser for Atlanta Day Shelter

JUST SO YOU KNOW--I think that most of you got the same invitation that Anne got about the HEART AMD HAND SOCIETY LUNCHEON, a fund raiser for the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women & Children---to be held on Thursday, February 9, 2012. It will be held at Commerce Club, 191 Peachtree Street NE, 49th floor. The cost is $50 per person. Table sponsorships are $400 for 10 seats. I have mentioned previously that the Shelter reorganized last year; they now have corporate sponsors and a Board of Directors. A part of the program will feature success stories from women and children who have been helped by the Atlanta Day Shelter.
Earlier, those of us who made it to Alice Young's gathering last August, discussed briefly what Atlanta Alums should do about contributions to the Shelter. We agreed that we would continue with writing personal checks at Christmas time. BTW-- the amount of our contributions this past December was disappointing, but Anne sent the checks along as usual and right away received a beautiful THANK YOU letter from the Shelter. This lets us know, as we have always known, that any amount is welcomed. If any of our members want to attend this luncheon, Anne can provide more information. All of us are touched by the needs of this group and would be more generous if we could. Looking forward to a response here.
