Thanks to the generosity of our Power Of 100 Women members, our initial meeting was a huge success. We exceeded our quarterly goal of $10k and raised nearly $15k in one night for three worthy charities!
The three nonprofit organizations – CASA, which supports children in the foster care system; Kids First, which works to end child abuse and neglect; and Koinonia Family Services, which provides foster care, adoption and family service programs – walked away with checks that evening to continue their great efforts in our community. Koinonia also received a surprise donation. When the presenter mentioned that one of the services they provide is braces for foster children, member Helen Tsibel jumped in and said her husband Garri Tsibel, an orthodontist in Roseville, could donate a set of braces (valued at $4500) to a deserving child.
Our first meeting was profiled in Style Magazine, which ran a short article with photos from the event.
The Power of Women would like to thank Paul Martin’s American Grill for hosting the event and providing a great meal. We look forward to doing it again in May and raising money for more great charities!
