August 9, 2013 It was a day to celebrate!
Multiple bags of “Back to School” supplies for the kids at SafeHaven filled the foyer of Gail Santora’s beautiful home. Over 125 books for the shelter were donated by Mardel and other SOS members.
A $25,000 check was presented by SOS president, Deanna Stuart, to Mary Lee Hafley, CEO/President of SafeHaven.
Fonda Martin was recognized as the SOS Shining Star for 2013. The program presented by Amy Rasor of Girls, Inc. was inspiring.
And . . . the luncheon buffet prepared by Celebrity Chef Bravo!! Catering and Event Planning was outstanding.
The retirement of Reece Small, SafeHaven Development Director was announced by Mary Lee who introduced April Harris who will be her successor. Thank you, Reece, for the many years of support you have given SOS, and welcome, April!
The September evening meeting will be at Celebrity Chef Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House. Watch for the date, to be announced later. Thank you to all those who donated school supplies and books to the women and children living safely at SafeHaven!
