Sip and Swap–A Smashing Success
Moderator and SEHWC Board member Cheri Arendse kept the energy flowing as members and guests enjoyed a fun evening swapping all things beachy while sipping the special libation “Shark Attack,” created by Board member Nikki Purcell. The evening definitely put everyone in the mood for the start of summer. Members discussed the upcoming fall fundraiser including the need for live and silent auction items. We have some excellent items/services/tickets/packages already donated, but we’re still looking for more in hopes of making this the most successful fundraising drive for Straight From the Heart to date. Please contact our event chair Kathy LInenberger at email@example.com to discuss a donation. See below for more information about the event.
