SUCCESS! We raised over $7000 for the American Cancer Society in just two days with a new event, Foto/Fiber 2012.
My sincere thanks to the patrons who were so very generous. As always, our Honorary Chairperson, Karey Bresenhan, celebrating twenty-one years as a cancer survivor, was a steadfast support to me and the fundraising effort.
Of course, Foto/Fiber 2012 could not have happened without the donation of photos by Karen Stiehl Osborn and Cynthia Wenslow. The BONUSES were provided by this all-star team of artists who also excelled in p.r. for the event:
Frances Holliday Alford
Nancy G. Cook
Diane Rusin Doran
Leonie Hartley Hoover
Leslie Tucker Jenison
Susan Brubaker Knapp
Linda Teddlie Minton
Karen Stiehl Osborn
Cate Coulacos Prato
Cynthia St. Charles
Lura Schwarz Smith (with Kerby C. Smith)
Sarah Ann Smith
Mary Ann Van Soest
We have raised and donated over $220,000 to the American Cancer Society. I hope you are as proud of our success as I am.
P.S. It will take a bit to sort everything out, but the winners of the p.r. drawings as well as the drawings of fiber art will be announced no later than Monday, February 27.
