Thank you to the many individuals and local organizations which generously supported Pathways!
“Gather to Give” Fundraiser Smashing Success!
Pathways and The Connection are still celebrating Pathways’ most successful fundraiser to date. In the fall, six events were held by thirteen gracious individuals committed to helping raise funds and awareness for Pathways. These hosts opened their hearts and homes, and invited their communities to participate, support, and contribute. Their efforts educated hundreds of attendees about our important services and programs, and $34,000 was raised!
Rebecca Michalopoulos and Denise Kelly co-hosted “Brunch and Bubbly” and “Sip and Shop” events where attendees previewed the 2017 Ellie Kai Fall Collection. Virginia Cepeda and Julie Lanzone held a brunch reception. Virginia commented, “It was wonderful to gather together and gain understanding about the important work Pathways does each and every day for women in our community.”
Mary Ann Moore and Allison Anderson were pleased to host an event. “What a delight it was to have such a wonderful group of women to my home for the Pathways event,” Mary Ann shared. “To come together for such a worthwhile and important cause made the evening that much more special. I had dear friends benefit tremendously from the support groups, dinners delivered and expertise shared by Pathways.”
Nora and Rob Radest co-hosted a wonderful dinner reception with Rob Densen, who touchingly conveyed that the most wonderful person he has ever known, his wife, Barbara, loved receiving Pathways Cooks meals before she passed away from cancer. Rob said she felt nourished and cared for, and the entire Densen family also shared how they had enjoyed Pathways Cooks’ savory meals with their mom.
Gerri and Dick Madsen have a special place in their hearts for Pathways. “Having worked at Pathways, I have seen first-hand the difference the programs make in the lives of the women they serve and their families,” Gerri said. “We were happy to celebrate Pathways’ many accomplishments and raise awareness for this special program.“
Passionate Pathways supporters Marianne Suffern and Wendy Graeb hosted a lively World Series-themed event, where their guests not only enjoyed learning more about Pathways, but shared their own experiences supporting friends and family during their cancer journeys.
Thank you, Gather to Give hosts! As the needs of our programs are far greater than the generous donations we receive, these successful Pathways Gather to Give fundraisers are all the more special and appreciated.
