December is here, and that means one thing—the FWA Annual Holiday Benefit. As always, we had a great time and it was wonderful to gather with friends, associates, colleagues, and sponsors to celebrate the season and the accomplishments of the FWA.
A very warm thank you to everyone who joined us for the celebration on December 5, 2016 at NASDAQ. We hope you enjoyed the signature cocktails provided by Danzka Vodka and the freshly prepared palate-pleasing hors d’oeuvres. Your participation means a lot to the success of this organization and because of your generosity, FWA has been able to provide financial literacy and educational programming to more than 6,000 future leaders.
We give special thanks to our President’s Circle members for backing our mentoring, financial backpack, and scholarship programs and for supporting gender equality. A special thank you to CIL US Wines & Spirits for supplying the spritzers and mixed drinks, thank you for being part of our 60th celebration. We thank Lily Klebanoff Blake for organizing and planning the evening’s festivities and for always being a constant resource, we are so overwhelmed by your support. Lastly, we graciously extend our gratitude to our FWA President, Katrin Dambrot, for her unwavering dedication, persistence, and amazing efforts in making 2016 another successful year.
On behalf of all those who benefit from your giving, we thank our membership so much for your support!
We hope to see you all again next year!
Thank you and happy holidays from all of us at FWA!
We are also pleased to announce that registration is open for the 32nd Annual International Conference: Toronto and Vancouver, Canada from April 24-28, 2017. This year’s theme is Celebrating Women’s Leadership.
