2018 - Woman Power

"There is no tool for development more effective than the
empowerment of women."
- Kofi Annan

What an amazing year for the Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation! Thanks to many amazing women friends, and their women friends too, $16,905 was raised at two fundraising events in 2018. WOW!

On January 29, 2018, at Evelyn & Arthur: Women's Clothing and Fashion, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida boutique, we shopped ‘til we dropped and enthusiastically raised $9,505! It was an incredible experience for all those involved.

Later in the year, 180 women gathered at the Flourtown Country Club on October 10, 2018 for dinner and a fashion show. There were 18 models who wore individually-chosen ensembles from Scarlet Begonias, a woman's boutique and gift shop in Flourtown, PA. The models were all Foundation friends, supporters and clients of Scarlet Begonias. A great time was had by all! Women shopped between October 11 and 13, thereby raising $9,400 for the Foundation.

It makes me feel so good to know my wonderful women friends and Foundation supporters are always there - with continued patronage for the Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation. It's not possible to put into words how grateful Frank, Michael and I are for these efforts, completed solely to continue Kate's vision for our world and the potential to turn lives around. Please don't underestimate the value of your caring, kindness and generosity.
