Chapter members, spouses and guests gather to celebrate the holidays and spend time networking and sharing time together.
The chapter chooses an annual holiday community philanthropy partner to support at the holiday event. Donations of goods and selected items, as well as monetary contributions, are received for distribution to the selected partner.
2019 Holiday Gathering Recap- Blue Hill Tavern
Chapter members enjoyed another fantastic holiday gathering at Blue Hill Tavern, and everyone received a $25 gift certificate from the restaurant to return for drinks or a meal at a later date.
The chapter presented a $500 check to this year’s philanthropy partner, Happy Helpers for the Homeless. Members brought new, unwrapped toys for area children. The hat was passed and our generous members contributed another $919 to the 27 year old charity, which serves the homeless in Baltimore in Glen Burnie. Executive Director Bobbi Coffman accepted the donations and thanked everyone for their generosity. The chapter thanks all members who contributed to this great cause that will help wishes come true at Christmas for many children in the area.
When you shop through www.smile.amazon.com, you may designate Happy Helpers for the Homeless as the charity to benefit from your purchases, and the money will benefit local homeless families.
