Many thanks to all who made today’s Champagne and Chocolate fundraiser a success!
First, thanks to all who donated and attended this afternoon–League members gave generously and enjoyed treats for both the body and the mind. Delicious wine, cheese, and chocolate treats were courtesy of A. Russo and Sons as well as Marty’s Liquors, while an interesting history of the Allen House was shared by both Rep. Kay Khan and Adrienne Hartzell on behalf of the Newton Cultural Alliance. Finally, we heard about the important connection between art, artists and politics from our fantastic guest speaker, Anita Walker, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Second, thanks to our amazing team of League volunteers, without whom this never would have happened. Thanks go to: Pat Acton, Bonnie Carter, Marcia Johnson, Andrea Kozinetz, Sharyn Roberts and Tami Roberts.
This fundraiser helps cover our expenses over the next few years for things like rental fees for event space, hospitality, the Pollworkers’ Party, etc. Most of our membership fees go to help support the important work being done at the state and national levels, so we greatly appreciate the extra financial support!
