Dear Members and Friends,
Incredibly, 2013’s first quarter has come and gone. This gives us an excellent opportunity to revisit our New Year resolutions and goals, contemplate on how much more we need to step on the gas pedal to make things happen, close business deals, and make new contacts. What seemed like yesterday is now 3 months past us, giving us only 9 months to step up our efforts to accomplish our objectives. The year was kicked off with our successful 14th Annual Thelma Gibson Awards and Installation ceremony. It was an unforgettable experience sharing the stage with so many great women including speakers Tracy Wilson Mourning, Justice Peggy Quince, and our founder, Thelma Gibson all encouraging our guests to Lift as You Climb. The event was a smashing success by all accounts and we were proud to be able to donate over $1500 to Honey Shine Inc. for it.
Already in full swing this year we thank those of you who attended our theatre night at the Actor’s Playhouse in Coral Gables and those who joined us as we Ran/Walked at the Miami Zoo in the benefit of the Chapman Run for the Homeless Trust. These unique events allowed our members to interact and connect in relaxed social settings while enjoying and supporting community arts and local businesses. With so many events taking place this time of year don’t forget to watch for our upcoming Wind & Unwind mixers at Seasons 52, an informative empowerment lunch and an annual President’s Reception arriving in April. Watch your inbox and our website for more details soon to be released on events you won’t want to miss! And as always thank you for your support, membership and participation in the WCC. We are actively seeking members that want to take their membership to a whole new level by engaging in one of our active committees. For more information please contact our administrator Toma Rusk.
