At FNCE 2017, we revamped the format of the Gala, aka “Party with Marty”, from a formal, sit-down dinner to a reception, reducing the ticket price significantly in the process, allowing more students and young professionals to be able to afford to attend. We hope to see each of you at this October’s Gala on October 22 in Washington, DC! FNCE 2018 registration is open, allowing you to purchase your tickets now.
I’ve been very lucky to have such a terrific Foundation Board this past year, and want to thank those members who are completing their terms at the end of this month: Sylvia Escott-Stump, Cathy Christie, JoJo Dantone-DeBarbieris, Sitoya Mansell, Mary Russell, and Maha Tahiri. I’m excited that Kathy Wilson-Gold has been appointed as Chair-Elect beginning June 1. I’m also very grateful to our Philanthropy Council who’s done a marvelous job networking to solicit major donations to the Foundation, using their skilled “personal touch”. I look forward to the 2018-19 year that starts June 1, and I continue to be grateful for your ongoing generosity to the Foundation!
