Our Spring Soirée 2018 – Down and Derby – was a total success! I write to extend my sincere and heart-felt gratitude to the scores of current and former community members and friends of BCD that gathered at Crissey Farm on Friday night for a memorable evening of fun, friendship, food, and fundraising.
Special thanks go to Soirée chairs Suzannah and Pieter Van Schaick and Ashley Junod, and Jessica Provenz and Lia Russell-Self, for their leadership and energy all year, and to their creative and hardworking committee.
Underwriters and sponsors, and each and every amazing bidder and paddle raiser, thank you for your generosity and support – our expectations were exceeded. I am enthusiastic to share that we surpassed our goal for the BCD Financial Aid Fund.
PS And what a joy it was to be there when Jen Capala’s name was chosen as the winner of this year’s raffle. Jen chaired this event three times over the years. What a great example that “what goes around comes around.” (more pics soon)
