Jodi at NEW eventOn May 2nd, a great crowd gathered at the Bull and Bear Club for the Network’s second annual fundraising event, the NEWSoiree.  Proceeds from this fun Casino Night benefitted Safe Harbor.

N.E.W.’s mission is to create and provide a supportive environment for all members, which will foster and enhance their productivity, effectiveness, creativity, self-expression and accomplishment in their respective fields.  N.E.W. also taps into the talent, knowledge and skill of the membership and through action, makes a difference in the community through group projects and valuable contributions.

Guests at the event received chips to play their choice of games, hopping from cards to roulette, or horse racing.  In addition to plentiful hors d’oeuvres and drinks, live and silent auctions were held with some incredible items.    The event, chaired by N.E.W. members Traci Dracoulis and Faith Dickerson, was generously sponsored by many local businesses and individuals.
