Update: Lake Country Charities raised $19,000 for WOVIN


Fundraising update March 2018: $19,000 raised

This event was a tremendous success with a delicious luncheon, shopping, and a silent auction. Thank you to everyone who attended the charity event and supporting our WOVIN Program.

NOTE: The idea to host a future event for female veterans derived from a meeting with Jan Neis and Debbie Mulberry who connected with our organization at the Lake Country Charity Event. We have hosted two Wellness Gatherings in February and again in March, 2018. See our WOVIN newsletter for details.
