Race For the Cure®
When you combine passion with commitment, the only possible result is success!
The members of N.E.W. have displayed these traits on a multitude of occasions. Most recently was as the top fundraiser for the 2011 Susan G. Komen Central Virginia's Race for the Cure. N.E.W. raised over $20,600. This didn't happen easily; it was the collective efforts of so many members, volunteers, community partners, etc. Everyone worked tirelessly to solicit sponsorships and donors, to sell tickets, and make the Bucks 4 Boobs event an amazing evening. The band was awesome, the food was delicious, and the generosity was endless.
N.E.W. will always rank #1 in their efforts to help this cause. Thank you members for all you do!
NEW's Grant Recipients
N.E.W. had 25 organizations submit for the 2012 N.E. W. Grant Program. Although many of the organizations are certainly worthy of support, the following recipients were the ones chosen by the committee. The James House, St. Joseph’s Villa, Strategies to Elevate People, and National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI –Central VA) each received $1,500. Art 180, the YWCA, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), and Hospital Hospitality House each received $1,000. That's a total of $10,000 in grants! The grant committee felt these recipients not only complimented the N.E.W. mission but also submitted all of the proper information according to our criteria. The grants were presented at the February and March luncheons.
