... for sponsoring seminar
AWARE would like to thank Lisa Greenough and Merrill Lynch for sponsoring "Smart Women Finish Rich," a dinner and educational seminar. We would also like to thank Van Kampen Funds for co-sponsoring the event. It was an informative and motivational evening. Over 60 women learned ways to achieve financial security, fund their dreams and put their money were their values are. All proceeds were donated to AWARE to help support our work with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Businesses and individuals working together is a time-honored tradition and an enjoyable way to create positive change. AWARE is glad to work with others in promoting safer and healthier communities.
If you would like more information on how you can be involved, please give us a call at 586-6623.
... for dinners, camp and more
On behalf of AWARE, I would like to thank the Juneau Jewish Community for the wonderful contributions they have made to AWARE and the hundreds of women and children who use our many services including safe shelter, advocacy, education and support.
I would like to thank the wonderful volunteers who monthly prepare delicious dinners for the families staying at AWARE. It is a wonderful reprieve and break for the women and children who are seeking safety at a time of crises.
I would also like to thank the children attending the Juneau Jewish Community Summer Camp and Sarah Minton for their community service. It was terrific that you could prepare a healthy snack to be served to the children attending AWARE Children's Group. I would also like to thank the campers for their thoughtful questions and interest in helping end violence in our community.
Thank you again for all you have given and continue to give to AWARE.
If your group or organization would like to prepare a meal or healthy children's snack please call me at AWARE, 586-6623.
...for Folk Festival help
We just wanted to drop you a note of thanks for your continuing support of non-profit organizations in Juneau. The Alaska Folk Festival has been going for more than 26 years, but could not do what it does without support from businesses like the Juneau Empire.
We greatly appreciate that you run stories about some of the musicians we bring to town, the latest being the excellent Irish musician Gerry Harrington and Charlie Piggott.
Thanks for being part of the group of individuals and businesses helping us put on the fund raising concert we organize during the Fall and Winter. All this goes toward making the Alaska Folk Festival happen each April.
