To the Editor:

Women Empowered (WE) would like to thank everyone who made Saturday’s benefit at the Wharf so special.

The event came together thanks to Bobby Love and his company Funn and Frolic USA, who came up with the idea, and invited WE onboard. Thanks to Will Coogan of The Wharf for providing the perfect venue, and the DJs Rick, Andrew, and Di for kicking the party into high gear. The raffle raised much-needed funds that allow our organization to continue to provide life skills coaching to those who wish to build secure lives and achieve their potential.

Finally, Women Empowered would like to recognize our generous raffle contributors: The Bunch of Grapes, Vineyard Tennis Center, Mansion House, Rainy Day, The Boneyard, The Green Room, Funn and Frolic, Sports Haven, MV Hair Designs, Atlantic Cab, Jack Holmes Design, Boast, Bryn Walker, Mocha Mott’s, and The Wharf, and congratulate our raffle winners: Rudy, Scott, Ashley, Sharon, and Lucas.
