To the Editor:
Our sincere thanks to Rose Styron, her friends, and friends of Women Empowered, who attended "An Evening with Rose Styron" at the Harbor View Hotel on July 11.
Little did many of us know about the international efforts to improve the status of women across the globe, efforts that Rose has supported and championed for so long. Similarly, many Vineyarders know little about the local efforts of Women Empowered that have helped women and men on the Vineyard for 12 years. Our team of skilled coaches works with clients to develop budgets, reduce credit card debt, avoid foreclosure and bankruptcy, create effective resumés, and practice for job interviews at no charge to our clients. A simple call to 508-696-8880 can change a life.
That's why the support of friends and donors at our fundraiser was so important. Thanks again to Rose for sharing her time and talent, to the sponsors of our event, to the Harbor View Hotel and its exquisite staff, to WMVY and the MV Times, who helped spread the word, and to all who came and shared an enlightening evening with Rose, while helping Women Empowered to continue its valuable services.
