charityCharity Update

Our Holiday Tour of homes and progressive lunch was a wonderful success.  All three homes were stunning. Lynn Thompson, Julie Lischer and Missy Malmberg showed us all how you Deck the Halls!

Children's author, Rosalind Bunn, brought three of her book titles to sign and sell. The ladies loved hearing the premise behind each book. Rosalind graciously donated a portion of her book sales to CCYA. We can't wait to hear about her next book. You can follow her on Instagram under bunnrl and on Facebook at Rosalind Bunn Author. 

The CPWC members were very generous with their donations of gift cards and monetary donations to CCYA. We are happy to announce that we are presenting Marsha Brenner of the CCYA Guardian Angels with gifts cards and donations in excess of $1,400.   

See you next year!  Missy Malmberg and Heather Rees
