7 Most Beautiful Women:Inside and Out
Congratulations to our Director of Communication + Development, Tiffany Montemayor, who has been selected as one of The Bend Magazine's "7 Most Beautiful Women: Inside and Out" ! Each year, The Bend Magazine chooses women who look around them and use their time and effort to make the community a better place. Tiffany not only works for a non-profit but serves on the board of directors for two other local non-profits, one city board, and volunteers as an "Angel" Runner with Wings of Texas My Team Triumph.

This special honor is an opportunity to celebrate and encourage people to show off their inner beauty. Each of the 7 women have chosen a nonprofit or charity that is close to their heart and have pledged to raise at least $2500 for it by September 20! Tiffany has chosen The Council on Alcohol + Drug Abuse Coastal Bend because she believes that most of the issues people and our community face, can often be traced back to substance use problems.
"The Council has an impact on everything from education, to health, to employment, to quality of life, to our futures... The Council changes lives every day." - Tiffany Montemayor

Please take a moment to click on this fundraising link and make a donation to this special campaign. All of the donations come back to The Council and will allow us to continue making an impact in the Coastal Bend. If you prefer to donate cash or check, please make checks payable to The Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse - Coastal Bend and drop them off at our office.
