Jul 26 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The idea behind “Mostly Social” is to do just that. We plan to spend about 10 minutes giving our Foundation Neighbors an update on the goings on of the Foundation and then to simply socialize with everyone there to listen to ideas and observations about the Foundation and its future. Foundation board members hope to leave the evening with new ideas about how to increase our success and continue building our relationship with you at the same time. We will have a glass of wine, juice or local brew for your enjoyment and hors d’oeuves. Each event will last for up to two hours. Please come at the beginning and depart on your own schedule.
