WINGS (Women In Northfield Giving Support) held their 2008 grants award luncheon at the St. Olaf King’s Room on Saturday.
Catherine McBride, founding president of WINGS, and Lynn Vincent, current President, spoke to an assembled group of members and 2008 grantees. The WINGS endowment has grown to $310,000. Total grants in the past 7 years: $300,000. This year: $42,500.
After Girls Night Out (GNO) 2008, volunteer Ally Beyer emailed me that:
… we raised $1500 for the WINGS group. We are so excited about the outcome of this year’s event! We had almost twice the amount of women as last year. It was fantastic! Also, the committee loves what WINGS is about and we have decided to donate to WINGS every year.
