As a Women’s Fund serving all of Western Massachusetts, we try to connect with women and girls in all four counties. One night this summer, on her way home from an event in the Berkshires, Donna met Veronica Fenton. As they started to get to know each other and bond over their recovering lawyer days, Veronica graciously offered to host a Party with a Purpose!
The party quickly became a family affair and with a lot of help from the wonderful women in Veronica’s life, we had a celebration of spectacular Berkshire women for an evening of food, drinks, and fun (and fun-draising!). Donna, former board member Shirley Edgerton, and current board member Gwendolyn VanSant addressed the crowd to talk about how the Fund is pushing progress toward gender equity in Western Massachusetts.
Thanks to her efforts we welcomed over 50 new donors and raised over $3,000. We are so grateful to Veronica and to all the women in the Berkshires who joined this community.
