After a delightful lunch, guests heard Fred Smith, Chairman of Fourth Partner and The Gathering, speak on what his mother taught him about giving.  He then introduced Dr. Sasha Vukelja, and she shared her amazing story of growing up with a mother that was always giving, even when they had so little themselves.  Dr. V told the audience, “My mother always said, ‘If you’re going to give to someone, do it now because you may never have another chance’.”  How special it was to hear these two accomplished, generous individuals give their mothers so much credit for who they are today.   All guests were presented with a booklet “A Mother’s Giving Heart” full of tributes that many of those attending had written about the special ladies in their lives.

Be sure to mark your calendars for next year – you won’t want to miss this opportunity to honor those special ladies in your life.
