This week is #VolunteerAppreciationWeek! Every day this week, we are going to highlight some amazing volunteers and how they make Periwinkle a better place!
Today’s Volunteer Spotlight is on: Debbie Bauer! Debbie has previously served on our Gala committee and has been a volunteer at Camp Periwinkle. We’re thrilled to announce that Debbie has stepped up yet again to Chair the 2018 Periwinkle Gala with her husband, Ozzie!
She is also a friend of Alice’s (our Development Director), which gets her into trouble!
Why does Debbie volunteer with Periwinkle? “I was fortunate to attend a day at Camp Periwinkle. The sparkle in the eyes of the counselors and volunteers was only dimmed by the joy in the eyes of the campers. Periwinkle had touched my heart.” – Debbie
Why does our Staff Love Volunteers? “Our volunteers are the backbone of all Periwinkle fundraising events. Without these dedicated group of people, who make up our committees, brainstorm ideas, provide insight into logistics, help us secure vendors and auction items, connect us to many of our donors, amongst many other things, our events would not be as successful as they are, and we would not be able to provide funding for our camps, arts and survivor programs. For those who have served on committees or helped us in any capacity with Gala, Iron Sommelier, Periwinkle Cycle, Kickball Classic and Friends of Periwinkle Events- we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!” – Alice Rohrman, Development Director & Mary Rosenstein, Development Coordinator
