Great Falls Friends & Neighbors Club Gives Back
Money awarded to deserving local women at annual luncheon
GFFN member, Adrienne West, is a reporter for The Connection newspaper. She wrote the following words in an article that ran on September 24th:
When a group of like-minded women gets together, anything is possible. This was clear when the Great Falls Friends & Neighbors (GFFN) philanthropic group gathered at River Bend Golf & Country Club on Sept. 14 for its annual kick-off luncheon.
As more than 75 new and current members mingled over appetizers, the topic of giving was ever-present in their conversations. With two special prizes up for grabs during the event, the ladies purchased raffle tickets and raised more than $800 to donate to The Women’s Center of Vienna. A special thanks goes out to the prize donors: Toka Salon and Paul’s Wine and Spirits. Another table at the luncheon displayed the annual White House Christmas ornaments, whose sales will again be donated to Artemis House, a local shelter for victims of domestic violence.
Finally, a special presentation was given to highlight the various scholarships awarded by GFFN’s Scholarship Fund board. The board reviews entry essays from women over the age of 25 who are residents of Northern Virginia and attend George Mason University or Northern Virginia Community College. A dance scholarship is also given each year to a George Mason University student in honor of former club member, Betty Carter.
