Pearls of Wisdom 2021
Pearls of Wisdom Brunch and Fundraiser held Sept. 11 at Richland Country Club.
We are immensely grateful to so many individuals and organizations who have supported Pearls of Wisdom 2021.
To our very own Catholic community, members and volunteers, sponsors, donors, friends and guests who have generously supported Pearls of Wisdom in so many ways -- our heartfelt gratitude! Because of your support, donations and hard work, we are confident that we would exceed our goal of $40,000 to fund scholarships to three young women attending three area Catholic high schools this year. Although the challenges of the pandemic seemed unsurmountable, together, we were able to gather in a fabulous event filled with purpose, commitment and grace.
To our league President Lynne Warne and Development Co-Chairs Patricia Vance and Nikki Moreland, and to the rest of our board members who exerted tremendous efforts for many weeks leading to our big day, congratulations for a successful event. Well done!
