Chapter Sponsor Capitol Lighting provided the perfect setting for our holiday party with a touch of sparkle!  There was music and  much merriment.

Guests brought new items of bedding as a donation to Sweet Dream Makers who provides new beds and bedding, story books and Teddy bears for children who have no bed of their own.  They also accept gently used household goods and furniture so the children can live in a furnished home.

Holding some of the donations are member Sylvia Wallace, Sweet Dream Makers Founder Suzi Broad,  member Sue Lemire owner of Chapter Sponsor Haven,  Debbie Block, Treasurer of Sweet Dream Makers, and President Marsha Koch. We collected two car loads for Sweet Dream Makers.  The next day a single mom and her 4 children  came to the warehouse and almost everything was gone.  Thank you everyone for your kind and generous contributions.

Take a look at some of the merrymakers from that evening .  There were over 40 attending including 10 sponsors!  We  thank everyone at Capitol Lighting for all they do for us all year long.  Many thanks to all our Florida Chapter Sponsors for their role in making us a dynamic and growing chapter.

Members Susan Heller, Sylvia Wallace, Marsha Koch, Vicki Kirsner, Lynn Sciarrone and Beverly Stewart welcomed members and guests to the party.
