Dollars 4 Scholars Annual Fundraising Luncheon A Big Success!
On March 19, 2022 we held our annual fundraiser at Galuppi’s Restaurant in Pompano Beach. Close to 50 participants enjoyed an exciting presentation by our speaker, S.L. Menear, great discussions with friends and an excellent meal.
Retired airline pilot Sharon Menear began her career as a flight attendant and later, after training, became a pilot in 1980. After retirement, Sharon wanted to try her hand at writing a novel. Her favorite novels have always been thrillers, so she chose to write in that genre. She discussed her rise to become a pilot and how she then became a very successful mystery writer. We were also delighted when Sharon shared plots of some of her latest works.
And, most importantly, our fundraising luncheon raised close to $3000 with donations from members, friends and raffle items at the luncheon. All funds are used for scholarship support to local women entering their junior or senior year of college.
Don’t miss our exciting luncheon planned for March 11, 2023. Visit this website for details.
