Dear BTAR and Guests:

Thank you all for your generous donations at our Spring Luncheon to the babies and toddlers of My Sisters’ Place.  I made the drop off on May 20, 2019 at My Sisters’ Place, Inc. to Christina Knowles, Development Associate, left, and her intern, right, amidst ooohs and aaahs of delight at the adorable collection of kiddie goodies.  Once again, your generosity has exceeded all expectation.  May your gifts provide some comfort to the moms and children of My Sisters’ Place.  You are the best!
