Our Pathfinder Tradition
It’s one of those things that just warms your heart. It’s a day that lights the way for the future of women we don’t even know yet. It’s a day where we laugh, we feast, and we imbibe with friends and family. It’s a day with a beautiful display of teamwork and camaraderie, and it’s a day that ends with us limping our way home with aches and pains from all the hard work we put into making our annual tradition everything that it is and everything it has been for the last umpteen years – a successful fundraiser!
But this time, it was even more than all of the above. It was a reunion. It was a revival. It was our first opportunity to return to this beautiful and worthwhile tradition, in person, after four long years, which made it all the more special for all of us. We were hugging people left and right and had no masks on! We saw people we hadn't seen in years with the opportunity to enjoy the company of so many of our treasured guests who traveled from afar to support our cause. And truly when I take it all in, I am in awe of just how special the day was.
Thank you to our Fundraiser Chairs, Robin Sawamura and Victoria Mackinnon for their astute leadership in planning our event. Thank you to our incredible Fundraising Committee, Donna Bush, Marianne Calabrese, Karen Fitting, Barbara Jenkins, Julie Tabler, (and me) for all your savvy contributions. Thank you to all our members for showing up with your love and all your contributions! Thank you to all our ABWA sisters, friends and family near and far for standing shoulder to shoulder with us. Thank you to all our wonderful donors – you are the icing on the cake that makes this day as sweet as it can be!
Our Pathfinder Annual Tradition. It's a lot of hard work and starts out as a most daunting task with many bumps in the road. Through perseverance, commitment, and great leadership, and I mean great leadership - we get there – and then we get here, to the accolades, and it’s a such great place to be!
Well done, team Pathfinder!
