On June 1, 2012, VEP held its annual Spring Fundraising Breakfast at the Desmond Hotel in Malvern, PA. Once again, this special event was a huge success due to the efforts and involvement of many people.
We would like to thank our sponsors and donors who so generously fund this breakfast. We are fortunate to benefit from a community of organizations and business who support us in our work. Please check out the full list of our donors and sponsors for this event.
Thank you, also, to the committee of dedicated board members and volunteers who coordinated the event. As always, it was inspiring, beautiful, and delicious — a morning to remember.
Tamala Edwards of 6 ABC, was a warm and wonderful emcee for this event. Everyone in attendance was captivated by the student and tutor speakers who shared their stories of learning English with VEP. And honoree Carol Klauss shared her perspective as former director of VEP, tutor, and longtime advocate. (Stay tuned to the blog in upcoming days for a reprint of Carol’s moving speech!)
Finally, thank you so much to all the tutors and students and guests who attended this event, sharing your morning with us. Our work would be impossible without the devotion of our tutors.
