With less than four weeks to go, tickets are selling quickly for the Channel 3 Kids Camp 4th Annual Women Raising Awareness Philanthropically (WRAP) Luncheon. Don’t miss 2012 Keynote Speaker Dr. William Petit Jr., founder of the Petit Family Foundation on Friday, April 20, 2012 at the Hartford Marriott Downtown Grand Ballroom.
Each year men and women attend the event to celebrate the work of a woman who has made a significant impact on their community through philanthropy and volunteerism while raising money for year-round programs at the Channel 3 Kids Camp. The 2012 event will honor Magi Bish who lost her daughter to abduction 12 years ago. Out of that loss she created the Molly Bish Foundation, dedicated to providing safety education, awareness and prevention of missing and exploited children.
Emceed by WFSB TV Channel 3 Traffic Reporter, Olessa Stepanova, the luncheon offers guests an afternoon of positive networking, inspiration and fun. The doors will open at 11:00am with a silent auction, cash bar, and shopping opportunities featuring a wide range of regional products and services.
The formal program will begin at 12:15 with a delicious spring inspired lunch. The luncheon message recognizes life’s unpredicted heartaches while sharing stories of triumph that inspire the healing of the human spirit. Our luncheon speakers have made remarkable efforts and are true community role models. The program will conclude promptly at 1:15 to allow additional time for networking and shopping.
