Newtown Hadassah Spring Fundraiser featuring 94 Maidens

What an all time high this event was for 94 Maidens author Rhonda Fink-Whitman and her husband, Mike! From the amazing women and their extremely kind words, to the delicious food and hospitality, to the precious puppes at each table and each one named for a character in the book! Both the book and the mission came to life and the evening was a sheer delight! Our hearts are touched in ways we didn’t even know possible! So much gratitude and appreciation to Linda Oppenheim Brown, Joan Dovberg Dossick, President Ilene, and the 160 fabulous ladies of Newtown Hadassah for all of the love and support! Thank you for inviting 94 Maidens!! And a heartfelt thank you to the fantastically talented knitters who crafted the most beautiful puppes representing the doll held tight by our beloved mother – the child on the cover of the book! What a night!!! One we’ll always remember indeed! <3 <3 <3
