For the third year the Westchester Chapter of WFWP was again blessed to hold our annual Schools of Africa Fundraiser right beside the beautiful Hudson River, in the lovely Eileen Fisher Hall in Irvington, NY. We are grateful for the generosity of Eileen Fisher, a very distinguished fashion designer, and her Fortune 500 company for allowing us the use of her venue.Our warm and welcoming emcee, Ms. Grace Ross, opened the program by introducing the Belvedere Family Church Choir.

As St. Valentine's Day came and went, one of WFWP Westchester's women's groups carried the love-themed saint's day through to the end of the month. At this month's meeting we held the first "Love Post" event. "Love Post" is a new concept and activity created specifically for WFWP meetings. It is the act of hand-making and sending postcards anonymously to people in our local community. Love Post postcards read: "Love Post was created to encourage the expression of creativity and provide loving support through the delivery of handmade cards/postcards" The front of the postcards were decorated by everyone who attended. We used watercolor, stamp art, magazine collage, mixing mediums and creating unique imagery to inspire the recipient. Here are photographs from our February 28th event. Thank you to everyone who…

Caring Through Sharing

February 22nd, 2015
At this month's WFWP Westchester Young Women's Initiative meeting, we decided we wanted to let go of things we didn't need, and to give to those who do. The ladies subsequently went to work and cleaned out their closets, pantries, and toiletries, and shopped at local pharmacies and grocery stores. The flurry of activity resulted in a sizable donation for the local women's shelter, My Sister's Place. On January 16, we all brought our things to a SWAP party. For a SWAP party, we all bring our gently used or brand-new items of clothing, toiletries, lotion, and makeup, and we swap what we have. It's a fun way to clean out our closets and try new things. After we were done looking through the swapping items, the remainder was donated…
This year, the Westchester Chapter of WFWP New York was very excited to have our annual benefit for the Schools of Africa Project at the beautiful and modern Eileen Fisher Hall in Irvington, New York, down by the Hudson River. (The Eileen Fisher events hall is part of the Eileen Fisher Fortune 500 company. Eileen Fisher is a very distinguished fashion designer.) Our emcee, Ms. Johil Ross, opened the program and introduced our first speaker, Mrs. Angelika Selle, President WFWP USA. Our chapter was delighted to have our president give the introduction to WFWP. No one else could have done a better job! To end her introduction on a high note, Mrs. Selle called Ms. Charmaine Singer to the front, to honor and appreciate her dedication for the past 10…
On Sunday December 8, 2013 the Westchester WFWP Chapter held its 10th Annual Benefit for the Schools of Africa Project, with our signature Silent Auction at the Royal Palace (Indian Cuisine) in White Plains, New York. This year the silent auction was better than ever with wonderful donations from Mrs. Kobayashi, Mrs. Kanae Holt, and Mrs. Yutaka Sato. In addition there were donations from organizations including the New Yorker Hotel and the Manhattan Center, just to name a few. Many Charmaine Singer vendors generously donated their fabulous hand-made jewelry and accessories. Our very competent Mistress of Ceremonies, Mrs. Susan Bouachri, seamlessly guided the event so everything flowed, although we did miss our usual lively MC, Ms. Kristi Mas, who was very busy this year. Her sister, Ms. Kascia Graham, sang…
