GBWOT Celebrates Birthday Wishes




This past Sunday, July 29th, Greater Bridgewater Women of Today held a pool party for members and friends in honor of the Birthday Wishes Foundation. Birthday Wishes is a non-profit foundation that provides birthday parties for homeless children.

One goal of GBWOT is to inspire future generations to give back to the community. In keeping with that goal, children of GBWOT members were invited to participate and each child brought a children’s craft and/or birthday present to donate to the children helped by the birthday wishes foundation. Members also brought packages of juice boxes, a staple in constant need by the foundation.

GBWOT member Kerri Ross hosted the party at her home and helped to organize the event along with members, Anne Gorham, Donna Trapp and Carrie Sheehan. Donations will be delivered to Birthday Wishes Foxboro location  this week. For more information on the Birthday Wishes foundation visit: www.birthdaywishes.org

Meetings are open to the public and are held on the third Monday of the month. The next meeting is Monday, August 20th at 7:00 PM.
