The IHN – Main Line 6th Annual Spring Fundraiser, Opening Hearts & Opening Doors, was a success.
Once again IHN – Main Line volunteers and supporters gathered for our 6th annual spring fundraiser, Opening Hearts and Opening Doors, on April 19. We want to thank Appleford in Villanova for providing a beautiful venue for this event. The John Grecia Band entertained the crowd as everyone relaxed and dined on Appleford’s lovely terrace. Raffle tickets were sold to a more than generous crowd. The raffle baskets were beautiful and the attendees were delighted when someone won a basket.
The dinner raised over $37,000 for IHN – Main Line’s self-sufficiency programs. We appreciate everyone who participated in the event by providing sponsorships, contributing to IHN, and of course, coming to the event. Amy Deahl-Greenlaw remarked, “It was so heartwarming to see and feel the energy, love and power of this diverse coalition of faiths and congregations. In every way, the event lived up to its worthy cause. Dedication to this cause and this organization was palpable. The event, like the organization, truly embodies the saying, (saying) ‘it takes a village!’”
Thanks goes out to Susan Ayres and the Board of Directors for making the benefit a success. Without all our dedicated volunteers and committed congregations we would not be able to help the families with children we serve.
