On February 14, 2012 (yes, Valentine’s Day) the Inland Empire Chapter was recognized by Unforgettables Foundation for the Chapter’s fundraising efforts for the Foundation at the July 2011 Corridor Catwalk. Several Chapter Board members attended the luncheon, along with two of the models from the Catwalk.  WTS-IE was truly honored for this recognition, and we also pleased to receive Proclamations from Senator Bill Emmerson’s Office and Assemblyman Mike Morrell’s Office. Thank You to all of our members and sponsors who made our donation possible!  Go to this page to peruse photos from the luncheon.

“Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work with WTS.  The dinner last night was so much fun!  The food was sooooo yummy and the music and dancing were terrific.  Best of all was the fact that WTS-IE has raised so much money that we were able to support so many women with scholarships.  Seeing their smiling faces and hearing their stories was heartwarming.”  Cathy Bechtel, RCTC

“I had a great time last night, and I think it was a job well done by you ladies once again.  When I am done with school, I would love to join the committee and volunteer where I can, so please keep me in mind. Many, many thanks and have a great weekend!” Nessa Williams, SANBAG
