The Julian Soup Luncheon on Saturday, May 14 was a huge success thanks to the superb organization of Dyan Winship, Paula Hackman and Nancy Kramer of the Julian giving circle! Over 65 people attended the event on a sunny afternoon at the Santa Ysabel Nature Center.
Attendees enjoyed delicious soups, salads, and desserts while being entertained by the music of Ken Wright and Lenny Boles. Diana Lindsay, Founder and President of Sunbelt Publications, gave an enlightening presentation on the book Coast to Cactus: The Canyoneer Trail Guide to San Diego Outdoors. It was an afternoon of music, good food, catching up with old friends, and mission-driven inspiration! Together, they raised over $4,500 to fund microloans, workforce readiness training, and poverty alleviation interventions for women in need.
We extend sincere thank-yous to the Julian Circle volunteers for their tireless work to put this event together and to all the friends who attended!
