On Monday, March 21, 2011, Summit Business and Professional Women honors The Seeing Eye by hosting a kick-off event in their participation in Seeing Eye’s program Pennies for Puppies/Dollars for Dogs. BPW is sponsoring a puppy and fundraising on behalf of Pennies for Puppies. The public is invited to join BPW members as they recognize this organization that for more than 80 years has changed the lives of the blind and learn how they, too, can help support The Seeing Eye.
Anita Eigen and her six-year old Golden Retriever, Camper, will accept the honor and speak on behalf of the The Seeing Eye. Summit BPW selected The Seeing Eye for recognition in accordance with its mission to support working women’s education and career advancement. Using a Seeing Eye dog has made it possible for Seeing Eye’s graduates, many of whom are professional women, to continue their careers. In some cases has made it easier for them to attend colleges to prepare for their careers.
Networking begins at 6:30 PM at Café Beethoven, 262 Main Street, Chatham followed by dinner and the program from 7 to 9 PM. Cost is $35 to the public payable by cash or check at the door. Space is limited and advance reservations are required by Thursday, March 17th online at www.summitbpw.org or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summit Business and Professional Women is an advocate for working women on work-life balance and workplace equity issues and welcomes members from Summit and the surrounding communities. Write to Summit BPW, PO Box 831, Summit, NJ 07902-0831 or visit www.summitbpw.orgfor additional information.
