On Thursday, January 27, 2011, a small group of women celebrated the accomplishments of the local affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The evening was made more wonderful when Oregon Women’s Sailing Association (OWSA) received the Strength of Many award—in honor of every donor, volunteer, and participant who has given an hour or a dollar.
Special recognition goes to a core group who have given significant time to every SFTC to date: Alice Patten, who created Sail for the Cure; Edie Felix, who developed and maintains the database that make OWSA and SFTC work; Erika Spooner, who has created everything graphical from brochures to t-shirts; Linda Wanitschek, master of sailing games; and Mary Woiccak who added a silent auction to the event. Many of these women have also chaired the event, or played special roles in each year.
This year’s SFTC Chair, Annette Kienberger, hopes you will join these women and the many others who give year after year, and volunteer your time and talents to the 12th Annual Sail for the Cure on September 25, 2011.
