eConnection 10/19: Congrats NJSFWC, GCI, Mink Coat Silent Auction, Fall Conference

We have been chosen as the Outstanding Community Organization by
Excellence in Philanthropy and we will be honored during a luncheon
on November 17th at the Bridgewater Marriott.  Anyone wishing to
attend this luncheon can contact Barbara McCloskey at  for tickets.

Girl’s Career Institute, GCI, will be celebrating its 75th
Anniversary in 2023.  NJSFWC would like to mark the occasion and we
are looking for your help. Our first step is to establish an Ad Hoc
GCI Celebration Committee so we can begin planning for a way to
commemorate the occasion with a special event.  We are especially
interested in finding women who have either attended GCI or past
Directors, housemothers or staff who may have a special memory or
story to share.  Chris Sienkielewski, Second Vice President, is
seeking anyone who would like to help planning this event.
Please contact her at if you are interested.
