Volunteer Appreciation Event – Wednesday, June 4, 5:30-7:30 at a new location* (not at our offices).
It’s all about you! Please plan to join us. An E-vite was recently sent to you, so be sure to respond when you receive it. This special night, given by our Wings Board of Directors, is to let you know just how much you are appreciated and remind you how vital your volunteer efforts are to Wings for Success. Wine, Food, Gifts and Fun!

Our Next Flash Sale! – Tuesday, June 10, 4 to 6 p.m. at our Frazer office.
Diane has pulled lots of great new spring and summer clothing to include in this Flash Sale, so you won’t want to miss it! Where else can you get great clothing, shoes, and bags for $5-15? Postcards with all the details are at the front desk – feel free to spread the word and encourage your friends to come!
Merriment, Makeovers and Miracles – Thursday, October 23 at Chester Valley Golf Club
Our 2014 “3M” gala event has been scheduled for Thursday, October 23, 6 to 8 p.m. Save the date now! It won’t be the same without you there! Also, if you or someone you know might like to be a sponsor of the event or would like to donate an item to the silent auction, please let LeeAnn know.
Fashion Forward Show
Many thanks to the volunteers who worked to make Wings’ first signature Fashion Show such a success! With the help of our great committee – and the many other volunteers who attended the event, not to mention the volunteers who dressed clients for the Client-Volunteer Challenge – we netted more than $11,000 for Wings. Many thanks also to Immaculata University and its staff and students for their hard work and donated time to launch this first-time event.

Wings Gift Cards
Did you know that we have handmade “Wings Gift Cards”, complete with stylish butterflies, in any denomination of your choosing? They can be used to “buy” any Friends & Family or Flash Sale item. What could make a more perfect birthday gift for one of your volunteer friends? Ask Diane or LeeAnn if you want one!
Helping Wings Forever
You love Wings and have devoted yourself to helping Wings help women succeed – but how can you make sure your commitment keeps on helping forever? With a planned gift, such as a bequest! It’s very simple to include a charity in your will, and your gift could take the form of cash, stocks, mutual funds, or annuities – and making these gifts can include serious tax benefits. Ask LeeAnn how to get started to make this happen.
