ABWA Holiday Event Dec. 12 In Gardens

The Northern Palm Beach Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association will meet Wednesday, Dec. 12 at the PGA Doubletree Hotel in Palm Beach Gardens.

There will be no formal speaker. The December meeting will be a holiday celebration and gift bag assembly for donation to local vets. All are welcome as the group prepares gift tags and fills bags with assorted toiletries, clothing, trinkets and activities. Donations will be made to the VA Medical Center at a later date in December. Mary C. Phillips, chief of voluntary/recreation therapy service, has noted that the need is overwhelming. Chapter member Tina Ravel, an independent Stampin’ Up demonstrator, has donated the items necessary to prepare the personalized gift tags and will coordinate assembly.

Networking will take place from 6 to 6:30 p.m., with the dinner and program beginning at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $30, and guests are welcome.
