On Tuesday, January 21st, 2015, Family Promise of South Palm Beach County held its annual meeting and volunteer appreciation event at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Over 120 people attended.
Executive Director, Kokie Dinnan introduced Karen Olson, Founder and President of Family Promise, who shared her amazing journey from the creation of Family Promise in 1981 to present day, where there are now over 184 franchises in 42 states and growing.
Kokie Dinnan shared her heartfelt thanks to Father Andrew Sherman, Co-Founder of FPSPBC and Michael Diamant, Board President, for their leadership and achievements over the past 6 years. Father Andrew and Michael are now transitioning into new roles, where they will lead our new Community Advisory Board and engage key members of our local community to further expand and support our mission.
Cindy Winter was officially recognized as the new President of the Board and new Board Members were introduced: Merrie Heniser, Ann Paton, Sharon Wagman and the Reverend Dr. Richard Barbour.
Cindy and Kokie then publicly honored and thanked all of the Volunteer Coordinators and Volunteers from our community Interfaith Congregations, whose tireless and selfless work make it possible for Family Promise to truly transform the lives of our families throughout each year.
We look forward to many more successes in 2015 and we thank all of you for your friendship and continued support!
