“I have never received so many fabulous comments about our speaker as I have with you.

I’ve been chapter administrator for this AFP chapter for 14 years, so I have a lot of National Philanthropy Day celebrations under my belt, but I have to say yesterday was the most enjoyable and the most uplifting we’ve had. There was such power and inspiration in your speech and at the same time, so much love. Thank you so much for making our annual event such a huge success!”  Kim Noyes, Association of Fundraising Professionals Southwest Florida Chapter
