Hartford Chapter Volunteers at Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

The Hartford Chapter’s volunteer charity for 2015 is The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.  The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families free of charge. They are a community that celebrates the spirit of childhood, the sound of laughter and the feeling of endless possibility.

As part of the PLUS Foundation’s 2015 Chapter Charity program, chapter volunteers assisted with light maintenance activities around the camp.

Thanks to all who volunteered their time to make this a great volunteer event!

This event held at the Yale Club in NYC drew more than 215 professionals from New York City and surrounding areas. I commend the PLUS Eastern Chapter and the PLUS Foundation for putting on such a tremendous event.

This was the second WLN event I have attended in the last month and the second sellout crowd (the first was in Chicago). It was a fabulous event with great networking, an amazing venue, and an inspiring speaker. Michelle Mayes, Vice President and General Counsel with the New York Public Library expounded on the lessons she’s learned in her career and urged the women in attendance to take risk and find mentors and sponsors. Enjoy some of the photos from the event.

Editors Note: In addition to the photos from Robbie we received quite a few great ones from our event photographer as well. Please see the gallery below.
