I am thrilled to see all of you! So many faces of long-time friends and supporters, and so many new faces – this speaks volumes about the Women’s Giving Circle, our past, present and future. Our “circle” continues to overlap and grow. Thank you for being here!
My name is Barb Van Winkle and I am the Chair of the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County. I’ve been involved with the WGC for years, but this is the first year that I have the honor and privilege of welcoming you as the Chair.
I want to thank Howard Community College and Missy Mattey for allowing us to use this beautiful space and have our Annual Celebration in the Horowitz Center! And a big thank you to Lupa for the delicious food we have all been enjoying, and Beth Harbinson of SOBAR for her delicious non-alcoholic drinks!
I’d like to give you a little snapshot of the growth and strength of our circle today, by highlighting all of you – By the Numbers:

I hope our 2018 WGC By the Numbers overview and these photos have inspired you as much as it has me – it fuels all of us to continue to work together to support women and girls in our community. I’m feeling the need to support one another perhaps more than ever this year. So, to that end, I celebrate with you, I thank you, and I’m inspired by you.
