Members and guests of the NAPW Annapolis, MD Local Chapter gathered on January 16th for a professional networking meeting. During the luncheon event, the group of professional women agreed to work together to support two very worthy Veterans’ organizations: Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that honors and empowers injured service members and the Fisher House Foundation, which works to provide homes for families of injured military to stay in near the hospitals where their loved ones are being treated. Chapter member Linda Mathieu was the monthly meeting’s guest presenter and shared information about Meleluca, a company that offers green products.

“We had a great meeting,” said NAPW Annapolis Local Chapter President Cathy Wayson. “Linda gave a wonderful presentation introducing Melelcua products. And, we chose our charities that we are going to represent and work to donate monies to: Wounded Warriors Project and Fisher House.”

Following through on its commitment, the Annapolis Local Chapter will hold its first fundraiser on March 6th at the Green Turtle in Annapolis at 6:00pm, which will benefit the Fisher House Foundation.

“We will have a fundraiser for Fisher House on March 6th at 6:00pm at the Green Turtle in Annapolis,” said Cathy. “I will be presenting Seacret Skin Care products and 50% of all sales will be donated to Fisher House. Fifty percent of the sales from any parties that are booked from this presentation will also be donated to Fisher House.”
