Alexandria On March 22, the home of designer Sydnye Pettengill served as the backdrop for The Child & Family Network Centers’ benefit kickoff. The event honored CFNC donors, and introduced 2012 Benefit Chair Elizabeth Reynolds Marino. Steering committee members include Lizzie Siegel, Ann Scully, Kim Gess and Lisa Herget. Committee chairs include Twig Murray, Tandy Harrison, Shazalynn Winfrey, and Alex Deringer.
“It was an honor and a pleasure to open my home to such a compelling cause,” said Pettengill. “Alexandria is a place of contrasts. The latest poverty figures indicating that one in five children from birth to six live below the poverty line in Alexandria astound me. CFNC’s programs attack poverty at its core, decreasing those factors while equipping families for success. I cannot think of a better way to insure the future of this fine city.”
CFNC relies on the community for much of its support. For more information or to schedule a tour contact Alison Doherty, development associate, at 703-836-0214 or email@example.com.
Based in Alexandria, CFNC provides bilingual, free education and social services to at-risk children and families in their neighborhoods.
