Thank you shoppers and supporters of NCJW’s 43rd annual Designer Days! This year we celebrated NCJW’s 120th anniversary with a themed Patron kick-off party, “We’ve Come a Long Way, Ladies!”
We are indebted to NCJW Designer Days Chair Henry Krakovsky, Jr., and his fantastic committee including Jill Loiben, Roxanne Wolk, Jeff Herzog, Laurie Gottlieb, Jennifer Honig, Drue Miller, Claire Gross, Carolyn Jensen, Jessica Mirowitz, Melanie Querry, Kerry Parker, Bonnie Rubin, Barbara Shafran, Maxine Shepman, and Shayne Souleret. A special thank you to all of our NCJW volunteers (approximately 150 volunteers!) who manned the front lines, back room, and dressing rooms. Thank you Sally Wiggin for cutting the birthday cake and Joe King for creating the shopping mood at our Patron Event.
NCJW Designer Days would not be such a success without Lynn Tomasits and Linda Wills overseeing the entire event; Deb Teese Olszewski and her well-honed and incredible Thriftique staff, our fabulous Home Consignments and DDB staff with office support from Cheryl Devecka; Nancy Sansom coordinating volunteers; Morgan Drain and Drue Miller keeping us in print; and our Executive Director Andrea Glickman supporting all of the efforts.
Thanks to our shoppers, who shopped till they dropped, raising substantial funds that will help NCJW continue improving the lives of women, children, and families. See you next year!
