Foundation for Women

June 8th, 2006

Le Cirque de la Mer at the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla was the setting for the Foundation for Women's Spring fundraiser. Guests were invited to enjoy fine cuisine, music by the Dene Davidson Trio and The Monarch School Steel Drum Band, peruse auction items and more ... and it was designated "A party with a purpose!"

Foundation for Women was raising funds this particular evening for two of its main goals. One was their micro credit program, both here and abroad, helping women in need establish a business and an independent life. The other is their wellness connections project, helping women with life-threatening health concerns.

Guest Sally B. Thornton wittily worded this synopsis, "Just like, “a little lovin’, a ‘jump-$tart’,
can go a long way!”

And it does. Many a business women has been helped for as little as $250 turn their business ideas into a thriving business and independent life.

Among the many supporting the Foundation for Women were Linda and William Baughman, Linda and Larry Stirling, Rosie and Bill O'Brien, Tamara and Walter Novick, Dr. Padma Nanduri, Leigh and Stan Hartman, Jane Ellen David, Bink and Jack Cook, artist Dottie Stanley, UCSD Chancellor Dr. Marye Anne Fox, and the Event Chairs, Dianne York-Goldman and Dr. Mitchel P. Goldman of La Jolla Spa MD and DYG Mineral Makeup.

Dianne had this to say regarding the event and its cause.

" Dr. Goldman and I were honored to be the Honorary Chairs of the Foundation for Women's Le Cirque event. The Foundation for Women is a very important organization to us, as we personally believe so strongly in supporting health and wellness for women all throughout the world. The Foundation has done so much in aiding women and families in need within our own backyard of San Diego, but it also recognizes the greater need we have to support those less fortunate world-wide. Through being a part of the Foundation for Women, I have experienced first-hand the joy that comes from doing whatever you can, whether it be through financial means, time dedication, or donating your talents to support women's causes. Whatever you are able to give will be returned to you ten-fold in the satisfaction of knowing you are helping those who need it so much."

And Foundation for Women Founder Deborah Lindholm expresses it well too. "I met a woman who borrowed $4 - ..... She bought a comb, a pair of scissors and a mirror and she put her husband in business as a barber. Now she has a home and her children are in school. All because of $4."
