The Treasure Coast Chapter, serving Martin and St. Lucie Counties in Florida, is proud to have won two 2014 BNC National Awards. The first award is for not only reaching, but exceeding our financial goal. The second recognized out chapter for reaching the highest per capita amount in the entire Florida Region in the Sustaining the Mind Campaign. Only 28 chapters nationwide received this honor!
Chapter President Barbara Sokolov received letters from Barbara Sander, National President, and from Frederick Lawrence, Brandeis University President, recognizing the Treasure Coast Chapter and its members “for raising over $10,000 this past year to support a wide range of critical needs at Brandeis.” President Lawrence goes on to say that BNC’s efforts play a vital role at the university, whether by funding scientific research into neurodegenerative diseases (via the Sustaining the Mind Campaign) or by supporting the libraries. Barbara Sander’s letter congratulates all chapters of BNC and each of its members for our hard work during the past year.
Our chapter will continue to work toward achieving our yearly goals. We have some fantastic programs, special events and study groups to make our journey a memorable one.
