Cultivating Peace of Mind Spring Fundraiser
Board Chair Rie Odsbjerg Werner opened the event on May 19th. We had 50 guests at a beautiful donated home in DC, and listened to moving and affirming educator and student panels speaking about the value Peace of Mind has brought to their schools and lives. Special thanks to the talented Brock Holmes for his lovely music,and volunteers Max W. and  Ellie S. for serving.
