The Butter Paddle held its general meeting on March 13, 2012. Outgoing President, Susan Gutterman, was pleased to announce that the store, which sells unique gifts and home accessories, finished a successful first year in Los Gatos. She, along with store manager Doris Beccia, presented the annual donation check to EMQ FamiliesFirst representatives Darren DeMonsi, Development Manager, Fund Development Department and Jean Riney-Niewiadomski, Senior Clinical Director for Santa Clara County.
All profits from the store’s operations are donated to EMQ FamiliesFirst which provides much needed support to families and children in crisis. In addition to the store profits, sustaining members also made their generous annual donation at the meeting. Both donations were made to the Wellspring Fund which is used to provide music and art therapy, summer camps, tutoring, counseling and many other vital services.
The Butter Paddle and EMQ FamiliesFirst would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to all our customers that made this annual contribution happen.
