Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club 4th Annual Luncheon
Benefitting the For Her Glory Foundation,
Cooking Instructor and Author, Ginny McCormack, Guest Speaker

Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club is sponsoring their 4th Annual Luncheon to support “For Her Glory” Foundation. This Foundation was started by former Phoenix Member Judy Piotrowski. The mission is to preserve the dignity, self esteem, and sense of well-being of cancer survivors who need wigs, prosthe-ses, mastectomy bras, or other items as a result of chemically induced bald-ness or a mastectomy. For Her Glory fund seeks to help restore the quality of life for those cancer survivors who cannot financially secure these products through other resources.

Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club 3rd Annual Luncheon
Benefitting the For Her Glory Foundation,
Georgia First Lady, Sandra Deal, Guest Speaker


Sandra Deal & Jackie CooleyThe Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club hosted their 3rd annual luncheon on August 13, 2011 with proceeds going to For Her Glory.  Featured speaker, “First Lady Sandra Deal was the second president of the Phoenix Society, the first being former school Principal Shirley Whitaker," said Connie Howard-Propes, a charter member of the original group.

Cancer survivor and Women's Club third vice president Brenda Martin said the club hoped to raise $3,000 at their third annual event.  “There are a lot of women who are cancer survivors including myself,” she said. “When you go through chemo and you lose your hair or you lose your breasts you sometimes don’t feel like a woman. That wig can make you feel like a lady again, and that’s why we do this, to help these ladies get their dignity back.”
