        S.M.A.R.T Women Spa Retreat Luncheon to benefit the H.E.R. Shelter

S.M.A.R.T Women Spa Retreat Luncheon to benefit the H.E.R. Shelter



S.M.A.R.T (successful, motivated, and really tired) women gathered at Greenbrier Country Club to relax and enjoy a spa luncheon while raising awareness and proceeds for the H.E.R. Shelter. The guest speaker was Georgette Bridger, who herself received assistance from the H.E.R. Shelter 25 years ago. She is an inspiration and proof that with a little help and guidance anyone can change the path they are on. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, the H.E.R. Shelter is there to help. HERShelter.com, 485-1445.
