Pee Dee Women rename giving fund in honor of Courtney Graham, donate to seven local charities
Pee Dee Professional Business Women Network donated $100 to each of seven local charities at its Dec. 17 meeting at the Florence Country Club. Members donate to the group’s giving fund throughout the year and then divide it between local organizations. Recently, members decided to rename their giving fund after a former member, the late Courtney McInnis Graham who died in June.
Robin Lewis, club president, talked about the impact Courtney had on the group and in the community. She recognized the friends and family members of Courtney in attendance. She also made a special presentation of a silver tray and scarf in honor of Courtney’s memory to her mom, Mrs. John McInnis.
Receiving donations from the Courtney Graham Memorial Fund were Harvest Hope Food Bank, Empowered to Heal, Naomi Project, Lighthouse Ministries, SNAC, Habitat for Humanity and Hope Health.
The organization was formed in 1998 to empower women as business leaders for increased potential, passion and purpose through programs, networking, mutual support and encouragement and fellowship. Members meet monthly for a luncheon and program with speakers and education pertaining to women in business.
