Alumni party to reunite old friends

The YWCA Darien/Norwalk is extending an open invitation to past members to the Alumni Cocktail Party Fundraiser, at which friends will have an opportunity to reunite and reminisce.

The party will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at a private residence in Darien.

"For many of us, the YWCA was an important part of our lives when we moved to town," Deidre McGovern, one of the committee members, said. "Many new YW members moved on to serve on committees for fundraisers, galas and house tours. We thought it would be great to have a party where everyone could reconnect."

The other committee members are Karen Perry, Jennifer Sommer, Amy Fraser, Shannon Silsby and Susan Daly.

Other goals of the fundraiser are to welcome new ideas and to share in the vision of the future.

"We would like to continue to meet the needs of our past members and provide programs that will benefit them going forward," Julie Forsythe, interim executive director, said.

The party is sponsored by William Raveis Real Estate Mortgage and Insurance.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at ywcadariennorwalk.org or by calling 203-655-2535. Guests are asked to register online.
