Virtual Garden Party Raises $62,000 to Support New Mothers

The Women’s Council held the first virtual Garden Party, “Here Comes the Sun,” in June and raised $62,000 for Family Connects, a home visit program for new mothers in Forsyth and Davidson counties. It provides free, in-home visits from a trained RN two to four weeks after the birth of a child and connects families with key community resources.

“The Garden party was a success even though we had to take it virtual,” said Leigh Ann Janjua, Garden Party chair. “We were happy with our Zoom turnout and thrilled to be able to help Family Connects.”

Many thanks to our generous sponsors: Hayworth Miller Funeral Home, Reynolds American, Allegacy Federal Credit Union, Wells Fargo, Lindsay and Gardner CPAs, Piedmont Triad Anesthesia, UNC School of the Arts, Forsyth Tech, Lottie Kay, Shelby and Lee Chaden, and Pam Oliver, MD.
