December Meeting Recap

Happy Holidays, EWI San Diego! 

The December Chapter Meeting and Holiday Fundraiser “The Music of Christmas”, at Harbor House, was a truly festive evening!  If you were unable to join us, we missed you!

Programs Director, Colette Morel of Manpower didn’t disappoint with this venue!  We had a direct view of the crisp, moonlit water and all things that were adorned in Christmas lights.  Thank you, so very much, Colette for all the work you put in to making this a special evening for us. 

Colette delivered a thoughtful invocation and led us in the pledge of allegiance.  Courtesy Chair, and Life Member Anita Tindall then announced our December birthdays and guests of the evening.

For dinner, we selected our entrée of choice from a special menu (all entrees looked delicious – it was hard to choose).  While waiting for the meal, members enjoyed spending time with each other while placing bids on all the wonderful silent auction items and tantalizing edible goodies.

Fundraising Director Joy Malaise, of Promises2Kids led us all in some holiday fun by splitting us into teams to try and decipher Christmas Carols that were read to us backwards.  It was more difficult to figure out than you’d think!  As the countdown for final bids drew to a close, we sang a Christmas carol together and then Joy announced the winners of the auction items.

Special Thanks: Joy Malaise and her committee for making this evening another fundraising success (your hard work does not go unnoticed)! Everyone who generously donated items for the fundraiser and all who bid to help us achieve our fundraising goals: thank you!!  The EWI Chapter Board for the little purple “throne” – it is perfect!

Happy New Year, everyone!  May 2019 bring all the health, joy, love and success you each deserve.  I am excited to see what the new year brings for EWI and I can’t wait to experience it all alongside you.  See you at the January 15th Chapter Meeting (location to be announced first week of January).

November Meeting Recap

TGIF, EWI San Diego!  Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week!?  I can almost smell the turkey cooking now. 

Did you miss the November Chapter Meeting at member firm Flowers by Coley Here’s how we kicked off the holiday spirit…  


We were greeted at the door with scrumptiously scented votive candles and deliciously refreshing cocktails, courtesy of Kristy Weinzimer.  Once the meeting was under way, our Courtesy Chair, Anita Tindall, read and inspirational Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi and led us in the pledge of allegiance before announcing our November birthdays and guests of the evening.


From there we broke off into groups – some shopped first; others worked on the festive harvest-themed floral displays that Kristy and her team so generously let us create and take home.


While noshing on hors d’oeuvres from Wild Thyme Catering and enjoying the company of fellow EWI members, Fundraising DirectorJoy Malaise, of Promises2Kids announced the winner of the 50/50 opportunity drawing: Jennifer Hopper, of Bay Alarm Systems.


It was then time to thank Phil Blair of Manpower for a very informative and engaging webinar on “Negotiating Salary and Promotions” and then I provided the date of our next corporate webinar: December 4th at 12pm PST.  The webinar will be “Shape Your Time for Work Life Balance” and will be presented by Samantha Lane, Owner of Origami Day.  Next, I asked for people to join the Reading Rally committee and provided a little more detail of what’s involved.  If you are looking to be a part of a rewarding experience, please contact me or , Vice President – President Elect, Darlene Banogon, of North Island Credit Union

July Meeting Recap

Hello EWI of San Diego Members –


Roy’s – La Jolla proved to be the perfect place for our July EWI of San Diego Chapter meeting.   Thank you to our Programs Committee of Colette Morel, Manpower and Rachel Prochnow, Hilton Garden Inn (who was with us in spirit) for organizing this event.  For those of you who were unable to attend, we missed you! 


Our EWISP scholarship winner was announced, Jessica Denny.   Jessica is out of town until the beginning of the school year.  Instead of spending her limited funds on flying back just for last night’s meeting, the board agreed it would be better to introduce her at our October Chapter meeting.  She does, however relay her sincere gratitude!


After our delicious dinner we heard from Jose Cruz, CEO of the San Diego Council on Literacy.  Jose enlightened us to the problems of adult illiteracy, something I was unaware of.  Many adults have graduated from high school and even college with a 3rd grade or lower literacy IQ.  We heard how the lack of childhood education can linger far into adulthood with no-one recognizing the need and those affected  too ashamed to get help.  It was a very touching and informative presentation.


Following Jose’s program Joy Malaise, Promise2kids announced the theme of our August fundraiser and raffle  –  “Planes, Trains, & Automobiles…..and Boats” .   The Board will be putting together the raffle grand prize baskets (each valued at over $400).  Next week we will have more information on the fundraiser and Raffle Tickets that will be ready for members to sell to all their colleagues, friends and family, Stay Tuned….


Thank you all who were able to attend last night and continue to support our organization.  Hope to see you at our next Chapter Meeting,  August 21st, at La Gran Terraza for our Annual Fundraiser.
