The new Spirit of Jefferson hit news stands today. Bryan Clark came in to take us “Behind the Headlines.” You can get all the information by picking up the latest Spirit or checking it out online. We also got to meet the new Gastroenterologist at West Virginia University Hospitals-East Dr. Timothy Orphanides. He spoke about his experiences in the field and what brought him to the Eastern Panhandle. Teresa McCabe was with us as well for the latest on what's happening in the hospital system.
Next we got an important update on philanthropy in the area. Maria Lorensen and Robin Zanotti joined us to share their expertise. The Tri-State Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals is recognizing West Virginia lottery winner/philanthropist W. Randy Smithas the Individual Philanthropist of the Year. The group is also hosting three workshops before the luncheon designed to assist non-profit fundraisers and boards of directors in their work. Speakers for the morning sessions as part of philanthropy week. Cost of the three workshops and luncheon is $35/person or $240 for a table of eight.
