"Women & Wine Wagon" fundraiser in support of PACE Center for Girls is confirmed for Thursday, May 24. Please start bringing bottles of wine or spirits to any board member for the "Bathtub of Booze" Raffle.
At our most recent board meeting, the board approved the creation of new website for our group. We know it will be wonderful and easy to use - and we also expect a couple of hiccups as we all learn to use it and get it running perfectly.
The nominating committee is also pleased to announce the candidates for next year's Board of Directors. We will be voting on the slate of officers at the next luncheon. President - Carolyn Zaumeyer President Elect - Cheryl Freniere VP Corporate Records - Rodica Charles VP Membership - Anja Hessert VP Finance - Debbie Dempsey
VP Community Involvement - Shelley Pumphrey VP Internal Relations - Jenny Ritter Kelly VP Communications - Karen Dudden-Blake

Jaye Abbate is President & CEO of ArtServe
Jaye Abbate is President & CEO of ArtServe Fort Lauderdale. ArtServe was one of six original arts incubators in the U.S., with a mission of developing programs that support artists and cultural organizations as a means to creating vibrant communities.
Jay is an alum of Northwestern University, and a student of Massimo Vignelli at the School of Design and Architecture at Harvard University. Prior to ArtServe she was with the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and spent 25 years working in publishing as vice president of marketing and development, where she sharpened her marketing skills and fueled her entrepreneurial spirit. These experiences along with her many years serving on various boards in the non-profit community and resulting business connections, made Jay’s migration to ArtServe a natural fit.

Lauderdale Yacht Club
The compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime New York Times bestseller about one man’s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.
Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents’ indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle.
