Atlanta and Tampa CLS Societies were on the move during the week of July 8!
On Thursday, July 9, members of the CLS Wine Club got together at the Total Wine & More location in Brookhaven, Georgia. They attended the Vive-la-france Wine Class, where they explored the greatest wine making regions in France – from the marvelous range of often-overlooked wines of the Loire Valley to the elegant chardonnays and pinot noirs of Burgundy. The ladies enjoyed various French wines as well as learned how to master wine aisles of fine wine shops and any restaurant wine lists with ease. Cheers!
On Saturday, July 11, CLS members volunteered at A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab which provides expert and compassionate rehabilitation therapy and residential care to seniors. Volunteers provide activities for A.G. Rhodes residents including Bingo games, arts & crafts, holiday projects, games, parties & socials, and group visitations.
Also, on Saturday, members of CLS’s Tampa Society volunteered at East Hillsborough Habitat ReStore, which is a home improvement store that offers new and gently used appliances, furniture, building materials and more at a fraction of the retail cost. Each Habitat ReStore is locally owned and operated, and proceeds help build Habitat for Humanity homes. Volunteers assist by processing donations, preparing items for sale, pricing donations, loading/unloading donation trucks, cleaning & organizing, beautifying sales floor and more!
Finally, to wrap up the weekend, CLS members spent Sunday afternoon cheering for our hometown WNBA professional women’s basketball team, The Atlanta Dream! Since CLS is all about empowering women entrepreneurs, we set aside the day to pay homage to the Atlanta Dream ownership group, comprised of owners Mary Brock and Kelly Loeffler, the only all-female ownership group in Atlanta professional sports! In addition, the festivities of the afternoon was a fundraising benefit for one of our wonderful nonprofit partners, Friends of Disabled Adults & Children (FODAC)! FODAC’s mission is to provide durable medical equipment (DME) such as wheelchairs and hospital beds at little or no cost to individuals with disabilities and their families.
