In thanking Wolofsky and Witte for hosting the gift-giving event, Karen Swanson said, “Teri’s passion and energy put forth for Harmony House and the women and children it serves is truly admirable.” Swanson is 2nd Vice President of the YWCA of Palm Beach County’s Board of Directors.
Suzanne Turner, chief executive officer of the YWCA, explained that Harmony House provides sanctuary and supportive services annually to more than 600 women and children from throughout Palm Beach County. She especially thanked Karen Swanson for not only co-chairing the Harmony House luncheon the past five years, but also providing the leadership in bringing to the YWCA such dynamic people as Wolofsky and Sonja Stevens, who have also co-chaired the Harmony House Luncheon with Swanson. “Karen certainly embodies the characteristics of a treasured volunteer. Even though she has a special place in her heart for the women and children at Harmony House, she also is continually mindful and supportive of the varied needs of the association as well as all the clients and families being served. It makes no difference if a child in one of the YWCA’s child development centers, or a young girl in the Y-Girl’s program, or a homeless mother and her children residing in the YWCA’s transitional housing program in the Glades,” Turner said.
