Kudos to a Casa Myrna Champion
A huge thanks to Governor Charlie Baker for giving the keynote at our second annual Make It Your Business Reception on March 31! The Governor inspired business leaders to uphold a culture of support for employees and intolerance to domestic violence. His care for survivors and unwavering commitment to strengthen legislation in this area are outstanding. The event raised more than $10,000 for Casa Myrna. We welcomed close to 150 guests and presented the inaugural Corporate Engagement Award of Excellence to Charlene Bauer (Metro Credit Union), Carol Churchill (Distrigas of Massachusetts – GDF SUEZ) and Risa Sherman (Sam Adams – The Boston Beer Company). Thank you to Metro Credit Union and the Newmarket Business Association for hosting the event.
