      Mary’s Home Presents 11th Annual Fashion Show And Luncheon

      By Jackie Holfelder
         Returning after a year hiatus, Mary’s Home’s
      Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon had the
      ambiance of a family wedding as friends and
      acquaintances joyfully saw each other for the
      first time in months – or even years.
         The sold-out event took place at Willoughby
      Golf Club on March 15 and featured a silent
      auction filled with unique and eclectic items,
      a fashion show, coordinated by Lynda Hartley-
      Urban, that had models sashaying through
      the dining  room in outstanding  outfits and  a
      touching presentation by Mary’s Home resident
      Nneka Towine sharing the role the residence  Alean Timm, executive director of Mary’s Home;
      has played in helping her prepare for the best  Jan Lindsay, founder of Mary’s Home; and
      possible life for herself and her baby girl.  Ashleigh Waters, WPTV NewsChannel 5 anchor   Sandy Wetmore, Laura Shepherd, Renee Gould, Marney McKee, Lynn Hayden and

      United Way Foundation Honors

      Bob And Karen Croce For Humanitarian Efforts

         The United Way of Martin County Foundation recently
      presented Bob and Karen Croce with the 2022 Frances
      Langford Humanitarian Award during a reception held at
      Sailfish Point.
         The couple was honored for their ongoing philanthropic
      endeavors directly benefiting United Way and a multitude of
      nonprofit organizations throughout the community.
         “We made a conscious decision to give back to the
      community through United Way because they provide a broad
      spectrum of services to address many issues – from helping
      victims of domestic violence to youth substance abuse to caring
      for the elderly. It is the most efficient and strategic way to help
      local people reach their full potential,” Bob Croce said.
                                                         Elisabeth Glynn, Steve Pinnacoli, Karen and Bob Croce, and
