Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Summer but keeping cool!
I just want to share the information that the wine my son and I recently launched is now available at select area Safeway stores and at Total Wines in Virginia. Please try to find the wine and support us, the wine is made in a lighter style perfect for these hot Summer days and is great as an accompaniment to Summer foods or on its own.

Hello Everyone. I'm a new member to NAPW, and hoping I'm not too out of line asking for help. My non-profit organization, St. John's Community Services (SJCS) is hosting our annual Grapes of Gratitude Wine Tasting Benefit on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at the Pepco Edison Gallery in Washington DC from 5:30 PM - 8:30- PM. For those of you who may not be familiar with SJCS, we are one of the oldest non profits founded in Washington DC, and this annual benefit is to raise awareness and continued funding for our nationally recognized innovative programs and services which support children and adults with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities, as well as other individuals seeking meaningful lives by removing barriers to employment, housing, social and recreational opportunities in DC and Northern VA. The dollars raised by this event helps cover needed expenses unmet by federal and state funding for our two state offices. This can include specialized equipment, recreational opportunities and clothing. Funds raised will continue to ensure that the people supported by SJCS can live comfortably and safely in their chosen communities, and participate in activities that enhance their quality of life.
The benefit will have sommeliers presenting 16 wines from around the world, a tasting menu, an exhibit of original artworks donated and for bid/sale by artists from our ART Options programs, and a silent auction of merchandise, services and entertainment donated by local businesses and individuals. I'm in search of sponsors for our event for both the event and items for our silent auction. If any of you would be interested in helping this great organization I would love to set up and appointment to come meet you personally to show you what I can do for you as a sponsor and donor to our event. Right now our event website is under construction, but please contact me directly at 202-274-2448 to set-up a one-on-one with me. Our main website is www.sjcs.org. Remember, charity starts on a local level, and what better way to support the Washington DC and Northern VA communities. Please call me ASAP.

Looks like no one was interested in going to the Caboose brewing company so we will cancel and try to do it again next month. Anyone interested in meeting up July 29 at 6:30 p.m. just message me here no later than July 28. Thanks!

You are invited to join NAPW Fairfax County Chapter June 24 (Friday) at 6:30 p.m. at Caboose Brewing Company, Vienna, VA. Just an informal gathering of women who want to network over awesome food and drinks (everyone will be responsible for their own food/drink purchase). I need a headcount by Thursday morning -- just respond to me here on the message board.

I am loving every minute of my career helping seniors (and small business bookkeeping). I saved a life a few weeks ago (one of my clients taking the wrong dose of medicine by mistake) and when I met their friend his comment was (from all that he had heard about me), "Are you an Angel? I can't see your halo." That just hit me well.

Hello Fellow NAPW Fairfax County Chapter members. One of the hardest things for me to do is talk about myself and explain exactly what I do because I do so many things. I've lived in Fairfax County all my life; the house my family has been in for 50+ years is walking distance to my home. You all seem to be a bit computer savvy, so I feel you are familiar with working remotely, and actually I've been doing it for longer than many of you even knew it existed. I became a Virtual Assistant when people would just say "what is that?" Well, I have grown with the times. I am not only a Virtual Assistant aka Personal Assistant, but I am also a Daily Money Manager aka Professional Bill Payer, a Bookkeeper (depends on if you are a commercial or residential client). If you go to my website www.TotallyforSeniors.com you will see many of the ways I help our seniors today. My clients are the seniors, but my clients are also their children and friends from anywhere in the US that are concerned about them and want to help but can't because for whatever reason. As for small businesses, I've been working as a Bookkeeper for over 12 years with small businesses and you can learn more about that part of my business at www.BookkeepingandAdmin.com. So, give me a call, near or far, I can be of assistance and make your life a lot easier and more comfortable. email@example.com, 703-403-2996
