2020 marked our fourth year sponsoring a table at the Julie Valentine Center’s largest fundraiser, their annual Valentine’s Day luncheon. Pintail’s Ross Kester currently serves on the board of the JVC. Our table was filled with colleagues and friends (pictured are Sydney Crane, Caroline Smoak, Mary Katherine Wyeth, and Penn Williams). This year’s speaker Rachel Denhollander easily held the attention of the approximately 1,000 attendees. An attorney, advocate and author. Denhollander became known internationally as the first woman to file a police report and speak publicly against USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.
The Julie Valentine Center is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides free, confidential services to victims of sexual assault and child abuse. As a community organization, they depend on the support of the community to provide these services to our neighbors.
