Pinion, inc spends their year having fun and raising funds for Special Olympics.
The June Social - aptly named " Heard it through the Grapevine" - celebrated a very successful 2011/2012 year. The staff at Timpanos presented attendees with Cham" Pinion" cocktails and Sangria which was underwritten by Total Wine and Santos Sangria . The tables all dripped with grapes themed centerpieces donated by Fresh Point Produce, a long time supporter of Pinion.
Once everyone settled in, the fun began. Outgoing President, Debra Lieberman presented Special Olympics with a check for $100,000 and Victory Living with a check for $10,000. She then introduced the incoming President Alice M. Harry. Alice then introduced this years theme " The Passion of Pinion" along with the 2012/2013 Board of Directors.
The day wrapped up with an exciting live auction which featured " A Day with the BSO" and a VIP experience at the new Marilns Ballpark. The end of the year event kicked off the new year's "fun" raising by bringing in over $5000 to Special Olympics.
