The committee chairs Lisa Scott Founds, Lee Sheffield and Alice Harry created another memorable luncheon to kick off Pinion’s Annual Membership campaign. The theme this year was based on the hit Bravo TV Show “Below Deck “.  Captain Lee and First Stewardess Kate Chastain joined the  Pinionites for the celebration.

The event started at 11:00 am with a cocktail hour followed by a luncheon and auction from noon – 2:00 pm. All proceeds directly support Special Olympics Broward County to help their very special athletes’ dreams come true
