Over the first weekend in May, a couple of dozen women gathered at a grand old house overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Marin County to celebrate a milestone birthday for their friend Caroline Petersen.
Highlights from the long weekend included yoga by the pool overlooking the ocean as spouting whales migrated North in droves, hiking up in the hills above Stinson Beach, and enjoying oysters and wine in Tomales Bay. Prior to the gathering, one of the organizers asked Caroline’s husband Rich which charity her friends should donate to in her honor. Rich requested the Rosa Vera Fund, knowing how meaningful it was to Caroline. We were humbled by the Petersens’ charitable gesture and so grateful for their generosity. The birthday fundraiser took in $1,600 for the Rosa Vera Fund – a pretty good haul for a weekend! So Caroline and Rich, we raise a toast to you both—as well as to the generous donors—and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
