As mentioned in an earlier post, the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth brings in various speakers like Bob Woodward throughout the year to discuss issues facing today’s world. But that’s not done without funding.
So, World Affairs Council President/CEO Jim Falk sent a letter out recently appealing for a financial kick. According to the letter, “We need help closing a forecasted shortfall of approximately $65,000 by the end of our fiscal year (November 30).”
The good news is that last week, the Les Femmes du Monde President Jan Ward handed over to Jim a nice check for $38,500 earned through the ladies’ efforts during the past year. While it brought a big, old smile to Jim’s lips, he’s still in need of additional funding.
BTW, Les Femmes gals also presented Children’s with a similar check.
