FOW Helping Behind the Scenes

Tech Week Meals! Everyone is Happy. Thank you to the 40 GRSF hospital team members who kept company members were well fed during the hectic tech week rehearsals. Company members are always enjoy and appreciate the wonderful food; Friends of Will enjoy seeing them eat favorites such as the taco bar and turkey meals.   Team-Co chair Karin Worthley described ” a very nice connection between volunteers and the company.  The atmosphere is relaxed, happy and grateful. People who make food feel like they are feeding their guests.”  Thank you, Jim and Karin Worthley for creating another wonderful experience for so many.  It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
