8th Annual Women in Philanthropy Luncheon

The Concord-Carlisle Community Chest hosted its 8th annual Women in Philanthropy Luncheon on October 3, featuring a discussion entitled, A Legacy of Farming and Community: The Verrill Family Shares Stories of Concord Past and Present.

Over 200 guests gathered at the Nashawtuc Country Club to hear from Jennifer and Steve Verrill about the long history of Verrill Farm in the community. Moderated by Brooke Redmond, Founder and Principal Consultant at Concord-based Radish Road, Jen and Steve shared heartfelt stories about their lives, their families, and their business.

“It was a real honor to be chosen to share some of our story about the history of our farm and our involvement in the community”, Jennifer stated.

The Luncheon was sponsored by Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty.

This event coincided with the launch of the Community Chest’s Annual Campaign and the recent proclamation of October as Concord-Carlisle Community Chest Month. Donations to the Community Chest provide direct support to numerous local non-profit human service organizations serving Concord and Carlisle’s neediest residents.

Thanks to all who joined us!
