E-Newsletter April 2011
We believe it's important to celebrate success—and that's exactly what we did this month, during our annual Grand Circle Foundation Dinner. More than 100 associates and community partners gathered in our Boston headquarters to reflect upon all we've done together this past year. As always, we had a lot to celebrate—including the efforts of two extraordinary women (including Deb Re, pictured with us at right), whom we honored with special awards. You can read more about them below, and view our photo gallery to see snapshots from the evening. You'll also find updates about our fundraising efforts in Japan and Thailand, and how we're giving back in Russia and Boston.
