A Night With IFS 2013

Thank you for making “A Night With IFS” a success!

Margaret L. Woods, President & CEO, greets guests at the 1st Annual “A Night With IFS” fundraiser.

On behalf of Independence: A Family of Services (IFS) Board of Trustees and staff, let me express our deepest gratitude to those of you who attended the 1st Annual

A Night With IFS.

We exceeded our attendee goal of 50 people, and over 60 guests enjoyed a night filled with music, fun, networking opportunities, and a special IFS Martini in our signature burgundy color.  We also enjoyed a live performance by Queen Aaminah.

This event allowed us to showcase the many programs and services offered at IFS.

In addition, two former clients discussed how IFS changed their lives. Both men faced difficult challenges, but with the support and help of IFS, they were able to overcome these difficulties and start new business ventures.  Read their stories:

As an added bonus, Bryan Jenkins, Anchor, News 12 NJ, served as our MC and provided commentary on why we should continue to support IFS.

In the coming weeks we will launch our 1st Annual On-Line Silent Auction featuring autographed sports memorabilia from Knowshon Moreno of the Denver Broncos, and beautiful art work from various artists.

On a final note, unfortunately, on the night before this event we experienced a fire at our administrative offices that damaged our PC’s, network, and portions of the building.  Fortunately, no one was hurt, but we are late in sending receipts for ticket purchases.  Please accept our apologies for this delay.  We will send out receipts and formal thank you letters as soon as possible.

Once again thank you for your support of IFS.
