EWT Fund had a very successful fundraiser event and proudly HONORED Oya Freed as the “Woman of 2017”. She has been an amazing inspiration to all of us in the last few years with her dedication to raising funds and supporting women’s education in Turkey. In the last 3 years, she helped EWT Fund raise $20,000! This incredible sum enables EWT Fund to provide financial support to 50 high school girls for one year. As they say “behind every successful woman, there is a successful man” therefore we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Brian as well. They are the most generous power couple! We thanked them both.
Thank you so much for donating to our March 4, 2017 “Wines around Mediterranean" fundraising event at very generous Oya and Brian Freed’s beautiful house.
The event raised a record of $10,107 including $2,400 by 6 new families who signed up to provide financial support for 6 students ($400 per student). The total proceeds of the event raised enough funds to provide financial support to 25 HS girls for next school year!
98 people registered and donated to the event and 88 of them attended the event which was a record.
The band CAT KAPI (Cagatay, Aydin and Turk Er) entertained the guests with their wonderful live music while the guests were enjoying mostly homemade Turkish food and tasting variety of wines from Mediterranean countries. We are grateful for the band and all the volunteers who made food including delicious stuffed grape leaves donated by Harvest Natural Market in Katy.
Thank you all for being part of such a successful fundraiser and we hope to see you in our future events.
