    A Circle of Thanks

    By Steve Gregg

    Volunteers and donors are the lifeblood of nonprofit organizations. Recognizing this, New Directions for Women (NDFW) held its second annual Circle of Life breakfast to honor these contributors and pay thanks to their efforts. Almost 200 supporters attended the breakfast March 18 at Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach. The event featured speeches from Carole Pickup, New Directions for Women Foundation board chairwoman, Karen Crosson-Lutz, Foundation board member, staff and alumnae from New Directions and an update with the latest on New Directions for Women from Executive Director and Chief Executive Becky Flood. 

    “Our supporters are what keep us strong and make our work possible,” Flood said. A 30-bed facility in Costa Mesa, New Directions for Women helps Southern California women overcome alcoholism and chemical dependency. 

    The Circle of Life breakfast honored Carole Pickup with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her dedication and more than 30 years of support for New Directions. 

    The breakfast also raised funds to further the organization with Al Crosson a local donor vowing to match donations dollar for dollar up to $20,000.
