Marcy Whelan and Julie Whitehead recently represented ROI Search Partners at The Chocolate Affair, an annual benefit for Annie’s Hope. Annie’s Hope provides support services for grieving children, adolescents and their families during times of bereavement. The evening included lots of beautifully displayed, decadent chocolate provided by local bakers and chocolatiers, as well as live music and a silent auction. It was a fun night, but more importantly, it was ROI’s opportunity to support a wonderful organization that helps so many during a period of great unhappiness and stress.
“Annie’s hope was first introduced to me by a friend of a friend who lost her son in a tragic accident last year,” Marcy said. “I was invited to attend the organization’s annual trivia night in honor of him. It was obvious the outpouring of love and support the organization provided not only to this young man’s family, but many, many others.”
Marcy said that when ROI started making plans for which organizations to support in 2018, Annie’s Hope was top of mind. “You can make a big impact for so little,” she said.
