The Women of Quail Creek President Peggy McGee and Janice Swain, who designed the cover and dividers for the A Shared Table cookbook, were invited guests at a November luncheon to honor clubs and individuals for efforts to support Genesis House, a local charity that provides shelter and advocacy for victims of domestic violence. In appreciation for the original $6,000 donation given to Genesis House in July from the proceeds of TWOQC cookbook sales, they received “You Made a Difference” awards. Patti O’Berry, founder and CEO of Genesis house, mentioned several times that the contribution helped pay off the lease-to-own option of the shelter’s mortgage.
The cookbook project, begun in 2014, has now officially ended as all the books have been sold. Another check for $1,000 has been donated to Genesis House bringing the grand total to $7,000. TWOQC wishes to express its heartfelt thanks to committee chair Claudia Ullevig and her hard-working committee for spending countless hours getting the cookbook published. TWOQC also thanks everyone that helped the project by contributing recipes, selling cookbooks and/or by purchasing cookbooks.
