SANCTUARY ANNUAL LUNCHEON
Well, we wound up indoors this year due to rain. And then, we were having so much fun that we forgot to take photos. Some attendees had already gone when Myrna's husband, Kirk, finally snapped away.
The ice breaker game was a big hit as always! We had some new faces and some who weren't in attendance due to last-minute, unexpected conflicts.
Laura Pensiero's (chef/owner of Gigi Trattoria & Catering) gourmet petit sandwiches went super fast as always.
This annual luncheon is a wonderful way for all of the faces of Sanctuary to get together, have some fun and bond over our shared love of what we do.
Thank you sponsors and supporters for your continued belief in the magazine. And a huge shout-out to the team! You are all irreplaceable!

SANCTUARY ANNUAL LUNCHEON
Team members, sponsors, supporters and their guests gathered for our annual luncheon in Salt Point, New York. This is Myrna Haskell's way of thanking everyone who supports our mission. It is also a wonderful way to get to know one another.
Special thanks goes out to Laura Pensiero, chef/owner of Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck, NY, and Fireside Barbecue & Grill (our neighborhood restaurant) for providing the delicious food! A big thank you also goes out to John, our enthusiastic, volunteer bartender, and Tegan, who is always there to lend a hand. T'Alyne (former featured artist in Sanctuary and owner of a fabulous off-grid Airbnb) and her husband, Harry, made it all the way from Colorado to be here with us! And, of course, a huge thank you to Kirk Haskell, supportive husband to Myrna and Sanctuary's biggest fan!
Each and every one of you is cherished for all that you do to help promote this special publication.

SANCTUARY ANNUAL "THANK YOU" EVENT
Due to the COVID pandemic, we were unable to host our annual event to thank team members, sponsors and supports.
This year, a luncheon was held at Myrna's house. It was a gorgeous day to be outside. It was also wonderful to see everyone and introduce those folks who hadn't met in person before.
You all are very special, talented and giving human beings.
Thank you, Gigi Trattoria (Laura Pensiero & Team) for providing the
delicious lunch entrees.
