Dear Mr. DiLenge,

Thank you for supporting the 5th Annual Women’s Invitational Golf Tournament hosted by Colony West Women’s Golf Group, to benefit Women In Distress. Jan Parke has informed us that you donated $100 from a 50/50 drawing, and we greatly appreciate it. On behalf of the families we serve, we would like to express our appreciation to you for your generous gift to Women In Distress. Your support will help many families affected by domestic violence, including Grace* and her son Jake*. Last month she found the courage to leave her abuser. At Women In Distress, Grace found the shelter and support she and Jake needed.

Thanks to you, our families are finding hope again. After coming from a life full of violence and fear, they can now look to a better future. Many have reason to celebrate as they have pursued their education, found employment, or welcomed a new baby into a safe home.

We are pleased to welcome you to tour the Jim and Jan Moran Family Center campus at any time and answer any questions you may have. It is always a special privilege to have community friends like you see firsthand how your support makes a difference.

On behalf of Grace, Jake and all the individuals we serve, thank you for your commitment to keeping families safe. There is no greater gift than that of helping someone in need to change and improve their lives and that is what you have done today.

With gratitude,
Mary Riedel
President and CEO
