GUILDERLAND: Summer social for Liza's Legacy

Silent and live auctions will take place for numerous gift packages donated from businesses in the area, as well as music from classical guitarist Harry G. Pelligrin.

Guests will be able to view and order products from Southern Living at Home, which will donate 20 percent of its sales to Liza's Legacy.

The GWIB has been an active standing committee of the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce for about five years. The committee meets once a month to discuss different topics and teaches its members how to become involved with local nonprofit organizations. Recently, the committee decided it wanted to adopt a local nonprofit that needed help. The group decided to go with Liza's Legacy, because Liza's death was both tragic and very close to home.

Jane Schramm, executive director of the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce, is very involved with the GWIB and speaks highly of it. She says the membership is open to both men and women and welcomes new members interested in networking with local business people.

"We're a wonderful group of passionate women that care about each other, growing their professional careers, building their networks, and helping the community," she said.
