WHW Celebrates 20 Years Party
On Friday, June 14th among supporters, volunteers, clients and friends, WHW celebrated 20 years of providing employment support services in Orange County. Guests walked the red carpet, had the opportunity to win prizes for what they remembered about 1993 and lunched on hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on site and with all the trimmings. Twenty inspiring client story boards wrapped the outdoor courtyard and a mini version of Déjà New, WHW’s Costa Mesa retail shop was available for browsing and shopping. Proclamations presented by representatives of Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, State Senator Lou Correa, Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen and Santa Ana Mayor Pulido were followed by hot popcorn and cotton candy. It was a celebratory afternoon that brought tears to the eyes of Roberta Kanter, one of the founders of the organization, who continues to marvel at her legacy. Since 1993, WHW has served over 35,000 clients at no charge and with no obligation, the only such nonprofit employment service provider in Orange County to do so!
