The Fig Tree’s Virtual Spring Lunchtime Benefit

Friday, March 4, 2022 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm


The theme is “Spreading Seeds of Hope.” Guests are invited to gather before the program to meet and converse in small groups. The four speakers are people who were featured in Fig Tree articles in 2021-2022. A promotional video will feature an inside view on the staff, board, writers and volunteers’ commitment to share stories of people who are making a difference and to connect people with each other and with resources that improve their lives. There is no charge, but guests are invited to donate. Because the event is virtual, please preregister. The link can be found on The Fig Tree website, www.thefigtree.org, in the righthand column.
