Volunteers of the Month



Our Volunteer of the Month for December is Kim Cutler! Recently, Kim served as Co-Chair of our Annual Candlelight Gala in Boston. She spent numerous hours leading up to the event assisting with the planning of the gala, recruiting volunteers, and soliciting donations for our silent auction.

Susan Linn, President and CEO, remarked “Without Kim’s guidance, hours and hours of volunteerism, giving spirit, and forward thinking positive energy, our gala would not have been nearly the success – or fun – that it was!  I am so grateful to Kim.”

Judy Bowe, Director of Development, commented “Kim helped us to take the annual gala to another level this year!  The success was due to the many hours of time and talent she contributed.  She was so generous in sharing her knowledge and leveraging her network to benefit EFNE.  We are so fortunate to have her in our community!  We are grateful to you for all that you do.”

In addition to her work on the gala, Kim has been a strong advocate for our EFNE volunteer program, recruiting a number of her colleagues from the company where she works, Salesforce,  to become volunteers for EFNE. We are thankful for all the connections she has helped us forge with new volunteers and her strong support of the work we do year round. 

Kim, all of us here at EFNE are grateful for your positive sprit, enthusiasm, commitment to our cause, and for the time you have shared with us!
