As Betsy likes to say, she spent twenty years raising children and then thirty years raising money for and serving on boards and committees of non-profit organizations.
Some of the many organizations she has fundraised for include the Huntington Hospital in Huntington, New York and the Martin Health System in Stuart, Florida. She has chaired several major fundraisers, most recently the 2016 Chrysanthemum Ball in Stuart, Florida which raised over $650,000.
Named to the National Register of Historic Places, the Lyric Theatre in Stuart, Florida has served the community of Stuart since 1926. As a member of the Lyric Theatre's Board of Directors, Betsy raised funds for and helped to implement major renovations in 2014. Since 1996, Molly's House in Stuart, Florida has provided a home away from home for more than 17,000 while they or a loved one were receiving medical treatment. Besides being a long time supporter of Molly's House, Betsy has served on the Board for three years and is currently serving as Vice President of the Board.
In addition to the Board and fundraising experience Betsy brings to the Alliance, she also brings passion as a dear friend of hers from childhood and his family have the disease. Betsy has seen what this disease can do but she has also seen the results brought about by research and education and she looks forward to the opportunity to see this continue and ultimately find a cure.
