Dear Liza:

Thanks so much for speaking at our Sixth Annual Friends of Women's Studies luncheon. Your presentation was great and we have received many positive comments about it. As you know, this luncheon allows us to raise money to fund our Women's History Month lecture series as well as aspects of our annual Expanding Your Horizons in Math and Science conference for middle school girls. We were able to raise enough money to host both for another year!

Our audience appreciated your candor and your humor. It is a rare person who can deliver a talk about a serious issue without depressing the audience. You [Liza] managed to impart valuable information, spur audience members to action, and leave us all feeling empowered. Thank you.

It was enjoyable to meet you and talk about your family, life (and cancer) experiences. I am so glad that Vicki brought you to our attention.

Thanks again for helping make the Friends of Women's Studies luncheon a success.
