TWIG Hosts Meet & Greet for Prospective Members April 16

March 29, 2013

TWIG, an auxiliary of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will host an informational “Meet & Greet” for prospective members 6 – 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at The Wine Bistro in Upper Arlington (1750 W. Lane Ave. Suite 100). The meeting will include complimentary hors d’oeuvres while attendees can learn more about membership in the women’s auxilian organization.

TWIG is an acronym for “Together With Important Goals” and consists of groups of women throughout central Ohio who dedicate their time, energy and talent in support of Nationwide Children’s. In central Ohio, there are more than 800 volunteers which make up more than 70 individual TWIG groups.

TWIG groups operate independently as well as participate in larger events as a whole organization including the annual TWIG Bazaar during the holidays and Pumpkinpalooza. While working to make a difference in the lives of children, TWIG members experience fulfillment in their own lives. Members meet new people with whom they share common interests and have the chance to network. Many groups form a TWIG in their neighborhood, place of employment or with a group of friends.

RSVPs are requested for the Meet & Greet on April 16. To RSVP or for more information, contact Cindy Laux in Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation at (614) 355-0819 or
