Another Outstanding Result

VPW Foundation's 2016 Silent Auction, held April 14 in Winchester, produced another great result. Thanks to donors who gave us wonderful goods and services and to Virginia Professional Communicators who were generous bidders, we raised more than enough money to cover this year's Agnes Cooke Scholarship. The remainder will be invested for future scholarships.
