VISTA Marissa Castilleja Plays an Integral Role in Fundraiser’s Success

Marissa Castilleja VISTA 50th TestimonialOn Saturday,  June 18, Woman To Woman Pregnancy Resource Center held their annual Ladies’ Purse Auction at Robson Ranch. Throughout the year, Woman to Woman’s Twice As Nice Resale store authenticates donated purses and recruits local women and businesses in the Denton community to “sponsor” a purse and partner with them to raise money for their organization. The day of the event, the beautifully filled and displayed purses are available to be bid on during a silent auction while the women mingle and a wonderful brunch is served. AmeriCorps VISTA, Marissa Castilleja, helped in many ways throughout this event. She helped design the fliers and programs and researched the retail prices for the style show. She also emceed the Twice As Nice Resale Style Show the day of the event, managing 10 volunteers who contributed a total number of 20 hours of service. With over 145 women in attendance, the event received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and Castilleja helped play an integral role in raising $12,300 for her organization
