A note from Michael Carr on Dan Gottlieb

If I may say, or I just will, dan has not just conducted the research which was the cornerstone to many arguments, but also displayed an enormous amount of character and courage. Had SSB lost, a job was not only on the line but a career. He put the whole stack of chips in. The cases he made (with Jay Orsi) were like the basf commercials. they may not have made the final product, but they made what was in the product).

Wow! We have raised $800,000 so far on our way to our $1 million dollar goal, all thanks to the leadership gift of Alice Cary Brown, ’59. Join us today. Get your pledge or donation in right away to support the tremendous work going on at the new Sweet Briar College.

From Amy Campbell

Help, please. ’97 would like to raffle off some of our cow tag stash – either as a straight raffle (buy tickets, where ticket $ = donation) or a hybrid, where donation receipts earn you a raffle ticket. My Judge Judy/Law & Order law degree isn’t going to cut it. Can an actual lawyer please help us determine a legit way to do this? Thanks in advance.…/Charitable%20Gaming%20Regul…

My friend and colleague, Laura Lenhert, is working on pottery again, so those of you who were interested may now contact her and place your orders. What a great way to commemorate 7/2/15! She can duplicate what she so graciously created for me, or, you can send her a photo of what you would like, and she can do that for you. I have had her do fraternity/sorority houses for my kids, houses, and even my daughter’s bridal bouquet as a wedding gift. She can also personalize on the back. Laura will make a contribution to SSB at a later date based on the number of orders that either reference my name, or SSB. I encourage you to reach out to Laura:
email Laura:


Platters (like below): $50
Square platters: $45
Round Ornaments: $15
