VIXENS HELPING VIXENS

Sarah Betz Bucciero needs your help to fund the SBC scholarship in memory of her son Carter.

“Carter’s Scholarship Update: I officially learned today that there is approximately $20k in the scholarship and so I need to raise about $30k more to have it endowed at the $50k level. This scholarship will go to any student directly impacted by cancer (self, sibling, or parent). I will be donating all of my commissions from Rodan and Fields sales this year to the scholarship”

You can help Sarah by purchasing Rodan and Fields items from her.

Anne Meyer needs your help to fund an educational trip through Europe as part of a history travel program offered by Sweet Briar.  Please click on the link below for more information on this amazing opportunity for Anne.

https://www.gofundme.com/tenehut8


Positive thoughts, prayers, and hugs are needed for Gwendolyn Hickey Babcock ’95 and her daughter Kaeden who is suffering from an undiagnosed brain disorder that triggers seizures often leading to respiratory arrest.  You may also donate to help out with the medical costs.

From John Edward Ashbrook in regards to his history class traveling to Europe this summer.

Hello everyone. I have some current students who want to attend my summer abroad course on the world wars and the Holocaust. We will be visiting battlefields in France, Belgium, Italy, and Poland, and Dachau, Majdanek, and Auschwitz between June 6 and July 3. The problem is lack of funding. I suggested they speak with the financial aid office first. But if they cannot get funding in that way, does anyone in this group have suggestions about how they could raise the money by March 10 or so? The trip per student is $3000. Airfare is separate but running about $1200. SBC alumna and friends pay $3500. Any ideas or advice is much appreciated! Thanks, John Ashbrook, SBC HISTORY


 THE CHARITABLE VIXEN

Kari Shipley ’76 has a request to all alumnae:  Next time you buy water in bottles consider saving the bottle caps for CAPS OF LOVE, an American charity that funds children’s wheelchairs.  Please remember that the bottle caps must be separated by grade. Thank you!

    just read the post about the history department trip to this summer – i am a current parent & hadn’t heard about this opportunity before! can there please be emails sent out to the entire abc community about trips like this! if had known about it beforehand would have considered joining! any trip offers by sbc should be made available to all students, alumnae, parents, friends of the college, etc – what a great way to build ties to the sbc community at large by traveling & learning together!!!

    1. Hi Michelle
      Thank you for reading Vixen Watch. I am a Sweet Briar graduate (’82) and the Sweet Briar alumnae representative for Florida. I started Vixen Watch sometime last year, mostly to keep my fellow Florida alumnae informed. Many of them are not on Facebook and that was where all the action was. Anything that I see on the web or Facebook relating to Sweet Briar or higher education is posted on Vixen Watch. So this is entirely a volunteer service and not directly affiliated with the college. The college had posted the trip on their website February 2 in the SBC news section http://sbc.edu/news/sbc-history-class-travels-to-europe-this-summer/. I am not sure who organized the trip and whether it is open to all or restricted to only history majors. I think you make a good point and I will forward your request to the college. Thank you for your comment and reading Vixen Watch. Monika
