The American Red Cross Carolina Piedmont Region (based in Charlotte, N.C.) Tiffany Circle Society of Women members hosted fellow Tiffany members from several South Carolina regions for a welcome reception and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Tiffany member M.A. Rogers opened her Charlotte home for a reception on Monday, Dec. 5, during which the members from Charlotte, Greenville and Charleston shared their current projects and upcoming events.
The women also heard a moving story from Amy Jones, whose husband Arnie performed CPR on her when she suddenly went into cardiac arrest during her ninth month of pregnancy. Amy, Arnie and their beautiful now 2-year-old daughter Elizabeth were happy to share their story.
“Anytime I can tell people how important it is to be trained in CPR, I’m happy to do it,” Amy told the Tiffany women. “Thank you to all of you for the work you do to support the Red Cross.”
Elaine Lyerly, National Tiffany Circle Co-Chair, spoke about how women can affect change in a powerful way. In fact, she noted, the Tiffany Circle is now international, with Canada, England and other countries growing their groups.
The next morning, the Tiffany women gathered at the Tiffany & Co. store in SouthPark Mall for breakfast and a private shopping event.
Martha Allen, Tiffany member Co-Chair from the Carolina Piedmont Region, thanked the women for traveling from throughout the Carolinas to join in the fun.
“I never say ‘Give until it hurts,’” Martha said. “I say, ‘Give until it feels good!’”
