Karly Shorts, Chapter Director at SWSG Point Park University, gives a shout out to Point Park University’s Fundraising Coordinator, Lauren Vernail, for all her hard work and dedication. 
“Lauren Vernail has been with our chapter for about a year, but she has made so many strides in her time as a mentor and more importantly as our Fundraising Coordinator.
Lauren is, first and foremost, extraordinarily reliable. If you ask Lauren to complete a task, you are guaranteed a response to your request within minutes and initiative to be taken toward this request within days. Lauren’s main duty includes seeking out donations for our Wake Up Wednesday fundraisers, where we give out coffee, bagels and donuts, inform people about what we do in SWSG and ask for donations. Thus, Lauren helps us to get the coffee, donuts, bagels and other pastries donated from local business.
So far, we have made roughly $100 each Wake Up Wednesday (we hold them monthly) and this was made possible by Lauren getting all of the food and drinks donated. Lauren’s most recent task was to search out food donations for our field trip coming up on February 23. Lauren was asked to seek these donations at the beginning of last week, and she has already secured four dozen donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts as well as 60 subs, chips and cookies for lunch for the girls.
I could go on for a lifetime about how incredibly organized, reliable, hard-working and inspiring Lauren is, and I truly hope that other chapters have fundraising coordinators as wonderful as Lauren.”
