Karen’s Olive Oil Party Raises $3,000 for PfP

Our friend, Karen Kovalcik, held her annual olive oil fundraiser to benefit Playgrounds for Palestine on November 16th and 17th, 2006. Once again, she prepared a spectacular party, with delicious Middle Eastern food and various wines at her beautiful Yardley home for nearly 100 guests.

This year, Karen sold more than 15 cases of Palestinian olive oil (with orders for more), raising over $3000 for PfP.

We would like to extend our warmest gratitude to Karen for hosting such an inspiring fundraiser at home. One guest said: “It is heartening to see people like Karen who are willing to give so much of themselves and what they have for very little in return, save the satisfaction of helping others.”

Thank you, Karen, and everyone who purchased olive oil that day!
