My Favorite Hat

Gloria’s creative and practical nature is best exemplified by her beret. Just as the beret has been worn throughout the ages by military personnel for its practicality and by artists as a symbol of creativity, Gloria seeks creative solutions to fundraising challenges and ensures practical implementation of systems and programs that lead to long-term sustainability.
