USF Tri-Gamma Women's Nursing Society's 51st Annual Fashion Show benefitting Good Shepherd Gracenter
Since 1965, Tri-Gamma has supported many local organizations to fulfill their mission of spreading “Goodness, Graciousness, and Generosity”. This year, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Good Shepherd Gracenter.
On Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016, thirteen staff members of Good Shepherd Gracenter participated in a training given by Cheryl Cutrona, from our sister agency, Good Shepherd Mediation in Philadelphia, PA. Our Opening Ceremony started in a Circle. Cherly introduced us to a heart shaped stone inscribed with the word “peace.” This stone became our “talking piece” and as we passed it around the room; we named, in one word our intention for the day, and explained our connection to Good Shepherd Gracenter.
