SUPPORTER SPOTLIGHT: PATRICE KOEN
Patrice Koen, or Pat as she is know to her friends, helped make 2013
a special year for HAAM. As a longtime friend and supporter of the
organization Pat went above and beyond as a donor and volunteer last
year.
Joining HAAM’s Development Council early in 2013, Pat raffled off a
stay at her beautiful home in Taos New Mexico in support of HAAM,
brought on donors for last year’s HAAM Benefit Day, and twice hosted
Development Council events at the Four Seasons helping introduce new supporters to HAAM . At her March event HAAM raised over $30,000 in one night alone!

For all she did in 2013, and all we know she’ll accomplish in 2014
HAAM is grateful to have Pat in our world.
