Happy Birthday, Leah Karpen!

7 Jul

Today is Leah Karpen’s 90th Birthday. Leah is a treasured member of the Asheville community. She is also a treasured part of the YWCA community. Her involvement with the YWCA stretches back for years. She served on the YWCA board of directors during a critical time in the organization’s history. A long-time donor, she was an advocate for the YWCA’s renovation and expansion. Walking her talk, she served as Honorary Chair of the YWCA’s capital campaign, which raised 3.8 million dollars. A devoted member of Club W: The YWCA Health & Fitness Center, you will see Leah exercising here at least twice a week. We are honored to know such an inpiring woman! Happy Birthday, Leah!
